Big Fat Idea – Junior Gold Mining Exploration

Alex Heath of Ethos Gold Corp talks to Mike about what to look for if you’re looking to invest in the early stage of junior gold mining exploration.

Special Olympics Golf Tournament

As you may know, our good friend Michael Campbell is Past President and an Executive Board Member of the BC Special Olympics. He is also actively involved as the Chairman of the Newmont Invitational Golf Tournament which supports the BCSO.

Throughout its history, the Newmont Invitational has been known for its premium golf experience and its power to make a difference for Special Olympics BC’s inspiring athletes and empowering programs. Too often, people with intellectual disabilities are forgotten and left behind by our society, and the pandemic has intensified their isolation. The 2021 Newmont Invitational will be your opportunity to make a critical difference in the lives of athletes who rely on Special Olympics for sport, health, skill building, and most of all, friendships.

We need your help, especially this year.

Sponsoring or Donating an auction item to the Newmont Invitational Golf Tournament directly supports the lives of the athletes. All donations are greatly appreciated!

Examples of past auction items that have been generously donated include:

  • Vacation packages and hotel stays
  • Precious metal bars
  • Media / ad buys
  • Experience packages
  • Stadium suite memberships
  • Luxury alcohol
  • Electronics
  • Gift certificates

If you can’t think of anything that you might have readily available, we encourage you to provide support by reaching out to partners and suppliers for auction item donations. The only way any of this gets done – the only way to break through the noise and bustle of everyday life is to ask people you know – ask your contacts. And that’s where you come in.

These children and adults, along with their families, deserve our support. Special O helps build a bridge to the community at large for many individuals who, before joining Special Olympics, were isolated and alone. This is where our 4,800 athletes across the province and tens of thousands more across the country build friendships and self-esteem. It’s not an exaggeration to say these donations literally change people’s lives.

Sure hope you may be able to help, Please email me at
