2009 Golf Tournament Still at Par
Even Through Tough Economic Times


Despite tough economic times, the Bob A. Saldanha Memorial Golf and Wine Event to benefit Kenmore Mercy Hospital netted a record $157,000, which is the largest amount ever raised at the fundraiser, which is now in its fifth year. 

Held at Legends on the Niagara in Ontario, Canada on June 18, the tournament, which includes two 18-hole golf flights & VIP Wine Tour & Tasting, has traditionally sold out. While the number of participants remained the same as in previous years, donations increased by seven percent over the last year.

Event co-chairs Richard (Dick) Penfold, and Anne Saldanha, MD, wife of the late Robert “Bob” A. Saldanha, whom the tournament is held in honor of, along with the event committee are pleasantly surprised with the results. “We are thrilled and very touched that our wonderful community can continue to give to such levels to support Kenmore Mercy Hospital.”

The tournament was sponsored by HSBC and other sponsors including the Penfold family, Petri Baking Products, Inc., the Habib Family and the Saldanha Family. Next year’s event will be held on June 17th 2010!
