The 1st Annual Golf Tournament was a great success for Stopconcussions and all those involved. Together with our lead sponsors, Source For Sports, The Hockey News, Haggar, Right Wing, Shift Concussion Management and the many others our team raised well over $7000.00 for the cause, while having great fun golfing.
Stopconcussions’ day started very early preparing the Royal Woodbine Golf Course for the many guests and competitors. After receiving a lunch and gift bag, Kerry Goulet gave a short speech introducing the sponsors and the reason we had all gathered. He was also joined by Keith and Wayne Primeau, Zenon Konopka, Vic Hadfield and Ron Ellis for their contribution to the organization.
The Tournament ended late in the day, concluding with a fantastic dinner and auction from the great Jack Valiquette. Everyone was very entertained listening to the rising bids for a signed Sidney Crosby portrait and official Penguins Jersey, as well as another painting featuring a fabulous action shot of past hockey greats. After-words, guests were able to bid on other goods with a silent auction.
However, the most poignant moment of the Tournament and dinner came from a speech from Christine Fraser. She is a mother who saw her son Nathan suffer a life-changing concussion. Mrs. Fraser publically spoke to the guests about the memory loss, sensitivity to light and sound, and the trouble academically that has resulted from this injury. It certainly reminded everyone in the room what this day was truly about, especially when a family is faced with this injury.
Stopconcussions would also like to thank Adam Bennett, Billy Derlago, Dalton Smith, Derrick Smith, Gary Leeman, Lou Franceschetti, Todd Warriner, Vic Hadfield, as well as all of our sponsors who have helped us with this cause. We would not have been able to do this without the support from individuals and all of our sponsors.
