All proceeds from the 2018 tournament will support Sunnybrook’s Cochlear Implant Program. Since the inception of the program in 1984, our team has restored hearing to over 1,500 profoundly deaf Ontarians with this remarkable device. We perform the largest number of adult implants in Canada, and advance breakthrough research to improve the technology for future recipients.

When the device is first activated following implantation, patients are often overcome with emotion as they experience sound for the first time in many years – or for the first time ever.
