25th Regional Chair’s Classic honours legacy of Roger Anderson
The 2023 Regional Chair’s Classic in Memory of Roger Anderson was a great success.
On Thursday, June 8 at Deer Creek Golf and Country Club in Ajax, close to 200 golfers and generous sponsors joined Regional Chair John Henry for the 25th tournament in support of students in financial need at Durham College and Ontario Tech University, as well as patient-focused programs at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences.
With $260,000 raised this year, the total amount of funds raised since the tournament’s inception is now more than $7.6 million.
“In Durham Region, we believe that education and mental health programs should be accessible to all. Roger Anderson believed that too,” said Regional Chair John Henry. “By coming together on the golf course for this great event, we have raised money for our students in need and for Ontario Shores Centre’s invaluable youth programs, while honouring Roger’s memory.”
Don Lovisa, president, Durham College; James Barnett, vice-president, Advancement, Ontario Tech University; and Colin O’Regan, board member, Ontario Shores Foundation joined Henry and Roger Anderson’s son Warren for the cheque presentation to share their gratitude on behalf of their respective institutions.
Next year’s event is set for Thursday, June 13, 2024.
