The 26th Annual St. Joseph’s General Hospital Foundation Golf Classic will take place June 16 at the Crown Isle Golf Resort.

“This is one of Vancouver Island’s premier golf tournaments and the largest single‐day fundraiser for the Hospital Foundation,” says tournament chair Robert Mulrooney, who’s also a senior investment advisor at HollisWealth, a division of Scotia Capital Inc. and founding partner of Mindset Wealth, the event’s title sponsor.

The event will feature 18 holes of exceptional golf, lunch provided by Boston Pizza, a buffet dinner, both a live and silent auction and – back by popular demand – the Keil Wealth Management “Million Dollar Shootout, six shooters get a shot at a million‐dollar hole‐in‐one,” explains Mulrooney.

Over the past 25 years, the annual charity golf classic has raised more than $570,000 for vital equipment that enhances the level of patient care at St. Joseph’s.

“St Joseph’s is so appreciative of this event, it is key to building relationships and raising much‐needed funds for the hospital,” says hospital president and CEO Jane Murphy. “The proceeds from this year’s event will support the purchase of a highly specialized fluid management system that will support procedures in the operating room. This is new state-of-the-art technology that we would not be able to provide to our community without the support of the golf classic. ”

Participants have also walked away with thousands of dollars’ worth of auction items, and this year will be no exception. This year’s items will be auctioned off by Comox Valley renowned auctioneer Dave Stevens. The nine live auction items include Vancouver Canucks ticket packages with a Canucks jersey signed by goalie Ryan Miller, a “Wall of Wine” sponsored by Ana Fleck of Invis Mortgage, and seats at one of the sold-out Adele shows at Rogers Arena in July.

“The business community has been wonderful, as usual, jumping on board and supporting the classic,” says Mulrooney. “We’re still looking for donations for the silent and live auctions, and there are even a few spots left for hole sponsors.

“We’d be remiss if we didn’t acknowledge the great job done by the organizing committee and the tournament sponsors: Crown Isle, Quality Foods, 97.3 The Eagle, the Comox Valley Record and of course Mindset Wealth,” he adds.

Reserve a spot for you or your team in the 26th annual St. Joseph’s General Hospital Foundation Golf Classic by contacting Rod Prieto at 250‐703‐5010 or rod@crownisle.ca. To sponsor a hole or donate an auction item, contact Mulrooney or Russ Wigle at Mindset Wealth: 250‐338‐5222.
