Welcome to The Canadian Black Book – The Value. Our goal is to provide our clients and partners with news, event updates, new initiatives and opinions from Canada’s trusted source for vehicle values and automotive insights. In this edition we cover:

- Canadian Black Book Kathy Ward Memorial Golf Tournament SOLD OUT!
Organizers at Canadian Black Book have announced that response to the annual golf tournament for 2018 has exceeded all expectation and has been sold out faster than any previous year.
In February Canadian Black Book proclaimed that the 21st annual edition of the well-known auto industry golf day will be renamed in honour of the company’s former CEO, Kathy Ward. Moving forward, the tournament will be known as – The Canadian Black Book Kathy Ward Memorial Golf Tournament.
As always, tournament proceeds will be donated to Kathy’s charity of choice – the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation. After twenty years of this golf tournament, over $400,000 has been successfully raised for the charity.
2018 is getting a major boost from an extremely touching donation from Kathy’s husband, Harm DeJonge. As recognition of the appreciation from him and his family, DeJonge has committed to match any donations made in Kathy’s memory, until the end of this year’s tournament, up to $50,000.
For 2018, the Canadian Black Book Kathy Ward Memorial Golf Tournament will be held on September 10th, at one of Canada’s premier private golf courses, Magna Golf Club in Aurora.
Canadian Black Book would like to thank all the sponsors and participants for their continued support of this event and The Tim Horton Children’s Foundation.
