Quebec,” says Deep Khosla, Co-Head of Canadian Corporate and Investment Banking, Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Honorary President of the 2021 Golf Tournament. “I have benefited from amazing healthcare in Montreal. However, I can honestly say being diagnosed and treated was a very scary experience – and I was an adult.  I can only imagine how terrifying it must be for children and their parents. I readily accepted to be the Honorary President this year because I know the critical difference fundraising makes in the quality of care the young patients at The Children’s receive. One key difference between a great hospital and one that is world class is the support of generous donors.”    

Held at the prestigious Royal Montreal Golf Club, the tournament is one of the business community’s most popular philanthropic traditions. All players had to present their vaccination passport.

The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation President, Renée Vézina, offers her sincere thanks to Deep Khosla, Mark Pathy, the entire organizing committee, the anonymous donor, and members of Quebec’s business community, most especially the tournament’s platinum partners: The Aune Foundation, Nova Steel, and Starlight Investments; gold partners: ALDO, Fednav, Mavrik Corp, Pembroke Private Wealth Management, Pipe & Piling Supplies Ltd, and Rogers Communications. “The raison d’être of The Montreal Children’s Hospital is to ensure children can get back their natural energy and return to their mischievous selves. For 25 years, this tournament has stood out because its goal is to raise funds for training opportunities so The Children’s can attract the most talented medical students and health professionals. On behalf of our kids and their families, we are so incredibly grateful for the support of everyone involved.”
