2014 Annual Fundraiser Event



For the 7th year, the Champlain College Saint-Lambert Foundation Golf Tournament returned to the Country Club de Montréal on Monday, July 7, 2014. Since its inception, the annual golf tournament has raised over $100,000 for the Foundation. This year, the money was raised for the College in support for the student food bank, emergency student loans, scholarships and bursaries and for the new Early Childhood Education program starting Fall 2015.

A special thank you to all the volunteers and sponsors for helping to ensure the continued success of this annual fundraiser event.
