Sold out fast

Yes­ter­day, CAB RH Rediker di­rec­tor My­lene LaBonté was thrilled to re­ceive the $9000 cheque from the or­ga­niz­ers of the first an­nual CAB golf tour­na­ment, held on June 17th at the Duf­ferin Heights Golf Club. “We don’t tra­di­tion­ally do fundrais­ing events at the CAB but we’re very happy with the re­sults of this tour­na­ment. It will al­low us to im­prove ser­vices to the com­mu­nity or per­haps in­vest in the in­fra­struc­ture at the cen­tre. There is a greater de­mand for Meals on Wheels and we have a great need of a more efficient work space for that ser­vice,” com­mented Ms. LaBonté.

“Our tick­ets were sold out ten or twelve days af­ter we an­nounced the tour­na­ment,” said Robert Galazzo who or­ga­nized it along with fel­low golfers Robert Bilodeau, An­dré Gaulin, Gisele Galazzo and De­nis Par­ent. Ms. LaBonté and Josianne Cail­let, of the CAB, also helped in the or­ga­ni­za­tion of the pop­u­lar event. “We had thirty-two four­somes for the golf tour­na­ment and one hun­dred and forty-eight for the me­choui din­ner. We couldn’t have served any more peo­ple than that,” ex­plained Mr. Galazzo.

Spe­cial prizes were won by the fol­low­ing golfers dur­ing the tour­na­ment: Nancy Lay­ton for the ‘clos­est to the pin on the 7th hole’; and Alain Gre­nier won the putting con­test. No­body was lucky enough to win the $5000 prize by the Stanstead IGA for a hole in one on the 14th hole. Bet­ter luck next time!

“We hope to re­peat the event next year and I’d like to thank all the par­tic­i­pants, all of the spon­sors, and vol­un­teers Wayne Smith, Lynn Wood and Linda Durocher who also helped,” con­cluded Mr. Galazzo.
