Medigas Classic tops 3 million

It was a perfect ending to a 30 year summer tradition in Belleville. A benefit golf tournament created by then St. Louis Blues captain Rick Meagher and good friend John Pepper in 1988 came to a close 29 years and more than 3 million dollars later at Trillium Wood Golf Course in Belleville. The 3 million dollar mark was reached during a sports auction conducted by Boyd Sullivan. The announcement drew a loud standing ovation.

As with the previous 29 tournaments it ended with a full field of 180 golfers including a star studded field of sports celebrities. (See list below)

The tournament raised just over $13,000 in its inaugural season with the funds donated to Easter Seals through the Rotary Club in Belleville.
Within two years the Volunteer Committee incorporated, allowing it to use all funds locally to assist children and youth with physical challenges.
The committee expanded its charitable scope to fund two fully accessible playgrounds at West Zwick’s and West Riverside Parks. Another playground will officially open at the Children’s Treatment Centre at Belleville General Hospital next week. The Medigas Celebrity Classic contributed $75,000 toward that project.

The tournament also created the “Driving Dreams for our Youth Scholarship” to assist students in area high schools entering an accredited college or university, in a health science field of study.

Randy McFarland of Medigas, the driving force behind the event for the last ten years says the success of the tournament will allow support for families in need of treatment and travel to continue into the future. He adds there could be a significant investment into another structure to enhance accessibility in the city.

The Dudley-Hewitt Cup champion Trenton Golden Hawks continue to make over their roster for the upcoming OJHL season.

Trenton has acquired 18 year old forward Mark Tassone from the Soo Thunderbirds of the Northern League for future considerations. In 52 games last season, the 6 foot 200 pound Tassone scored 18 goals and 19 assists.

Golden Hawks Director of Operations John McDonald saw Tassone play as a 17 year old at the 2016 Dudley-Hewitt Cup in Kirkland Lake. McDonald says they were quite impressed with the Sault St. Marie native.
