It was the perfect day to hit the greens for the 7th Annual Knights of Columbus Charity Golf Tournament hosted by the St. Paul the Apostle Council 9652. More than a 100 golfers headed to Camden Braes Golf and Country Club for the event on June 15, raising $14,000 for Providence Care’s Providence Manor redevelopment project. The donation is part of the Knights of Columbus Diocesan Association’s $100,000 pledge towards the project.
The redevelopment project includes rebuilding Providence Manor and relocating it to Providence Village, the park-like, historical Motherhouse property in the center of Kingston, owned by the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul.
“We are thrilled to present the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation with a gift of $14,000,” says Michael Mombourquette, Grand Knight, St. Paul the Apostle Council 9652. “This event wouldn’t have been successful without the support from the participants, volunteers, sponsors and hard-working golf tournament committee. We know that with the continued support of our generous members and community we will reach our goal of $100,000.”
“This generous gift from the Knights of Columbus will help ensure that our residents continue to receive compassionate and respectful care but in a new home, at Providence Village,” says Cathy Szabo, President and CEO, Providence Care. “It will be more than a home, by moving to Providence Village we’re creating a community that will not only meet the needs of our residents but also their families and loved ones. And this donation gets us one step closer to that dream.”
“We would like to thank the Knights of Columbus for their continued support of this project,” says Susan Creasy, Chair, Campaign Committee, University Hospitals Kingston Foundation. “The design and development of the new home will preserve what makes Providence Manor unique while creating an environment that will improve care and whole-person well-being wherever possible.”
