The Lions Cup

The Lion's Cup page header.

The York University Lions Cup began in 2001 as the Chair’s Cup. Marshall Cohen, then Chair of the York University Board of Governors, and his wife, Judi, envisioned creating a “friend-raiser” as well as a fundraiser, to rally friends, alumni and other supporters around a great cause – student financial aid.

Thanks to 2:1 matching from the government, Lions Cup has raised more than $5 million, helping more than 330 outstanding graduate students over the last 14 years.


Title Sponsor

We are happy to welcome a new title sponsor for this year's tournament – 407 ETR. The tournament began at Wooden Sticks Golf Club and then was moved to Copper Creek Golf Club. For a second year in a row, the 2015 tournament was held at Lionhead Golf & Country Club.

The tournament’s ability to succeed year after year rests largely on the shoulders of a group of very dedicated and highly passionate volunteers who make up the Lions Cup committee. In particular, co-Chairs Guy Burry (BA ’82) and Greg Stack (BA Spec. Hons. '81) have worked tirelessly to ensure the tournament’s success each year.
