Entegrus, along with the EDA (Electricity Distributor’s Association) Western District, hosted the Power of Golf “Fore Charity” Tournament at the St. Thomas Golf and Country Club on Thursday, September 12th.
Golfers from the Electricity industry throughout western Ontario came together in support of the St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital Foundation, raising $40,875 for the Women and Children’s Unit to purchase a new neonatal incubator and monitor.
We were thrilled to have the opportunity to bring this tournament to St. Thomas,” said Jim Hogan, President & CEO of Entegrus. “The generosity of our Western District members, sponsors, local businesses and vendors made this a tournament to remember, and we are happy to support the incredible work that is being done by the St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital Foundation.”
Western District Chair, Chris White, credits the generosity of its members for the annual success of this tournament. “Since its inception, the EDA Western District Golf Tournament has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local charities. This tournament is an excellent example of what we can achieve when we collaborate as an industry.”
Paul Jenkins, Executive Director, St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital Foundation, is grateful to the EDA Western District for selecting their organization as the Tournament Beneficiary. “Our Hospital relies solely on fundraising for our equipment costs. The impact of being the beneficiary of this tournament will be felt for years to come. Thank you for choosing the STEGH Foundation.”
