On June 26 more than 125 people gathered at Wooden Sticks Golf club in Uxbridge, ON, for the Bad to the Bone Golf Classic in support of the Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation. Although the weather did not cooperate – there was pouring rain and even hail – golfers were able to get in a few holes before being called off the course.
The banquet started a bit earlier, and host Sherry Bassin, COF Director, led his ever-popular auction. Such items as a Caribbean vacation (airfare and accommodations), trip to Montreal to see a Canadiens game, hockey sticks and jerseys signed by Connor McDavid, Darnell Nurse and Connor Brown, and various sports tickets, brought in a whopping $20,000.
The COF thanks all sponsors, foursomes and auction donors for supporting this signature event, which brought in $112,000. Proceeds support the Foundation’s mandate to fund orthopaedic research, education and patient care.
Thank you to our 2017 Sherry Bassin Bad to the Bone Golf Sponsors.
