Moncton, Tuesday, August 25, 2020—The CHU Dumont Foundation is pleased to announce that the fundraising campaign replacing its annual Scotiabank—BMW Moncton Golf Classic was a great success, generating a total of $23,650.

This fine example of donor generosity will allow the Foundation to continue its work by supporting projects in numerous departments of the Dr.-Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre.

When it was decided to cancel this year’s event, the organizing committee co-chairs, Chris Bacich (BMW Moncton) and Émile Albert (Scotiabank) thought it would be a good idea to seek the support of regular participants.

“We know that the current global situation has been particularly hard for local companies, but we never doubted the generosity of the Golf Classic participants for a minute,” says Mr. Bacich. “The needs at the Dumont UHC are as pressing as ever, especially during these uncertain times, so we are happy to be able to do our part.”

Mr. Albert weighs in “Health and well-being are among Scotiabank’s key areas of priority in the communities where we operate. Supporting the Golf Classic gives Scotiabank an opportunity to have a positive impact in our community”

Nadine Martin, Executive Director of the CHU Dumont Foundation, believes that the result of this initiative shows just how important improving the care offered at the Dr. Georges-L.Dumont University Hospital Centre is for the community.

“We are grateful to all our generous donors. Their support towards the cause will allow us to keep up the good work and finance even more projects to improve the experience that patients and their loved ones have at the Dumont UHC”

Since 1983, the CHU Dumont Foundation has been playing a leading role at the Dr. Georges-L.Dumont University Hospital Centre. Its support aimed at improving health care services is essential to the hospital’s vitality. It has allowed it to acquire state-of-the-art equipment and to implement and enhance programs that foster community wellness.
