Montreal, Quebec — June 29, 2016 — Quebec’s automotive recycling association, ARPAC, has announced the successful completion of its annual golf tournament.

The 19th Annual ARPAC Foundation Golf Tournament was held at the Golf Club of the Island of Montreal. As usual when it comes to industry golf tournaments, there was more to the event than just hitting the links and having a good time. There’s a charitable component to the tournament as well, with a different charity chosen each year to receive the funds raised.

This year, the receiving charity was Lighthouse Childrens and Families. Founded in 1999, Lighthouse Children and Families contributes to the well-being of children whose lives are threatened by illnesses that require complex treatment. The organization also provides respite and support to their families.

To carry out its mission, Lighthouse welcomes children at Maison André-Gratton, Quebec’s only pediatric palliative care home, which offers both respite stays and end-of-life care. It also offers in-home respite care and a family support program. All services are free of charge.

Thanks to ARPAC, and its members and partners, the tournament raised a total of $3,250 for the charity

ARPAC represents 82 automotive recyclers across the province of Quebec. For more information on the association, please visit
