It was a fun day had by all, as IUOE Local 793 held the 11th Annual Gary O’Neill Memorial Golf Tournament at Rattlesnake Point Golf Club in Milton.

Proceeds from the tournament are donated to the Esophageal Cancer Program at University Health Network (UHN) in Toronto led by Dr. Jonathan Yeung, Director of the Esophageal Cancer Program and a surgeon-scientist in the Division of Thoracic Surgery. Esophageal cancer is the fastest growing cancer type in North America and the sixth most common cancer in Canada.

This tournament and cause are especially important to Local 793, as Gary O’Neill was president for 13 years until his untimely passing in 2011 due to cancer. He was an avid golfer, and this tournament is now held annually in his honour.

See more photos and a video from the 11th Annual Gary O’Neill Memorial Golf Tournament in the Summer issue of Making Tracks, the magazine, available to members in digital format before the end of the month.
