The EMSB held its fifth annual Scholarship Fund Golf Tournament on June 27 at Club de Golf St. Raphaël in Île Bizard. Montreal Impact president and noted businessman Joey Saputo served as the honourary chairman. A record number of 240 golfers helped raise a tournament high of more than $40,000. Proceeds will go towards the EMSB Scholarship Program, which benefits a number of graduating EMSB students so that they can pursue their post secondary studies at a CEGEP or in vocational education. Besides 18 holes of golf, there was a brunch, dinner, plenty of fabulous door prizes (a fur lined coat, golf clubs, a Montreal Impact signed and framed jersey, a Dell laptop computer, an IMAC computer, a weekend in St. Adolphe and jewelry) plus prizes for longest drive and closest to pin. There was no hole-in-one recorded during the day. Participants made valiant attempts at the 18th hole, where an automobile from Saturn Mondial was up for grabs. The organizing committee for the tournament was chaired by Mario Tirelli, deputy director general and ably assisted by his predecessor Donald A. Reid. At the awards banquet, Mr. Tirelli and Mr. Reid thanked Mother Nature for delivering five consecutive years of sunny skies for the tournament.
