Cardiac Classic Golf Tournament 2009

The Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada held its 9th annual Classic Golf Tournament on Wednesday August 5th at the Cardinal Golf Club in Newmarket. It was a great day with terrific weather, both sunny skies and comfortable temperatures. We had the luxury of having approximately 140 golfers participating as well as enjoying a great dinner, raffle prizes and a live auction.

The volunteers that helped make this a success were Christina Zaharia, Terry and Roger Lefebvre, Sharon Upton and Amanda Carlyle. The volunteers were headed up by Christina Mellos of the foundation. Without her support and organizational skills, this tournament would not have run as smooth as it did. Many thanks to Christina and her volunteers.

The Golf Committee consisted of Stephen Upton and David Lefevre who co-chaired the event, Elio Zoffranieri, and Silvana Herskowitz.

We extend our sincere gratitude to the many sponsors of this tournament. Their support is essential in order to raise funds for cardiac rehabilitation programs, facilities, medical equipment, research scholarships and professional and public awareness programs across Canada.

Once again thank you to all those who supported and volunteered this event.
