The Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence Foundation Golf Tournament was held on May 30th with more than 150 guests; it raised $45,423. The 2016 edition, presented by the National Bank and co-chaired by Jonathan Chbat and Ann Zakhary of Pharmacie Jean Coutu, avenue Saint-Charles, proposed a poker-run formula at the Whitlock Golf and Country Club, one of the finest golf courses in the area. This new formula allowed golfers to take part in contests along the way to complete their hand and have a chance to win a dinner-and-show evening at the Casino de Montréal. Charles Éthier won the Best Poker Hand prize during the golf tournament which was supported by Services de rebuts Soulanges, Régate Kia Valleyfield, Prod Doc and CUBiX.

Eleven local companies and restaurants participated in the tournament to support this great cause and offered golfers an unforgettable culinary experience during the BBQ, on the green and during the dinner at the end of the day. The Silent Auction featured almost 70 items including autographed sporting goods, jewelry, gift certificates for restaurants, collectors’ wine bottles, works of art and many more. The Foundation wishes to thank the 13 new ambassadors as well as all the participants, its generous sponsors, as well as the Residence’s employees and volunteers without whom this event would not be possible.
