Hollyburn Country Club

September 8-11th, 2011
Chad's friends and colleagues at the Hollyburn Tennis Centre started the Chad Warren Charity Challenge in his memory. The focus is on having a fun, friendly tournament, while raising some money and awareness of Chad's cause: the HRCTU at the VGH/UBC Hospital Foundation. In the first year, it raised just over $9,600.
Thanks to Sharon Jenvey and Tony Macken for organizing the event, everyone who donated raffle and silent auction items, everyone who bought raffle tickets and bid on silent auction items - and especially to the 126 people who came out and played!
“In the summer of 2006 I was off treatment for a few months so my buddy JJ and I played the men's open summer tennis circuit. It felt so good to compete and we managed to do OK reaching a few finals and finishing as the number 3 doubles team in BC for that year. I've enjoyed my nights out playing poker with friends and dinner nights in watching our favorite HBO shows. I have a good life and would never take it for granted.”
