It was another successful year for the Regional Chair’s Classic in memory of Roger Anderson

Although participants didn’t come together on the golf course this year due to COVID-19 restrictions, Roger Anderson’s legacy continued with the 2021 Virtual Regional Chair’s Classic silent auction.

Thanks to the generous donations from our sponsors, donors and proceeds from the auction, over $150,000 was raised in support of students in financial need at Durham College and Ontario Tech University, as well as programs at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences.

In total more than $6.9 million has been raised since the tournament’s inception.

“I want to thank the local community for their support of the students and youth in Durham Region,” said John Henry, Regional Chair and Chief Executive Officer for The Regional Municipality of Durham. “Although this year’s Regional Chair’s Classic was different than in the past, the results and impact will continue to make a difference in the lives of many.”

Don Lovisa, president, Durham College; Karim Mamdani, president and CEO, Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences; Dr. Steven Murphy, president, Ontario Tech University were on hand for the cheque presentation, also offering their gratitude on behalf of their respective institutions.
