For the past five years, the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation has benefitted from the generosity of Haywood Securities’ clients, friends and colleagues at their annual Charity Golf Tournament. Under the leadership of Tony Migliarese and Allison Rivas, this premier Golf Tournament, which has included professional golfer Rocco Mediate, has raised nearly $450,000 for state-of-the-art equipment and family-centered care programs impacting thousands of children and families in our community.

Each year, the tournament focuses on a different area of need within the hospital. Thanks to generous support through this annual event, the hospital is now home to incredible life-saving equipment such as a portable echocardiogram, 3Tesla Magnetic Resonance Imaging (3T MRI) Scanner, and an artificial heart and lung system called Extracorporeal Life Support. With these investments, hospital specialists are better equipped to provide the best possible care to kids when they need it most.

A tournament of this caliber requires immense dedication, time and resources. We’d like to extend our sincere gratitude to Tony and Allison for their enthusiasm and on-going commitment to children’s health. We feel so fortunate to have community partners like Haywood Securities who weave philanthropy so tightly into their corporate culture.
