Golf Tournament Raises $30,000 for Georgian Bay General Hospital
PORT SEVERN – The Southeast Georgian Bay Chamber of Commerce (SEGBAY), in
partnership with 104.1 The DOCK and KICX 106, hosted its first annual golf tournament
for the Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH). This upscale event was a huge success,
raising in excess of $30,000. The tournament took place at Bonaire Golf and Country Club
in Coldwater on August 12, 2014.
Fred Wareing, Chair of the Golf Tournament Committee, stated: “It was a fun day. We had
143 golfers on the course, followed by a fantastic dinner, fabulous auction, silent auction,
and raffle, with all the proceeds going towards a new state-of-the-art acute care treatment
room at the Georgian Bay General Hospital. The rain held off just long enough to make for
an enjoyable game! It was great to see an additional fifteen supporters join the group for
the dinner and evening festivities.”
Wareing went on to say: “The success of this event was possible because of the
generosity of our Title Sponsors, Newmarket-Tay Hydro and Morgan Investments, as well
as a large group of other sponsors. The golfers and other diners also opened their wallets
during the auctions and raffle. Thanks to a strong committee and a great group of volunteers
this first time event was pretty well organized. Hats off to an extraordinarily dedicated
All the sponsors will be recognized on a “wall of fame” at the hospital, as well as on
websites and Facebook pages belonging to KICX 106, The DOCK, the GBGH
Foundation and SEGBAY.
SEGBAY, KICX106 and The DOCK 104.1 are committed to this event again in 2015. It will
take place at Bonaire Golf and Country Club on Tuesday August 11, 2015.
The Southeast Georgian Bay Chamber of Commerce wishes to thank everyone for
making this first tournament a tremendous success! The commitment to raise funds
for the hospital is well underway, and the event partners look forward to another great
tournament next year.
