The 23rd Children's Golf Tournament: A True Success!
The 23rd edition of the Montreal Children's Hospital Foundation Golf tournament raised $600,000 to fund fellowships in pediatric surgery – the true cornerstones of learning at a teaching hospital. These give the Children’s patients access to an international pool of extraordinary medical talent.
180 players enjoyed perfect weather for a fun day at the legendary Royal Montreal Golf Club. In the evening, cocktail, dinner and an auction were on order. Dr. Hussein Wissanji, a surgical fellow at the Children’s and player in this year’s tournament, personally thanked all those present for their generosity. Congratulations to the Bitumar team, who played remarkably and brought home this year’s trophy!
We want to extend a special thank you to grateful parents, Rachel and James, for sharing their son Leroy’s journey at the Children’s with everyone present. Thank you to our Lead Partner, RBC, our Platinum Partners, FedNav, Mavrik Corp., and NovaSteel, our Gold Sponsors, Pembroke and Pipe & Piling Supplies Ltd, as well as all our sponsors, foursomes, auction partners, donors, and players who contributed to the success of our tournament.
In the late evening, we proceeded to draw the pair of hockey season tickets for 2019-2020. The winner is Bill Kyres - ticket 0257. Thank you to all who participated in the draw.
