Distribution Régitan Ltd.—a Montreal-based, independent, full-service food distributor with more than 100 employees—has remained a family business for over 90 years, enjoying rapid growth thanks to the family values instilled by its President, Mark Tobenstein.
“My wife, Dawn, who is also Mark and Marim Tobenstein's daughter, was treated at the JGH," says Mitchell Weitzman, Vice-President of Operations. “Our family really appreciated the expertise and excellent care provided by the JGH." From that point on, the company made the JGH Foundation a recipient of part of the proceeds from its annual customer and supplier appreciation golf tournament. Driven by the dedication and commitment of Mitchell Weitzman, along with brother-in-law Stéphane Bouchard, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing, and Eric Dufault, Director of Purchasing, the event raised a total of $27,500 in support of the JGH Department of Oncology and the Segal Cancer Centre during the past three years.
“It is a great pleasure to give back to the hospital that did so much for our family and we intend to continue to raise funds in support of the JGH so that other families can benefit from the same high level of care well into the future," says Mitchell Weitzman.
The JGH Foundation is proud to partner with Distribution Régitan Ltd. in empowering the JGH to deliver excellence and ensuring a healthy future for all Quebecers.
