On Thursday, August 13, the entire staff of Markham Stouffville Hospital (MSH) was treated to a delicious packed lunch courtesy of Kylemore Kares Annual Charity Golf Tournament. Angus Glen Golf Club prepared and delivered 1200 lunches on behalf of Kylemore.
“Every year the proceeds from the annual golf tournament are donated to charities. This year we wanted to say a special Thank You to frontline workers for going above and beyond the call of duty during these unprecedented times. We reached out to our local hospital to make the arrangements,” said Cailey Stollery, CEO Angus Glen and Kylemore Group of Companies.
2020 marks the thirteenth consecutive year the invitational tournament has been held at Angus Glen Golf Club. “We weren’t sure we would be permitted to go ahead, even if we had the support of our trades, suppliers and consultants. However, when the Province announced golf could resume, we called some of our contacts and found that they were eager to participate,” explained Frank Spaziani, Vice-President of Kylemore. “From there the Kylemore team together with the golf club worked tirelessly to ensure all health and safety precautions were met,” he added.
