Welcome to the Taber Family Foundation

About Us

 The Taber Family Foundation is a Not for Profit organization that consists of the family and friends of Geoff Taber, Jacquie Gardner, Scott Taber and Andrew Taber.   The Taber family, long time residents of Toronto's Riverdale neighbourhood, perished tragically in a cottage fire on December 24, 2016.   


The Withrow Project

The Taber family spent many hours at Withrow Park with their dogs in the dog park and at the rink skating and playing ball hockey.   The Withrow Project was developed to help commemorate the Taber Family at a place that they loved.   

The Withrow Project objective is to contribute towards the reconstruction of the Withrow Park rink, delivering the most outstanding outdoor ball hockey venue in Canada.    


The plan is use the funds raised for a permanent score clock and seating on the hill - both commemorations would be enjoyed by families for decades.   

The Withrow Project 2017 premiere event will take place on Sunday May 28th at Withrow Park.
