The Lakeshore General Hospital Foundation recently announced that the 22nd edition of its Annual Golf Tournament, held on June 3, has raised over $150,000, which will be going towards enhancing the quality of care offered at the Lakeshore General Hospital. Presented by RBC Wealth Management and sponsored by Desjardins, Air Canada Rouge, the Tenaquip Foundation, Montreal Airport Marriott In-Terminal Hotel and CN, the event welcomed close to 200 guests who had a great time completing the superb championship course of the Elm Ridge Country Club in Île-Bizard, despite the winter-type weather.

Golfers started their day with a brunch and continued enjoying mouth-watering hors d’oeuvres throughout the day, as well as refreshments, beer and cocktails offered on course by 4 Origins Brewing Co., 40 Westt, Aqua Spa Lyne Giroux, Bâton Rouge D.D.O., Montreal Airport Marriott In-Terminal Hotel and Monza. After the tournament, guests relaxed and networked during the cocktail hour, followed by a gourmet meal and a silent auction.

“It is always a great pleasure for me to see our guests having so much fun at our Annual Golf Tournament, and I am extremely grateful for their support towards our cause,” says Heather Holmes, Executive Director of the Lakeshore General Hospital Foundation. “The participation and generosity of our guests and sponsors make this event a great success, enabling us to raise funds so that our community hospital can continuously improve the quality of health care provided to members of the West Island community.”

Founded in 1964, the Foundation’s mandate is to collect the necessary funds to improve patient care at the Lakeshore General Hospital. In this way, it contributes to the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment, major structural renovations, and assists in supporting programs and specialized training for the professional staff, providing funding to initiatives not supported by the government.
