CAB wins big with bo­gies

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

The sec­ond annual golf tour­na­ment fundraiser for the CAB RH Rediker took place last Satur­day un­der blue skies. “Ev­ery­one had a great time and we got a lot of good feed­back. We raised $9000 last year and we should be able to give be­tween $10,000 and $11,000 this year when ev­ery­thing is fi­nal­ized,” said Robert Galazzo who or­ga­nized the tour­na­ment along with An­dré Gaulin and Arthur Lapenna. There was also a “good crew” of helpers: Giselle Galazzo, Diane Lapenna, the CAB’S Mylene Labonté and Josianne Cail­let, Denis Par­ent and Su­san Fletcher-doust who pro­moted the event in Ayer’s Cliff.

The CAB’s Lynn Wood and hus­band Wayne Smith were also a big help: they had to sit at hole # 4 and hole # 14, through­out the tour­na­ment un­der the hot sun, in case any­one got a hole-in-one. No-one did but if they would have they would have been well com­pen­sated. Camp­bell Bel­lam & As­so­ci­ates Inc. were of­fer­ing $20,000 for their hole and the Stanstead IGA was of­fer­ing $5000 in gro­ceries for the other hole.

Bob Al­ger was the lucky win­ner of a tele­vi­sion set and sev­eral other golfers won bot­tles of wine. “Ev­ery four­some got prizes, ei­ther coupons from local mer­chants or other prizes,” said Mr. Galazzo. Local busi­nesses were gen­er­ous again this year. Many local com­pa­nies spon­sored the event, in­clud­ing GranQuartz, Camp­bell & Bel­lam, the Stanstead IGA, the Caisse Des­jardins de Stanstead and The Stanstead Jour­nal, along with the Town of Ayer’s Cliff and Group In­vestors, of Sher­brooke. “We had many smaller com­pa­nies also spon­sor­ing, there were about thirty in all,” he added.

“It was a nice and friendly tour­na­ment. Em­cee Ed­die Pomykala was very en­ter­tain­ing and the me­choui din­ner was well-at­tended. Ev­ery­one did a bang-up job of set­ting ev­ery­thing up. I’m sure we’ll match last year’s amount; Stanstead takes care of their own!” said the direc­tor of the CAB RH Rediker, Mylene LaBonté.
