The 11th Annual Golf Tournament of the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence, which was held on August 30, 2021, at the prestigious Royal Montreal Golf Club, generated a net profit of $605,000 for the Residence. Over the last eleven years, the Residence’s annual golf tournament has established itself as one of the main fundraisers and has raised a total of $3 million ensuring patients live the final chapter of their lives in the best and most fulfilling manner possible, with dignity and at peace. As Dale Weil, Executive Director of the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence said following the announcement of the results:
