Gilles-Barbeau GOLF Tournament for CAH

Gilles-Barbeau golf tournament cancelled for CAH 2021

It was with a heavy heart that we cancelled our tournament scheduled for September 2020. We unfortunately chose to cancel our 2021 tournament as well, to stay safe.

In 2019, the Gilles-Barbeau Golf Tournament for CAH was in its 10th year. Our golf tournament has been the annual social event for Francophones and Francophiles in support of CAH for 10 years! During the Gilles-Barbeau Golf Tournament for CAH 2019, the community demonstrated that it cared about the well-being of Francophone seniors. Funds of $19,235 were raised… to which we will add the $200 raised when we extended online the Silent Auction for a few more weeks.

Each year, CAH calls on you, the community, to solicit your financial support to help francophone seniors in need in Toronto. For the 10th edition, we had bigger ambitions; to raise $30,000 for the purchase of a new van for the transportation and safety of our senior clients, including social and recreational outings that break the isolation. And you know what? We reached our target!

For those who wonder who was Gilles Barbeau, read this superb article (in French) by Paul-François Sylvestre in L’Express, summarizing the life of this generous man, who deserved to have his name given to a tournament for the benefit of Francophone seniors!

31 sponsors and more than 50 donors in 2019

In 2019, the golf organizing committee encouraged the generosity of 31 sponsors and more than 50 donors in cash or in kind, not to mention many dynamic volunteers. Their donations and sponsorships will allow CAH to subsidize community meals (to reduce the isolation of seniors), transportation for some of its Adult Day Program clients (to provide respite for their caregivers), and supplies for CAH programs (to preserve the autonomy of its clients at risk).
