Records Are Meant To Be Broken

Jul 21, 2015

On July 20, 2015, it was truly a perfect day on the fairways ... sunshine, fun, frivolity and philanthropy were in abundance. Providence Healthcare Foundation is pleased to announce the success of the 21st annual Ken & Nancy Shaw Providence Golf Classic, where we raised a record breaking $186,000 (net) for the areas of most urgent need at Providence Healthcare! We are so grateful to all of our generous sponsors, donors, and supporters, who provide the generous donations in support of Providence's legacy of exceptional care long into the future.

Coppinwood Golf Club was once again a golfer's paradise! With 144 golfers ... some newbies, some pros ... but all friends of Providence ... it was the perfect day on the greens to experience the true spirit of sportsmanship and philanthropy. We thank our golfers for the fun-filled memories, excitement and above all, the generosity and support of an exceptional cause: the patients, residents and clients we are privileged to serve at Providence Healthcare.

Some of the day's highlights include:

  • Generous sponsors, donors and volunteers who came together for Providence to make our tournament simply unforgettable;
  • Congratulations to Dan Noonan, Dave Garland, Brian Galley and Rod Morton - champions of the 2015 Providence Golf Classic;
  • An amazing selection of items in our live and silent auction, as well as our incredible equipment auction, raising a combined total of over $29,000;
  • A camel from the Bowmanville Zoo ... braveley ridden by Jennifer Stewart, President and CEO of Providence Healthcare Foundation;
  • NHL Legends, Johnny Bower and Dick Duff, came out to show their support;
  • Fun and exciting hole activities with incredible prizes; and
  • Special treats along the course that included: Miller Lite Beer, delicious mini corn dogs from All on Board – Summer Thyme Bites, cookies from Kake Kreations, a mojito station, beef slider station and fish taco station.
