Regional Councillor Alan Ho recently hosted his 9th Charity Golf Tournament — Golf Delivers Warmth & Love — at the Angus Glen Golf Club.
Co-hosted by Tommy Tam, President of the Canadian Golf Teachers Federation (Chinese Division), and Honorary Chair, Mayor Frank Scarpitti, Ho once again demonstrated the power of unity in supporting charitable causes.
The tournament has an illustrious history of achieving remarkable milestones.
Over the years, this event has been a driving force behind various initiatives, including the “Markham Longest Dragon Dance” Guinness World Record attempt. It has also extended a helping hand during disasters in regions such as Sichuan, Yunnan, Nepal, and beyond, actively participating in post-disaster reconstruction efforts.
Moreover, the funds raised at the annual tournament have significantly contributed to healthcare institutions, including Markham Stouffville Hospital, Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, and Sinai Health System Toronto.
In recognition of the exceptional challenges posed by the ongoing pandemic, Ho took a moment to pay tribute to the heroic healthcare workers at the forefront of the battle against COVID-19. Their unwavering dedication and resilience, often at the risk of their health, profoundly inspired everyone in attendance.
To honour their dedication and service, the selected beneficiary for this year’s tournament was “Canadian Doctors for Medicare,” a non-profit organization advocating for a publicly funded, equitable, and accessible healthcare system in Canada. The tournament raised an impressive $30,000 to support its vital mission.
Ho expressed his gratitude to all the sponsors, participants, and volunteers who made this event a resounding success, stating. “I am continually amazed by the generosity and support of our community,” Ho said. This year’s tournament has once again showcased the strength of our unity and our shared commitment to making a positive impact. We proudly support Canadian Doctors for Medicare and their important work advocating accessible healthcare for all.”
