Since its inauguration, the Golf Classic has raised over $20 million to improve the medical care, life expectancy and quality of life of the people of Montreal, Quebec and beyond. The key to this success has been the strong partnerships with Montreal's corporate and financial services communities. More specifically, it is the leadership of these communities, whose efforts will ensure an impressive outcome. Past co-chairs and honourees include such pre-eminent Quebec and Canadian personalities such as Mr. Morton Brownstein (Browns Shoes), Mr. Charles Larente (Scotia McLeod), the Broccolini Family (Broccolini Construction), the Honourable E. Leo Kolber (Claridge), Mr. Mel Ellen (G A Grier), Mr. Mark Smith (Pandion Limited), Mr. Michael Roach (CGI), Mr. Jacques Menard (BMO), the Schwartz and Segel families of Dorel, our friends from RBC and last year Claudine Blondin Bronfman, Diane Dunlop Hebert, Emmelle Segal and Lillian Vineberg.

This year the Karen and Murray Dalfen Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), under the leadership of Dr. Apostolos Papageorgiou, is the beneficiary and is counting on us for support. Join us and contribute to keeping this internationally renowned Unit at the top of its capacity to continue to deliver excellent life-saving care to thousands of premature babies.

We look forward to another wonderful day and thank the many individuals, companies and groups who will be participating by giving their time, energy and financial support to this worthwhile and highly rewarding cause. A very special thank you goes to the longstanding event host Silver Star Mercedes-Benz, the members of the Golf Classic organizing committee, our dynamic and ever-helpful partners at the JGH Auxiliary and Desjardins, this years' Lead Sponsor.
