The 7th annual DIALOG charity golf tournament

The 7th annual DIALOG charity golf tournament

With the temperature at a frigid 3 degrees C, snow flurries in the air, and gale force winds howling, 142 hardy golfers (a sold-out crowd) teed off at beautiful Copper Creek Golf Club in Kleinburg for DIALOG’s 7th Annual Charity Golf Tournament on May 24, 2013. Although many questioned the sanity of our efforts and wondered if they’d ever be warm again, the fact that all proceeds from the day’s activities supported the Centre for Mental Health and Addiction (CAMH) made it all worthwhile.

Following a six-hour round, a delicious buffet lunch and a cool beverage really hit the spot. The Toronto DIALOG partners were thrilled to present Kevin Conlon, representing CAMH, with a cheque for $40,000. Since 2010, DIALOG has donated over $145,000 to CAMH. Kevin, the winner of CAMH’s Transforming Lives Award in 2012, spoke candidly and passionately about his life after he lost everything to a gambling addiction – his job on Bay Street, his home and his family. CAMH offered him the services to get his life back on track.

As always, everyone enjoyed themselves and vowed that they’d be back next year!
