21st Annual Golf Tournament of the Foundation of the Women’s Centre of Montréal
This year’s annual golf tournament took place on Monday, September 12, 2016 at the Country Club of Montreal in Saint Lambert. The participants enjoyed ideal weather as they played their round in support of the Women’s Centre of Montreal.
Thanks to the general enthusiasm of all involved, the trust of our sponsors, the active participation of our ambassadors and patrons, as well as the drive and energy of the President of Honour, Mrs. Anne No Delaide, Vice President at RBC Royal Bank, we were able to collect $46,000 in net proceeds.
The evening was hosted by Mrs. Karen Torgerson who volunteered her time and talent, and kept the audience on the edge of its seat when it came time to draw prizes! The coveted grand prize consisted of four platinum tickets for an evening at the 2017 Roger’s Cup in Montreal, valued at $1200, graciously offered by Tennis Canada.
During her speech, President of Honour Mrs. Anne No Delaide, RBC Royal Bank’s Vice President of Knowledge-Based Industries, IT Media & Lifescience , Commercial Financial Services, highlighted the dedication of the employees at the Women’s Centre of Montreal, and reminded us that she was first introduced to the centre through an activity called « Suited for a cause ». In collaboration with Richter and BCF corporate lawyers, this activity provides clothing to women who participate in our employability service so they can dress appropriately for their job interviews.
Executive director Mrs. Johanne Bélisle delivered a poignant testimonial about the hopes and dreams of the women who come in for help, and expressed her gratitude for those who offer their support to the Women’s Centre of Montreal. In keeping with the motto of the Women’s Centre of Montreal, Mrs. Bélisle closed the evening with the words: “Thank-you for helping us help women help themselves”.
On behalf of the board members of the Centre and Foundation, as well as the Centre’s entire team of workers and volunteers, from the bottom of our hearts, THANK-YOU!
