The Sofina Foundation's 10th annual Sofina & Amici Golf Classic raised a record $700,000 in support of the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre as well as the Ronald McDonald Houses in Toronto and Edmonton.
The sold-out event took place August 3, and featured celebrity chef Massimo Capra serving delicious pasta using Sofina products. Guests learned of the impact of their support through several video presentations as well as a first-hand account from a family that had been supported by both the Women & Babies Program and the Brain Sciences Program.
"Over the years we have seen how our support directly benefits the lives of so many. The testimonials we receive each year from our partners are truly touching and continue to be our motivation." said Michael Latifi, founder, chairman and CEO of Sofina Foods Inc.
This year's raised funds will go towards the construction of the Sunnybrook Health Science Centre's Youth Mental Health Program at the new Brain Sciences Centre. Additionally, funds will support the School at the Ronald McDonald House in Toronto, as well as the Kitchen Redevelopment Project at the Ronald McDonald House in Edmonton.
