Small Community Gives Big Support to the Janeway

Calvert Masters Golf Tournament — Another Triumphant Year!

St. John’s, NL: The 6th Annual Calvert Masters Golf Tournament was held at the Wilds in Salmonier on August 20th. The tournament is organized by volunteers from the Calvert community. It is an event where current and past residents of the community are invited to play in support of The Janeway Children’s Hospital Foundation. The 2015 event raised $51,249 for the Janeway.

“Thank you to the community of Calvert for choosing to support the province’s sick and injured children,” says Lynn Sparkes, Executive Director. “The Janeway is very fortunate to have the generous support of small communities like Calvert whose passion and commitment will help us create a healthier tomorrow. Our donors are essential in helping our medical team provide the best care possible.”

“Many thanks to all of our sponsors, golfers and social participants for helping us make the 6th Annual Calvert Masters a huge success! It’s such a unique event for those of us who grew up or currently live in Calvert to come together and support the Janeway Hospital – and have a fun time doing it!” says Tim Murphy, member of the organizing committee.

All net proceeds will assist the Janeway Foundation to acquire the newest pediatric medical equipment, continued education, life-saving research and vital programming for pediatric health care at the Janeway Children’s Health and Rehabilitation Centre.
