University of Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation

Wilbert Keon Memorial Golf Tournament

At the end of 2022, Colin was awarded the position of Chair, leading the way to a fabulously successful 2023 event, held at the prestigious Royal Ottawa Golf Club, raising a whopping $215,507 for the Universty of Ottawa Heart Institute. He remains the chair of the committee for the 2024 event, being held at the Royal Ottawa once again. Click here for details to join this exciting event.

Colin's journey to the seat as Chair of the Wilbert Keon Memorial Golf Tournament began back in 2016 with 24 Hours of Golf, a Charitable Event created and lead by Colin and his childhood friend Scott Johnson. Both Colin and Scott lost their father's (Tony Zappia and Ron Johnson) to Heart Disease and decided to create this event in honour of them, to raise awareness and funds to help combat this disease. 


Supporting Ottawa Sports - Ottawa 67s and Ottawa Senators

Colin is also a Colour Commentator with Rogers TV for the Ottawa 67's Home Games and Special Events with the Ottawa Senators. 


Giving Back to Those Who Need it Most

The Ottawa Humane Society is a charity near and dear to our hearts. In 2015, we visited the Ottawa Humane Society and adopted our adorable cat Zipper who was 2 years old at the time. She has added so much joy and love to our family and we couldn't be more thankful that the Ottawa Humane Society was there for her when she needed them and that she was then able to find her way to a loving home like ours. We believe that all animals deserve this chance. 

Our monthly donations are important as they help the Ottawa Humane Society to provide a safe haven for animals with nowhere else to turn; they help rescue, reunite and re-home vulnerable animals.

The Ottawa Mission is such an important charity for our City. ​With homelessness on the rise, housing has been declared an emergency in Ottawa. Our monthly donation provides food, shelter and vital services and programs to the hungry, homeless and hurting people in search of building brighter futures.
