100 Holes for Haiti Golf Tournament Thursday, Sept 14, 2017


Dear Friends :--

One of our big fund-raisers of the year is our “100 Holes for Haiti” golf tournament, held at the beautiful Beverley Golf & Country Club near Copetown, Ontario. This year we would like to invite you to participate with us. We are expecting Louis Martin, the CEO of Hôpital Albert Schweitzer Haiti, will also golf with us, along with visiting Board members of the hospital. We would like you to meet with them and possibly golf with them, along with our own CFHAS board members. They will provide you with many experiences of the hospital during the day and at the banquet at the end of the day.

To make this an impressive fund-raiser, we would ask you to get friends, co-workers or your company to sponsor you to raise $1500 or more, to make this day a special gift to the Maternal and Child Care program at the hospital. As a sponsored golfer, the day will be completely yours to enjoy the course and its amenities.

A breakfast buffet will be served at 7:15am. Your cart will be waiting with balls, snacks, and drinks provided. Lunch will be served bbq-style on the patio. Continue golfing at your leisure, or 100 holes will be the challenge for those daring to accomplish what others have done. At 5:00pm Happy Hour with appetizers will be served with dinner and presentations to round out the evening. Last comes our tally of the day’s fund-raising efforts for the children of Haiti. Tax receipts will be sent out (at a later date) to all your sponsors.

Please email Arlene at to participate and more details will be provided.

Thank you!

Arlene Sargeant, Golf Committee Chair for CFHAS

The 2017 Haiti Happening

On February 25th, 2017, Canadian Friends of Hopital Albert Schweitzer-Haiti held The Haiti Happening dinner and silent auction at the elegant Michelangelo Events and Conference Centre.

Canadian Friends were pleased to have Adeline Azrack, a former director of monitoring and evaluation at the hospital and current HAS board member, act as guest speaker detailing her account of how innovative the hospital is in operating in a third world setting. Nicki Speers and Ellen Boldon, from the Pittsburgh main office, were also in attendance and delighted to see how their northern counterparts worked diligently to raise $32,462.33. All proceeds went to the hospital's maternal and child health programs. Hopital Albert Schweitzer provides 24/7 medical aid to over 350,000 people residing in the Artibonite Valley in Haiti.

Through purchasing a ticket, the guests of The Haiti Happening participated in life-saving care where millions of people, a mere three-hour plane ride away, live without basic healthcare.

A big thank you to all who attended and we look forward to seeing you next year!
