Jonathan Drouin Golf Tournament : an incredible show of support, raising $860,000 for the CHUM

The Le Mirage Golf Club was host yesterday to the sixth-ever Jonathan Drouin Golf Tournament. The benefit was a stunning success, bringing together 250 business movers and shakers and health professionals to raise $860,000 for the CHUM—increasing the total collected since 2018 to $4 million.

“I’d like to thank all the golfers who took part in this iconic Foundation event for your generosity and commitment! The Tournament is one of the city’s hottest charity events, summer after summer. It’s become a tradition that helps us get a little bit closer to our grand dream of a healthier future.”

“This year's edition of the friendly charity competition raised three times as much money for the CHUM as the first time it was held, in September 2018. I’d like to shout out the hard work of the organizing committee and the support we received from the co-presenters, volunteers and all the partners who believe in us and in our cause. We couldn’t do it without you.”

$860,000 to push the boundaries of medicine

The money raised from benefit events like the Jonathan Drouin Golf Tournament helps the CHUM’s teams continue to push the boundaries of medicine. These funds are used to purchase cutting-edge equipment, provide ever-more advanced and patient-focused care, develop innovative research projects, attract and train the next generation of talented professionals and support all kinds of worthy initiatives.

The tournament’s participants also got to hear the moving testimony of Martin Lecomte, a CHUM patient who underwent a lung transplant at age 49.

“I got a new lease on life, and it was thanks to the CHUM teams’ expertise and good care—care that in my case was highly complex and not available anywhere else in Québec. The CHUM is the only hospital centre in the province with a lung transplant program. I now know how important donations are for developing such specialized expertise, and so I want to thank you all for being there for the CHUM.”

The Foundation celebrates 25 years of action

This year’s tournament has a special significance, as the Foundation is celebrating its 25th anniversary. For a quarter century now, our committed community have been the driving force behind one of the largest teaching hospitals in North America, empowering the CHUM to always be at the forefront of the latest breakthroughs and innovations.
