Inspired by young Ainsley
, who had part of her brain removed when she was 9 years old to save her life, Montreal’s business community showed their support once again for excellence in care at the Children’s by raising $657,885 at the 21st edition of the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation Golf Tournament at the Royal Montreal Golf Club.
This year’s edition paid tribute to the late Bruce Williams, surgeon, researcher and outstanding teacher, who was at the forefront of revolutionary changes in children’s healthcare throughout his long and distinguished career at the Children’s.

Mark Pathy, chair of the organizing committee, explains the goal of the tournament: “This annual event aims to raise funds to attract and retain talented healthcare professionals at the Children’s, a vision shared by the tournament’s founders, Dr. Bruce Williams and Hugh Hallward, who chose to invest in talent in a time when event organizers were raising funds to buy equipment."
