Commissionaires sponsor Broadmead tournament

Commissionaires CVIY has signed a three-year title sponsorship for Broadmead Care’s Charity Golf Tournament

Commissionaires Victoria, the Islands and Yukon is partnering with Broadmead Care to tee up support for veterans.

Commissionaires CVIY has signed a three-year title sponsorship for Broadmead Care’s Charity Golf Tournament, an annual tournament that raises funds for special projects at the Veterans Memorial Lodge at Broadmead.

Broadmead Care delivers high-quality residential care programs to veterans, seniors and adults with disabilities who require assistance. The Veterans Memorial Lodge at Broadmead is a 229-bed residential care facility which provides 115 priority access beds and additional four respite care beds for Second World War and Korean War veterans.

“We could not be more pleased about our sponsorship of the annual Broadmead Care Charity Golf Tournament and our ongoing partnership with the Broadmead care team,” said Commissionaire CVIY’s CEO Gary Paulson. “As Commissionaires we are honoured to have the opportunity to contribute to the care and well-being of our veterans.”

This year’s tournament raised $85,000, with proceeds going towards the replacement of old night tables, cabinets and renovation of the veterans’ and seniors’ rooms. Money raised next year will help support the Every Moment Matters Fund, supporting the programs and services that help residents and clients of Broadmead Care facilities live in comfort, safety and happiness.

“We are excited about the extension of our three-year title sponsorship opportunity with Commissionaires Victoria,” said Broadmead Care CEO Dave Cheperdak.

“We are proud to serve Canada’s veterans and CAF members at the Veterans Memorial Lodge at Broadmead and the Veterans Health Centre and highly value the support of the Commissionaires in serving these important Canadians.”
