Hi :
It feels like we are all just about ready to breathe a HUGE sigh of relief as we start to see this Pandemic in the rearview mirror! The past 16 months have had a major impact on the lives of those close to us. I am sure that we are all looking forward to the coming months when we can once again share a meal, a hug and more with family, friends and golf buddies!
Last year saw the addition of The Nest Golf Club at Friday Harbour to the schedule and it seems to be a very popular course proving to be an exciting challenge to all of the players! This year marks the 12th year P.J. Dermody Insurance Brokers has had the pleasure of sponsoring a GTA AM Tour event. I look forward to seeing everyone this year at The NEST, after being absent in 2020 convalescing post hip surgery.
Our support of The Darling Home For Kids(DHFK) continues this year at the P J Dermody Insurance Classic on Wednesday July 21, 2021. Similar to 2020, our support will include a donation of $20 for each birdie, $50 for each eagle and $250 for any hole in one scored at the event. The better you play, the more we will donate to DHFK. As players, you have helped support our endeavour to bring awareness to The Darling Home For Kids (DHFK) and the fabulous work they do providing high quality respite and palliative care services for children who are medically fragile and technology dependent. In 2020, our combined donation from this event raised just over $4,000 for The Home! Let's see what we can do to top that for 2021!!
Should you chose to do so, donations may be made online directly at: darlinghomeforkids.ca/pjdermody
The Orlando Corporation has extended “The Embrace Campaign”. With this all donations directed specifically to the Campaign will be matched by Orlando Corporation! What a great benefit for DHFK! Tax receipts are provided with your online donation. We are all winners when we can play a game that we love so passionately and at the same time support the needs of children.
In addition to our support of the DHFK we will also provide a draw for four $250 Gift Cards at the Tour Championship On Sunday October 3, 2021. Participating in the draw is easy! You can obtain ballots in the following ways:
1. All those registered to play at the P.J. Dermody Insurance Classic receive 1 ballot
2. Winners in each flight will automatically receive 3 added ballots
3. Request a quote for insurance by calling OUR NEW PHONE NUMBER 905-475-7750 or by emailing paul@dermodyinsurance.ca or francine@dermodyinsurnace.ca and receive 1 ballot
4. Purchase any form of insurance from P.J. Dermody Insurance Brokers and receive 5 ballots
Mark, in challenging times, such as what we have experienced in the past 16 months, the cream always rises to the top. You and your team do a great job of keeping us safe, making us all feel like pros, with on course assistance and prizing second to none. The fellowship that has developed out of this community is a major reason a lot of players return each year. Congratulations on a job well done! 
In the meantime ... Support a great cause! Stay Safe! Play Well, and Keep it in the short grass!!
