The 29th edition of the Fondation Hôpital Saint-Eustache (FHSE) Golf Master, held on Tuesday September 5th at the prestigious Le Mirage Golf Club, raised an unprecedented $117,852 in net proceeds, almost $25,000 more than the last edition! Donations raised during the event will help the FHSE improve local healthcare in the Lower Laurentians and to acquire state-of-the-art equipment for the Hôpital de Saint-Eustache.

The tournament, presented by National Bank, was once again a resounding success this year. A total of 168 golfers from the business community of the Lower Laurentians took part in the Fondation’s most important fundraising event under the theme: “A SHOT at making a difference in your community! ” Participants enjoyed a beautiful (and very hot) day under the sun on the Carolina course with great food and refreshments on 16 of the 18 holes, thanks to the generosity of our partners! The golf day ended with a cocktail on the terrace and a lovely dinner, along with silent and live auctions.

The Chairman of the FHSE Board of Directors, Pierre Mayer, Senior Associate Lawyer at Trivium Avocats-Notaires-Conseils, was delighted that so many people showed their support: “The loyalty of participants and partners is extraordinary. I would like to extend my gratitude to the Fondation’s team, the organizing committee, and our wonderful volunteers. Thank you for believing in the Fondation’s mission and for supporting it through initiatives like this one.” General Manager Lyne Des Trois Maisons was visibly moved by the record amount raised, by the turnout and by the involvement of the many volunteers. She said: “What an incredible day, and the generosity of the participants, partners and volunteers overwhelmed me. I still can’t believe it! Thank you, 117,852 times! See you next year for the 30th anniversary – thirty years is worth celebrating!”
