Southeast Georgian Bay Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament Raises $43k for Local Charities
The Southeast Georgian Bay Chamber of Commerce (SEGBAY), in partnership with 104.1
The DOCK and KICX 106, hosted its 4th annual golf tournament, in tribute to Paul
Herriott who was a driving force behind the Chamber’s largest fundraiser.
The golf tournament raised $43,000, with $30,000 dedicated to the renovations of patient rooms at the Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH) and $13,000 for the seniors’ residence at Wendat in Penetanguishene.
Fred Wareing, Chair of the Golf Tournament Committee, stated: “It was an exceptional day. We had the
largest ever turn-out with 160 golfers on the course, followed by a fantastic dinner, fabulous auction,
silent auction, and raffle. The weather couldn’t have been better, and the whole day went relatively
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. Our sincere thanks
to a strong committee and a great group of volunteers and to an extraordinarily dedicated Bonaire staff.
Paul Herriott would have been so pleased that the golf teams, sponsors and friends so enthusiastically
supported these great causes.”
We thank our many sponsors, who will be listed on our website in the next few weeks. This tournament
couldn’t have been accomplished without the hard work of so many: the staff at Bonaire, the Golf
Tournament Committee, the volunteers, the enthusiastic golfers, businesses and individuals.
