Team Brad Jacobs, with title sponsor Century 21, are hosting their 6th Annual Charity Golf Classic this afternoon. All proceeds raised will be split between the Sault Area Hospital’s Maternal Child Fund and the Team Brad Jacobs ‘Follow Your Dreams’ Bursary for Algoma University.
Saultites get the opportunity to golf with celebrities including Curtis Joseph, Scott Moir, Jim Ralph, Colin Miller, and many more hockey and sports alumni who came out to show their support for these two great causes.
Following the 18-holes at the Sault Ste. Marie Golf Club, the party will move over to the Machine Shop, where Team Jacobs will host a meet and greet, dinner, and silent auction in hopes of raising more funds.
Jacobs told SaultOnline the prizes are amazing, consisting of unique sports memorabilia.
Deanna Seaton, Century 21 Business Manager, said “This year we have about 40 teams and 4 or 5 people per team. It is our second year being title sponsor for this event and we love it. It is amazing to see the community come together like this, and raise money for such amazing local causes.”
Logan Costa, Development and Communications Officer for the Sault Area Hospital Fund, shared a little bit about what exactly the money will be used for. “It will go specifically to the women’s and children’s health unit. It’s meant to help not only women who are giving birth, but also new born babies between paediatrics and the NICU.” He continued “it allows us to purchase equipment that we wouldn’t have otherwise. One of the most important things now as technology has advanced is wireless telemetry monitors, which help us to track not only the mother’s vitals but the baby’s while they are still in the womb. The modern technology is critical here locally so that families can stay here and get the same level of care that they would down south.”
