Another Successful Tournament to Fight Hunger!
On June 13, 2019 more than 200 players came together for a good cause and donned their best vintage clothes as part of the Moisson Montéal Golf Classic at the Hillsdale Golf Club in Mirabel.
During the 17th edition of this event, with each dollar raised in the tournament, $15 in food was donated. Thanks to the players, partners and donors, a total of $251,226 was raised which amounted to more than $3 million in food distributed among more than 250 organizations on the island of Montreal. Once again this year, several members of the Savoie family took part in the event to offer their support to Moisson Montréal and to help fight against food insecurity.
Eddy Junior Savoie, proud member of the Board of Directors
For the past 10 years, Eddy Junior Savoie has generously dedicated his time and efforts to the Board of Directors of Moisson Montréal, a cause very close to his heart. As Director and Chairman of the Golf Classic Committee, Mr. Junior Savoie brings to the table his managerial skills and his many years of administrative experience to support the development and the mission of Moisson Montréal year after year.
Coming from a family of five children, he developed important values from a very young age, such as sharing, empathy and listening to others. Over the years, he has applied them both personally and professionally, particularly in his involvement with Moisson Montréal.
« On behalf of Les Résidences Soleil and Moisson Montréal, I would like to thank all those who participated in this worthy cause again this year. I am very proud to say that this is the 10th consecutive year that Les Résidences Soleil – Savoie Group is associated with Moisson Montréal. I would also like to thank our many collaborators here with us today, it warms my heart to see so many of you gather for a cause that is so dear to us! »
