For the Canadiens family, the annual golf tournament is an opportunity to mingle with its partners and contributors, to fraternize with clients and friends of the club and all together, have some fun before the season starts. But it is also a major fundraising event for the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation that generates significant revenue that enables it to achieve goals and continue to meet the growing demands of support. Since 2000, when the Foundation was created, more than $4 million has been raised during this tournament. Thanks to the generosity of partners and participants, hundreds of organizations and thousands of children benefit from it.
The 40th edition of the tournament
On September 10, 2015, the weather was nice at the Club de golf Laval-sur-le-Lac for the annual golf tournament. The 40th edition raised $518,000. The success of this event is the result of collaboration and exemplary support of partners, donors, members of the organization and volunteers.
