13th Annual Julia's Hope Cup

We are pleased to announce that the 13th Annual Julia's Hope Cup will be returning to Chippawa Park Pond in Welland for our traditional annual pond hockey tournament and carnival on Saturday, February 17, 2024.

Julia's Hope Cup is a celebration of the life of Julia Turner and her humanitarian spirit, while raising funds in support of The Hope Centre. This family event is open to anyone in the Welland community and is FREE to attend. 

Years ago, Paul Turner created the Hope Cup Pond Hockey Tournament to raise money for the Hope Centre. This festival gathered families in the community for classic outdoor Canadian pond hockey with an indoor silent auction and amazing prizes donated by local businesses. The name changed 10 years ago to Julia’s Hope Cup after Paul’s daughter Julia passed away, to honou
r the life of Julia and her inspiring spirit. Read Julia's Story

Funds raised will go towards The Hope Centre's food security programs, including their food bank and commmunity lunch program. In 2023, The Hope Center had over 19,000 visits to their food bank and served over 32,000 community lunches to help the most vulnerable in our community. More people than ever are facing food insecurity in Welland and depend on the support from their community.

This year, The Hope Centre is celebrating 50 years of Hope in Welland and Julia's Hope Cup is aiming to raise over $50,000 to support their mission.
