Lixar’s Dunk Tank Challenge: Raising Money for Kids Help Phone

Lixar I.T. Community

On Monday July 15th, Lixar brought a refreshing twist to Bell’s Hackers and Whackers Golf Tournament. Golfers stopped by the Lixar Lounge on Hole #1 to enjoy an ice-cold beverage and cool off with Lixar’s Dunk Tank Challenge. Participants could choose to dunk our brave Lixar team members, challenge one of their foursome to get in the tank, or nominate a Bell VIP to take a dive and start the next hole soaking wet!

The weather could not have been more dunk-friendly. The sun was beaming down a balmy 27 degrees celsius, and a light breeze dried dunkees off in the span of a few minutes, leaving them refreshed and ready to play some golf. Great fun was had by participants and Lixar team mates alike, with all proceeds going to Lixar’s Community Partner, Kids Help Phone – an organization that offers 24/7, support to youth in crisis. They provide kids with professional counselling, information and referrals and volunteer-led, text-based support.

We’d like to give special thanks to our partners at Bell for being a part of the fun, to GreyHawks Golf Club for graciously accommodating their first-ever dunk tank, to Lixar team members for being dunked a collective 40 times, and especially to Bell’s Rick Gauthier for being such a good sport (and bringing a change of clothes).
