The Lakeshore General Hospital Foundation raises $201,000 for the Oncology Clinic Thanks to its 23rd golf tournament

Pointe-Claire (Québec)—September 27, 2021—After many months without events, the Lakeshore General Hospital Foundation is delighted to announce that the 23rd Annual Golf Tournament, held on September 23rd, raised $201,000. The funds will support upgrades to the Lakeshore General Hospital’s Oncology Clinic. Sponsored by the Desjardins Caisse de l’Ouest-de-l’Île, the event welcomed close to 240 guests who were happy to return to the championship course at the Elm Ridge Golf Club on Île-Bizard, on a beautiful sunny day.

The golfers began their day with a delicious brunch and continued to be treated with on-course culinary tastings as well as refreshments, beers and cocktails courtesy of our valued sponsors. A superb silent auction and putting contest sharpened the sporting spirit of the players. Later in the afternoon, guests enjoyed a cocktail dinatoire on the beautiful terrace to relax and network. The Foundation made every effort to offer a memorable day to all participants, in strict compliance with sanitary guidelines.
