Menkes Raises Funds for Toronto Healthcare Organizations
October 11, 2017
On Thursday September 7th, 2017, Menkes hosted their annual 19th Charity Golf Classic at the Lionhead Golf Club in Mississauga. 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. The money raised this year will benefit three healthcare organizations, West Park Healthcare Centre, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, and Kensington Health. All three organizations provide a diverse range of tools and services to help their patients live better and happier lives.
The funds raised this year increased Menkes’ cumulative fundraising efforts from its Charity Golf Classic to over $1.3 million dollars in 19 years.
“Menkes Developments is more than just a city builder. For decades we have found ways to support various organizations within the City of Toronto, from arts and cultural events to important health and wellness initiatives,” says Steven Menkes, President, Low-Rise Residential Division. “The organizations we have selected as a beneficiary of the funds raised from the Golf Classic are providing life-changing care, and helping those suffering from severe injury or illness to really get their lives back.”
Thank you to the extensive support of everyone involved in making this event another yearly success.
