Over last ten years, the Residence’s golf tournament has established itself as one of its main event and has raised a total of close $2.5 million ensuring patients live the final chapter of their lives in the best and most fulfilling manner possible, with dignity and at peace.

As Dale Weil, Executive Director of the West Island Palliative Care Residence said following the announcement of the results: “We are blessed with the outpouring of support from the community, especially during these difficult times. There truly is no greater gift than assuring someone’s care as they are dying. Our patients are living their last days with dignity, surrounded by love, compassion, family and friends, because of the support we receive from the community.“

The Residence receives one-third of its operational budget from the Quebec government and relies on community support and fundraising activities to raise the balance of more than 3,8 million dollars.
