OSHOF was founded to provide a place that will serve as a site of homage for Oakville’s outstanding athletes, builders and founders who have distinguished themselves through their contributions to sports.

Also, OSHOF will provide financial assistance to Oakville athletes through scholarship grants.

Funds raised by the dinner will sustain the Hall of Fame and support its scholarship, bursary and athletic assistance program.
