The 12th Annual Hospital Summer Golf Classic was a great success, raising $63,837 to purchase medical equipment for Almonte General Hospital and Fairview Manor (AGH/FVM).

The tournament, which took place June 20 at the Canadian Golf & Country Club, hosted 216 golfers.

“We would like to thank Ross Murray and Diane James of Rexall, who contributed $12,000 as our Platinum Corporate Sponsor, and President Sharon Libby and the Almonte Civitan Club for its $10,000 donation as Platinum Community Sponsor,” said AGH/FVM Foundation Executive Director Gerry Huddleston. “We would also like to thank our other sponsors, auction item donors and our army of volunteers.”

Special thanks also go to Golf Committee Chair Guido Patrice and volunteer Bert McIntyre, who has been a volunteer and golfer in all 12 tournaments. Over 12 years, the tournament has raised more than $800,000.

Upcoming Foundation events include the August 27 Women’s Golf Classic and the September 6 Mississippi River Run, which is sponsored by Tom Lam and Shopper’s Drug Mart.
