Menkes’ 19th Annual Golf Classic Raises Funds for Three Toronto Hospitals
Menkes hosted their annual 19th Charity Golf Classic at the Lionhead Golf Club in Mississauga on Thursday September 7th, 2017. The tournament, attended by family, friends, employees and sponsors, was a tremendous success.
With the help and generosity of its donors, sponsors and volunteers, Menkes was able to raise $165,000.
