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.
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.
