The Children’s Foundation raises $1,000,695 at its 26th annual Golf Tournament
Generous members of Montreal’s business community hit the links at the 26th annual Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation Golf Tournament held on September 12, 2022.
With the help of an incredible organizing committee, including President of Honour Mitch Garber C.M., the Tournament raised an amazing $1,000,695 in support of The Children's young patients.
“The MCHF Golf Tournament is the social event of the summer. Participants tee off at the prestigious Royal Montreal Golf Club; network on the course and over cocktails and dinner; and, most importantly, raise funds that improve the lives of thousands of seriously sick children in Quebec each year,” said Charles-Edouard Morin, organizing committee chairman. “Since its founding in 1997, the tournament has raised $16,712,788, making it one of the Foundation's top flagship charity events.”
"I have been fortunate. My children, apart from a few broken bones, have been spared the need for critical care at The Children's. Many of our friends have not been as lucky. We are one family. Whether we have children or not, Montrealers take care of each other. I have had the privilege of chairing a number of campaigns and supporting many important causes, but the Hospital holds a special place in my heart. By taking part in the Tournament, the golfers are helping Montreal’s sick children, particularly those that require critical and chronic care, return to their energetic selves. Thanks to everyone for their generosity,” said Mitch Garber, C.M., and President of Honour of the 2022 tournament.
All proceeds from the Tournament help finance fellowships for physicians who wish to develop expertise in surgical subspecialties under the tutelage of The Children’s renowned surgical team. Fellowships also allow the Hospital to recruit the best and brightest physicians worldwide. In addition, this year's tournament will also help support a patient navigation program or ‘Corridor of Care’ to improve care coordination, patient education, and access to community resources. The Children's Corridor of Care is being developed using evidence-based best practices, and it serves as a template for other pediatric centres in Canada and beyond.
“On behalf of the children and families who rely on the Hospital for care, I sincerely thank Mitch Garber, Charles-Edouard Morin and the entire organizing committee. Putting this tournament together is a monumental task, and your commitment to The Children’s is invaluable,” said Renée Vézina, President of The Children’s Foundation. “I also thank our sponsors whose generous contributions made this event possible. And a big thank you to the golfers for their support. You are helping sick children become healthy again and maybe even return to being a little bratty. Because we all know a bratty kid is a healthy kid.”
