Tournament chair Abbas Homayed said he was happy with the results. “We received a lot of positive feedback today and I am pleased that everyone had a good time. More importantly, I’m happy that the monies we raised will remain in the community to support those receiving treatment in our world-class facility.”
This years’ event drew many community partners, including Vale, Northern Life, KGHM International, Milman Industries and Day Group and hosted more than 120 golfers at Timberwolf Golf Club. Over its 17-year history the event has raised close to $700,000 for patients and their families seeking cancer treatment throughout northeastern Ontario.
As always, participants also had an opportunity to meet some of the student researchers who were on hand volunteering at the various holes throughout the course. Their studies often benefit from the fundraising dollars raised by the NCF.
“Today we had some new faces join us, as well as those who have been with us since the beginning,” Tannys Laughren, executive director of the NCF, said. “We are happy to host them all and proud to share how their support is making a real difference to cancer patients in northeastern Ontario.”
