Annual Golf tournament - $14,000 raised!
Montreal, June 10, 2016. – Corbeil Appliances, in association with the network of Quebec youth and family centres, held its sixth annual golf tournament on June 3rd, 2016.
All profits from the charity tournament are redistributed to young people in the form of household appliances, which we give them when they leave their youth centres or foster families. It’s a donation that gives our young people a fresh start.
Employees, suppliers, volunteers and Mr. Yves Corbeil himself were on hand to show their support for the cause.
Corbeil is proud to be the organizer of the tournament, which, year after year, lends young people a helping hand. This year the event raised $14,000. Corbeil would like to thank all the people who went above and beyond the call of duty to raise money for the network of Quebec youth and family centres. Thanks to them, over $75,000 has been raised since the first tournament in 2011.
