JFK SUPPORTERS GOLF AND CYCLE: Over 200 of Montreal’s business and community-minded golfers and cyclists enjoyed the Just for Kids (JFK) Foundation’s annual Golf Tournament and Cycling Tour recently at Golf Le Mirage in Terrebonne. The course was filled with indulgent treats including poutine, meatballs, hamburgers, hot dogs and donated delights from Freshii and Taste Italy. Cyclists pedaled through one of three routes and were offered healthy snacks along the way then gave their bodies a well-deserved break with massages upon their arrival back at the clubhouse. Cyclists and golfers reunited for a cocktail that was kicked off with a scotch tasting generously donated by Beam Suntory.
