The Golf Classic was created in 1993 under the leadership of Stephen Vineberg, President of the Centre Board, Steven Cummings, President of the Foundation and Frank Leboff, first Golf Chair. Their vision was not only to raise much needed funds for the hospital but as importantly, to celebrate the multi-cultural beauty of the hospital and the city. Over the past 25 years, this event continues to bring together people from Montreal's various communities who share the love of golf and the love of the Jewish General Hospital. We will be forever grateful to Stephen, Steven and especially Frank for pushing forward this incredible initiative.

Since its inauguration, the Golf Classic has raised over $19 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 the Late 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 and our friends from RBC.

The goal of the 2017 Golf Classic is to raise over $1 million which will once again be allocated towards the new state of the art Sandra and Steven Mintz Nephrology Centre, headed up by Drs. Mark Lipman and Gershon Frisch at the Jewish General Hospital. For more information about the cause, click here.

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 and our dynamic and ever-helpful partners at the JGH Auxiliary.
