The Academy also received $10,000 from the Kevin Weekes Celebrity Charity Golf Classic which was held on the picturesque island of Barbados last July.

STL selected Best of Bayview!
STL was selected as the "Best of Bayview" and "Best of North York" 2009 (Community & Public Eye) by Post City Magazines. Our official selection was announced in their 20th anniversary edition "Best Of" issue in both the Bayview Post & North York Post, November 2009. The annual "Best Of" issue is one of Post City Magazines most popular, hardest to get into and most widely read issue of the year. 
It takes teamwork to make the dream work!
The sky was truly the limit for STL in 2009. We began delivering laptop computers instead of desktop computers thanks to our friends at IBM Canada. Thanks to the generosity of our various donors, we ensured our successful expansion to three new cities. We increased our laptop donations to our existing partners and were able to help many new recipients.

We couldn't have done it without your help and the hard work of the STL team. Pictured with me above are Grace Han, STL Assistant (left) and Lisa McPhee, STL Ambassador (right).

We are excited about our plans for 2010 and we are confident that our team will make many more dreams come true this year!
