The Peter Gzowski Invitationals (PGIs) for Literacy were founded by the late Canadian broadcaster and journalist Peter Gzowski. His goals were to raise much-needed resources for the thousands of adult learners who struggle with the challenge of low literacy, and have a lot of fun in the process. Held annually in every province and territory, the PGIs have raised more than $12 million net since 1986.
