The Osprey Links Charity Golf Gala, presented by OneLife Wealth Management, raised $34,500 for the Cancer Care, Close to Home campaign. Over the past 22 years this tournament has raised more than $400,000 toward our community’s greatest medical equipment needs at the North Bay Regional Health Centre.

Platinum sponsor, OneLife Weatlh Management’s Sylvain Côté and Shawn Flindall helped launch the tournament. “Our hospital takes care of us when we need it and it keeps us safe especially during these unsual times. Our vision, values and commitment is to our community; families and businesses. We feel fortunate to be here today to demonstrate our commitment and support and are honoured to do our part to inspire others,” they added.

Honorary Tournament Co-Chair, Michael Harris, former Premier of Ontario, opened the tournament with a ceremony on the putting green. “Under the most unusual circumstances of a pandemic, we are reminded of the incredible importance of our hospital, healthcare workers and frontline workers. This year’s tournament may look and feel a little different than year’s past, but one thing remains constant, we are proud to be supporting our hospital and the care of the people in our community.

Barbara Minogue, thanked the participants for supporting the tournament and for continuing the longstanding tradition of friendship, comraderie and a round of golf for a community cause. “My late husband Peter and I found great satisfaction in rallying our commuity for impactful charities that serve our friends, families and loved ones. Our hospital has always been one of our top priorities,’ she shared.

In January, the Cancer Care, Close to Home campaign celebrated its victory, raising $6.3M. “We are grateful for the community leaders who championed this campaign and for the donors who are giving so generously so that we can provide the best possible patient care locally.” said Paul Heinrich, President and CEO of NBRHC.

Tammy Morison, President & CEO, NBRHC Foundation thanked the golfers, sponsors and volunteers who made the tournament a success during untraditional circumstances. “We are thankful that so many of our loyal participants were able to join us for the tournament – at a safe distance. Healthcare is truly a partnership between the government, hospital and community. Together we can ensure our community has access to advanced medical equipment and the care they need,” said Morison.
