Today it was announced by the Cowan Insurance Group that they have named CMHO as their 2019 Charity of Choice. Each year, funds from the annual Cowan Charity Classic Golf Tournament go towards supporting the Charity of Choice. Since its inception in 2002, this annual tournament has raised over $1.4 million. This year, funds raised at the 2019 Tournament will help to support CMHO and the nearly 100 child and youth mental health agencies that we serve.
“We are so grateful for the support of the Cowan Insurance Group and those attending this year’s Cowan Charity Classic Golf Tournament." said CMHO CEO, Kim Moran, "This funding will make a difference in our work to promote a high-quality, coordinated system of care that puts children, youth and families first.”
In a statement released by Cowan Insurance Group, Heather McLachlin, President, Cowan Insurance Group said, “Giving back to the communities where we live and work is the essence of who we are. 2019 marks the 18th year for the Charity Classic, and we’re thrilled to partner with CMHO in support of the amazing work they do on behalf of children and youth.”
Through the support of sponsors, business partners and golf tournament participants, the funds raised at the event, are matched by The Cowan Foundation, which was established in 1995 in honour of Frank Cowan, the founder of Cowan Insurance Group. “Programs benefitting the health and well-being of children and youth are a focus area for us,” said Mary D’Alton, Executive Director, The Cowan Foundation. “CMHO’s values and mission are closely aligned with our own, making this partnership a natural fit.”
The 2019 Cowan Charity Classic Golf Tournament will be held on Monday, June 17, at Glencairn Golf Club, CMHO will be represented there by CEO, Kim Moran.
