Once again this year, Canam Group and its partners was involved in the organization of the 19th annual golf tournament to benefit the Fondation Pinocchios which took place on August 26 at the Centre de golf Le Versant de Terrebonne in Québec. The event raised the amount of $132,000. More than 288 players met on that day to exchange and establish business contacts while playing golf.

Some employees from Boucherville are permanent members of the committee and work on organizing the tournament. Since Canam Group’s involvement in 2006, more than $830,000 has been donated to the Fondation.
