Knights of Columbus raise $14k towards Providence Village project
More than 100 golfers headed to Camden Braes Golf and Country Club for the seventh annual Knights of Columbus Charity Golf Tournament hosted by the St. Paul the Apostle Council 9652 on Monday, Jun. 15, 2019.
The event raised $14,000 as part of the Knights of Columbus Diocesan Association’s $100,000 pledge towards the Providence Care’s Providence Manor redevelopment project.
“We are thrilled to present the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation with a gift of $14,000,” said Michael Mombourquette, Grand Knight, St. Paul the Apostle Council 9652. “This event wouldn’t have been successful without the support from the participants, volunteers, sponsors and hard-working golf tournament committee. We know that with the continued support of our generous members and community we will reach our goal of $100,000.”
The redevelopment project includes rebuilding Providence Manor and relocating it to Providence Village, the historical Motherhouse property in the center of Kingston owned by the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul.
“This generous gift from the Knights of Columbus will help ensure that our residents continue to receive compassionate and respectful care but in a new home, at Providence Village,” said Providence Care President and CEO Cathy Szabo. “It will be more than a home: by moving to Providence Village we’re creating a community that will not only meet the needs of our residents but also their families and loved ones. This donation gets us one step closer to that dream.”
Susan Creasy, Campaign Committee Chair of the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation (UHFK) thanked the Knights of Columbus for their continued support of the project.
“The design and development of the new home will preserve what makes Providence Manor unique while creating an environment that will improve care and whole-person well-being wherever possible,” Creasy said.
