   COVID 19 NOTICES

                         29th ANNUAL
                   MICHAEL DUNAHEE

                  TOURNAMENT OF HOPE

Posted May 6, 2020

                August 7-9th 29th Annual

             Michael Dunahee Slo-Pitch

                 “Tournament of Hope”

                              Cancelled

The Michael Dunahee “Tournament of Hope” is the single largest fundraising event for Child Find BC. The event usually sees 28 slo-pitch teams, sponsored by local trade unions participating in this charity tournament. Over the years these teams and their players have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars that aid in supporting the efforts of Child Find BC and the Michael Dunahee Search center.

It has now become clear to Child Find BC that due to the COVID 19 pandemic, any attempt to host an event of this size could present a substantial risk to the players, volunteer staff and the community, and would likely be prohibited under Provincial Health Directives.

It is therefore, with much regret that Child Find BC announces that the 29th annual Michael Dunahee “Tournament of Hope” will not be occurring this year on August 7th, 8th and 9th at Topaz Park in Victoria BC.

Given this decision and funding shortfalls due to the COVID 19 pandemic, over the coming weeks and months Child Find BC will be reassessing its future and how best to continue to provide support and education to families and communities throughout BC.
