10th Annual Golf Open: A Tradition of Caring!

The 10th annual Golf Open of the Fondation de l’Institut universitaire en santé mentale de Montréal raised over $105,000 to improve the quality of care and services offered to people living with mental health problems.

On August 19th, 152 golfers came out to the Boucherville Golf Club to take part in the event, which was celebrating its 10th year. This anniversary was the perfect opportunity to honour Uniprix Group President and CEO, François Castonguay, for his commitment to the cause.

In addition to serving on the Foundation’s board of directors, Mr. Castonguay has been chairing the golf tournament since its very beginnings. In recognition of his devotion, the Institute has named its boardroom the “Salle François Castonguay.” Moreover, a new award, known as the “Prix François Castonguay,” will now be given out every year to one of the organization’s service users in celebration of his or her outstanding progress towards full independence.

At the event, Mr. Castonguay delivered a few touching words along with some great news: an $870,000 donation from the Foundation to the Institute for the year 2013-2014.  “Thank you sincerely for your support. Through your contributions, we have taken many valuable steps forward in mental health research.”
