2018 year marks the 30th annual Kitchener Sports Association Volunteer Recognition Night. We really hope that you will take the time to have one of your organizations’ key volunteers publicly recognized as part of this program in 2018. Keep in mind that peer (teen) volunteers as well as adult volunteers can be recognized.  Age is no limit!

The celebration is being held at the Edelweiss Banquet Facility, 600 Doon Valley Road in Kitchener on Tuesday, November 27, 2018.  While there may be some KSA announcements and/or cheque presentations at these events (2017 was no exception), the actual award presentations to the volunteers follow dinner in a pretty consistant format developed over the years. 

In keeping with tradition, your group is encouraged to select one individual as your “Volunteer of the Year”.  Please share this information with your Executive promptly and then do the following: 

a)      Complete the Volunteer of the Year nomination form. The Kitchener Sports Association will pay for your recipient’s dinner, as well as the dinner for the presenter. (NOTE: Nomination paperwork is requested by the November 9 deadline.) 

b)     Completed paperwork (for 2018) can be mailed to: KSA Volunteer Recognition Program, c/o Russ Woloshyn, 22 Chartwell Court, Kitchener, Ontario, N2A 3M1 or submitted via Email to Russ at:

 c)   Complete the dinner ticket order form and return it along with your payment (by Nov. 16 please).  Organizations are encouraged to bring as many volunteers as possible to honour your recipient. (Please submit at least a week prior to the actual dinner date.) 

 Deadlines:  These dates allow us to make appropriate dinner and seating arrangements with the Edelweiss, have programs printed and have the plaques available for the event. We cannot guarantee we'll be able to handle late submissions. Please be early!

Cash payment will also be accepted at the door but we need to know the numbers attending a week prior to the event.  

PLEASE NOTE:  Cancellations and ‘no shows’ may be charged to the association that the individual is with.

We request the person introducing his/her association’s recipient relate a short (30 - 60 second) summary of the highlights of the recipient’s career with your organization.
