Budds’ BMW has always made an effort to support the community by getting involved with local charities. That said, it is with great enthusiasm that we announce that Budds’ BMW Hamilton and Budds’ BMW Oakville is a sponsor of the 2011MacKids Invitational Golf Tournament.

The tournament, which raises money for Hamilton’s McMaster Children’s Hospital, will take place on September 11th and 12th at The Rosseau, a beautiful JW Marriott Resort and Spa in Muskoka, Ontario. To participate in the tournament, players must pledge or donate a minimum of $5,000. Proceeds from this year’s event will go towards the Essentials for Excellence for Diagnostic Imaging program at the hospital.

We are thrilled that Darryl and Matthew will be participating in the event. If you would like to sponsor Darryl or Matthew and support the McMaster Children’s Hospital, visit the Budds’ BMW Hamilton website at Good luck, guys!

The MacKids Invitational has been extremely successful in previous years. Last year, the tournament raised enough funds to help Dr. Mark Taropolsky and his team of world class surgeons treat Neuromuscular and Neurometabolic disorders in children. There was even some money left over to make significant facility and equipment improvements around the hospital.

The hospital, which is currently in the middle of a major five year transformation, is committed to delivering the best care possible to all of its patients. The funds raised by the golf tournament will go towards purchasing state-of-the-art equipment, which will help improve the calibre of care given by the hospital’s dedicated staff.
