The Bonner Boys were started in the spring of 2004 after the passing of a close friend, Brent Bonner. The original idea was to provide funds for his son Benjamin’s future through a fund raising hockey tournament.
From 5 original members to 30, from one event to 5 annually, and from one heart felt thought to endless possibilities, this club has become so much more.
Over the past years we have been able to provide the community with an annual hockey tournament and golf tournament. We have also assisted with the Brent Bonner Mixed Baseball Tournament, and have taken part in the Uxbridge Fall Fair with a Dunk Tank. Along with the support from the community we raised over $500,000 to build a splash pad for the kids of Uxbridge.
All of the events we run or assist with have a few objectives: Fun, Memories, Friendship and Community!
We have been able to achieve all of these objectives through hard work, volunteering and the support of the community as a whole. We are also very lucky to have sponsors who believe in our cause and make the effort to help wherever they can.
We are proud to say that we have achieved and exceeded our goals and expectations. In memory of our friend Brent Bonner we have been able to donate roughly thirty thousand dollars back to community programs and individuals in need. We plan on maintaining our status as a strong community supporter in the future and will continue to assist those in need wherever possible.
Our friend has passed but his memory will live on through the actions we take everyday.
