A gorgeous sunny day greeted golfers who participated in the annual Signature Golf Tournament

for Erie Shores Health Foundation at Erie Shores Golf Club on Wednesday, September 15. A total of 176 golfers took part in the tournament and were treated to an exceptional experience — on the course and off.

The event was supported by four platinum sponsors: RZH, Tilray, Uni-Fab, and Double Diamond with dozens of additional sponsors at the gold, silver and bronze levels.

Staggered tee times ensured safe golfing for everyone, with other COVID protocols in place. From valet parking to a gelato bar, swag bags, premium refreshments, a party tent and some great raffle prizes, lunch and dinner to-go, golfers got the royal treatment.

Live entertainment throughout the course included Jen Knight and Mark Mailloux, DJ Mike Mele, Bob Gabriele and Dan Woods, Jody Raffoul and Ciao Duo.

“As with any successful event it takes an incredible team to pull it off,” said Gloria Cavenago, ESHF Development Officer. “I would like to thank Deanna Bavetta and the rest of our dedicated volunteers and foundation staff.” Cavenago was grateful to her team and the sponsors of the event, that raised $278,000 as of press time.

“This year’s committee members as well as our chair, John Cervini, were nothing short of a dream team. Our community’s generosity continuously warms my heart so I must send a shout out to all our amazing sponsors,” she added. “Your support and commitment to our local hospital and to this community is simply extraordinary.”

John Cervini, ESHF Golf Committee Chair, was also impressed with the way things went. “I would like to thank our community for continued support for local healthcare,” he said. “Erie Shores Health Foundation understands people have choices when it comes to volunteering and donating and we appreciate the support. We were able to raise a great deal of funds through the team work of our planning committee, volunteers and sponsors and are truly grateful.”

Christine Colautti, CEO of the Erie Shores Health Foundation, summed it up by saying, “It was a great day out on the course. Thank you to everyone who attended and all of our supporters.”
