Golf raises $11,000 for CAB

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

TheCAB RH Rediker’s ma­jor fundraiser, the golf tour­na­ment which took place last Satur­day at the Duf­ferin Heights Golf Club, gets bet­ter ev­ery year, this time rais­ing $11,000 for the com­mu­nity or­ga­ni­za­tion that pro­vides im­por­tant ser­vices to peo­ple of all ages. There were thirty four­somes for the tour­na­ment and about 140 peo­ple at­tended the me­choui sup­per.

“We’re grate­ful to all the spon­sors and par­tic­i­pants who have re­turned ev­ery year. The Three Vil­lages aren’t that big so we have to keep ask­ing the same peo­ple for sup­port,” ex­plained Robert Galazzo who or­ga­nizes the event along with An­dre Gaulin and Arthur LaPenna.

“I’d like to thank Brian Car­ruthers of Camp­bell & Bel­lam for spon­sor­ing hole # 4 for $20,000 and the An­dré Roy IGA for spon­sor­ing hole # 14 and pro­vid­ing fruit and snacks for the golfers. I’d also like to thank our main or­ga­niz­ers: Arthur and Diane LaPenna, Gisele Galazzo, An­dre

Gaulin, My­lene LaBonté, Josianne Cail­let, Lynn Wood, Wayne Smith, Linda Durocher and Denis Par­ent,” said Mr. Galazzo.

The CAB RH Rediker’s di­rec­tor, My­lene LaBonté, was thrilled with this year’s re­sults. “I’d like to say a great big thank-you to the or­ga­niz­ers. They work re­ally hard on this, go­ing out into the field look­ing for spon­sors and do­na­tions. All the peo­ple in place who or­ga­nize this event have dif­fer­ent ar­eas of ex­per­tise, which are put to use, and that seems to ben­e­fit the whole fundraiser. We’re lucky that they found us,” she said, add- ing: “The weather was great, the me­choui was great, and the site and the staff of the Duf­ferin Heights club are ex­cel­lent.”

Al­though the CAB RH Rediker of­fers ser­vices right across the board, it only re­ceives a few govern­ment sub­si­dies. It also goes af­ter smaller grants from com­mu­nity or­ga­ni­za­tions such as the Til­lot­son Re­gional Coat­i­cook Fund which re­cently gave them money to buy a de­fib­ril­la­tor and new ex­er­cise mats. Fundraisers such as the golf tour­na­ment are cru­cial to its op­er­a­tions.

Some of the spe­cial prize and draw­ing win­ners were: the four­some of Denis Par­ent, Alain Gre­nier, Dex­ter Wing and Brian Car­ruthers won the draw­ing from among the top teams, while the Gae­tan Rouleau team won the draw­ing from among those teams with the most ‘hon­est’ score. Nor­mand Geli­nas re­ceived a nice prize for land­ing a ball “clos­est to the pin”. Emilia Stone was the lucky win­ner of a 40 inch TV from Brunelle Elec­tron­ique, in Coat­i­cook. Or­ga­nizer An­dré Gaulin was lucky enough to win a $100 cer­tifi­cate from the East­side Restau­rant, in New­port.
