    Cheque PresentationThursday, May 30th was a terrific day in support of a great cause. SFPE-SOC members, their guests, and corporate sponsors came together to contribute to the Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Kid’s Burn Program. This year’s amount raised was $10,278.11, a new record for us. A cheque was delivered by SFPE-SOC golf committee members on August 21. The cumulative total for the past 4 years we have supported SickKids Burn Program is over $ 33,000. Our total for all charities raised for the past 22 years is over $ 104,000.

    On that day we also got together for golf, food, friendship and to catch up on each other’s activities. The venue was The Cardinal Golf Club in New Market, Ontario, about 55 km (34 miles) north of Toronto. The mostly sunny day reached a temperature of 21 °C (70 °F). At registration each player was handed a sleeve of SFPE logo imprinted balls, driving range, lunch and door prize tickets. A raffle was held for a special “Hummer” golf cart.

    The golf “shot gun” start began at 12:30 and dinner

    followed at 6:00 PM. There were 100 golf participants. Following dinner and announcements the teams were invited to select items from the prize table. The dinner and all 18 holes, putting green and driving range were sponsored by generous member and/or affiliated corporate sponsors. Some corporate sponsors and members contributed with prizes as well.

    We look forward to an even greater success next year.

    Regards,

    Mickey Milankov, Golf Committee Chair
