Benevolent Fund

Announcing the inauguration and dedication of the

We Remember...kids played because she cared

It is with deep sadness and an ever abiding debt of gratitude for her enthusiastic, dedicated and prolific volunteer service to the GCBA and its members, that we acknowledge the loss of our very dear friend, ardent supporter, and volunteer extraordinaire; Pamela Quinn.

As a  long serving volunteer supporter of all GCBA programs; a former House League Convenor, Tournament Director, VP Competitive, and Executive secretary, Pam will be remembered as a woman of vision, compassion, and selfless service. She was an energetic, thought-provoking and knowledgeable policy maker, with extraordinary organizational and interpersonal skills, but above all, she was a truly gifted communicator whose love for the game of basketball and heartfelt mentoring of hundreds of volunteers, over many years, allowed countless youth within our community to realize their personal "hoop" dreams and guide these into fruition.

It was Pam’s fervent wish that we continue to encourage and support all young athletes who dream the dream of playing basketball one day and to assist them in this goal by all means possible. To this end, the GCBA is pleased to recognize her efforts in this regards with the establishment of a perpetual Benevolent Fund named in her honour. Donations to this fund will be used to subsidize the fees and other playing expenses for players in need.  To apply for assistance please contact the VP of your program.

Donations may be sent to:

Through this fund we will remember her spirit and love for basketball in our community. 

We will honour her by carrying on the volunteerism and the dedication that she so readily exhibited. 

All who knew Pam on a personal level will always cherish the time they had to share with her..and  remember her vibrant smile, her sense of humour, and, above all, her friendship.

Pam will be sadly missed but never forgotten as her positive attitude, passion for life and love of the game, is an inspiration to all who aspire to play, or who wish make a difference in their community. 

Her spirit and passion are indelibly woven into every fibre of everything the GCBA currently is...and all it endeavours to be.
