In 1986, award-winning Canadian broadcaster and journalist Peter Gzowski began raising funds for literacy through an annual golf tournament, the Peter Gzowski Invitational (PGI) – a single event that evolved into the national PGIs for Literacy. His goal was to raise much-needed resources for the thousands of adult learners in literacy programs, while having fun in the process.   Read more about PGIs for literacy!
