The Matthew Salsa Golf tournament :

The annual Matthew Salsa Memorial Golf Tournament raises $ 35,000 for Sun Youth.

Sun Youth recently had the great pleasure of honouring Fatima and George Salsa with a plaque of merit at the annual Matthew Salsa Memorial Golf Tournament. The plaque was presented by Executive Director Earl De La Perralle.

The tournament was created in order to honour the late Matthew Salsa who passed away suddenly as he was struck by a tree at the Rosemère Golf Club in 2012. At 18 years of age, Matthew was considered to be one of the best junior golfers in the province and most impor­tantly a great individual and a model citizen. Admirably, Matthew’s parents have chosen to pledge the funds raised from their son’s tournament to helping others. Thanks to the generosity of all those in attendance, $ 45,000 were raised to profit Sun Youth Organization and Golf Québec.

Sports and recreation hold a special place at Sun Youth as the organization was built on athletics activities for children and has grown tremendously from that starting point. The promotion of the physical, social and intellec­tual development of young people is at the core of both the department and the organization. Over 800 children and young people annually benefit from the department’s programs including football, basketball, hockey and day camp. Sun Youth would like to thank first and foremost the Salsa family, as well as the multiple spon­sors and all the golfers who took part in the event: their support for the sports and recreation program and their contributions are immensely appreciated.
