2019 Mayors' Charity Golf Classic
The premier golf event in Durham Region returned on Thursday Thursday Sept. 12 when a full field of community and business leaders played in the 2019 Mayors’ Charity Golf Classic in support of the Intensive Care Unit at the Ajax Pickering Hospital of Lakeridge Health.

Along with a day of golf on one of the finest courses in Durham Region, participants enjoyed dinner, a live auction plus a demonstration of the equipment to be purchased.

The Classic is also an opportunity for the Ajax Pickering Hospital Foundation to announce the recipient of the Howard Sokolowski Award, presented annually to an individual who has shown great dedication to health care in the community. A closely guarded secret, the recipient was announced during the evening dinner portion of the event. This year's recipients were Dawn Rowe & Albert Marrache of Phoenix A.M.D. International Inc..

Event co-chairs Vic Sgro and Jim Witty are proud to announce that this year’s event was, again, a resounding success having completely sold out, including Durham Live as the new presenting sponsor, and raising a total of $200,000 for the Intensive Care Unit at Ajax Pickering Hospital.

The ICU staff are excited that proceeds from this year’s tournament will be used to upgrade its central monitoring system.

When slight change in a patient’s status might have huge repercussions for their treatment options or on the progress of their recovery, it is essential that medical staff can track and analyze the most up-to-date information. This is especially crucial for the twelve patients in the hospital’s ICU. The new monitoring system is the next generation of connectivity that will provide – in real time – even more vital statistics to the medical team about their patients, enabling prompter and even more informed responses, whether they are viewing the results on a screen from inside the patient’s room, from a central location within the unit or even remotely from off site. This new technology is part of a virtual system of care that expands the medical team from just those at the bedside to a broader group who might be physically located further afield.
That's why this year’s tournament is so important because the sponsors and players could be saving the life of a colleague, a client or maybe even someone you love.
