Great Gulf Donates $200k to Brampton Cancer Support Centre
Great Gulf has donated $200k to Wellspring Chinguacousy to support cancer patients in Brampton and surrounding communities. Here’s Great Gulf president Christopher Wein, second from left, with Brampton Mayor Linda Jeffrey, regional councillor Gael Miles, and Wellspring Cancer Support Foundation CEO Christina Smith, who noted that with no core government funding, Wellspring Chinguacousy relies on donations to offer its cancer support programs and services free of charge. Wellspring Chinguacousy had 6,721 program visits last year.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, aka Cardinal Golf Club in Kettleby, Ont, the 20th annual Great Gulf Invitational—a Wild-West themed affair, complete with mechanical bull competition—raised over $154k for Sunnybrook’s Centre for Youth Bipolar Disorder. This brings total funds generated by Great Gulf for the centre to over $1M. Director Dr. Benjamin Goldstein, second from left accepting the cheque, said the facility—a hub of clinical care, education and research on youth bipolar disorder—"came into existence on the strength of Great Gulf’s support."
