Since it first teed off in September 2004, the Concordia Golf Classic has raised more than $5.8 million for scholarships and bursaries that have benefited more than 1,500 students.

The money raised from the annual event provides critical financial support, encouraging the next generation of leaders and change-makers — like former bursary recipient Liliane Chamas, BSc 09, a Rhodes Scholar — to reach their fullest potential.

Boasting an impressive roster of co-chairs and co-presidents, the fundraiser was presided over by Norman Hébert Jr., BComm 77, and George Hanna, BA 72, throughout its first decade. The late L. Jacques Ménard, BComm 67, LLD 06, also served as co-president for two years.

Held at the exclusive Golf Griffon des Sources in Mirabel, the tournament is the only fundraiser in Quebec to convene execu­tives from Canada’s major banks in support of a good cause.

While COVID-19 has made it necessary to cancel the Golf Classic for 2020, organizers have high hopes for a successful event in 2021. Until then, continuing to extend support to stu­dents during this challenging time is more imperative than ever.

A heartfelt thank-you to our co-chairs, co-presidents, alumni, friends and partner organizations whose generosity and support have made this event such a huge success over the years.
