On Monday, August 7th, the Missing Children’s Network held its 11th Golf Classic on the pristine greens of Hillsdale Golf & Country Club. This year, we had the pleasure of welcoming Mr. Tony Loffreda, Vice-Chairman of RBC Wealth Management as Honourary President of our Annual Golf Classic.
We could not have asked for a more parfect day! From tee-off to the 19th hole, 122 golfers enjoyed a fun-filled day that included a barbecue lunch graciously provided by Les Aliments M & M and Expresco, a mouthwatering pasta station served by Embassy Plaza-Groupe PMG and exotic cocktails concocted by El Tinieblo. Of course, no golf tournament would be complete without beer! La Cage – Brasserie Sportive Vaudreuil-Dorion ensured that our golfers’ thirst was quenched throughout the day!
Once again, golfers were given the opportunity to beat our Celebrity Pro, none other than crowd favourite, Gilbert Delorme! Long-time friend and supporter of the organization, Jean-François Guérin, emceed our evening and reminded guests of the importance of an organization such as the Missing Children’s Network that has been supporting families of missing children for over 32 years.
An elegant silent and live auction also took place and up for grabs was a myriad of fabulous prizes that featured tickets to sporting and cultural events, custom-designed jewelry, exquisite gift baskets, a trip to Western Canada with overnight stays at the Fairmont Lake Louise and Fairmount Banff Springs and a spectacular outdoor kitchen and barbecue station!
We are very grateful to all our corporate partners and guests whose generous participation contributed to the huge success of this annual event. Thanks to you, our 11th Annual Golf Classic raised well over $95,500! These funds will help us support dozens of families in the coming year. As well, thousands of children will receive educational instruction that will help them develop sound safety strategies. We can all take pride in knowing that we are contributing to reuniting families and building safer communities for our children.
