Family Donation in Appreciation of Excellent Care

The 2nd annual Tee Off for Tom Invitational Memorial Golf Tournament took place on June 30th in memory of Tom Mustapic.
His family donated $5,000 of the proceeds of the tournament to the ICU department at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre.
Tom was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in early 2019 and sadly passed away in December 2020. Tom was an active and very well respected member of the Thunder Bay community. He was an avid golfer and, after his passing, his sons and their friends organized a golf tournament to raise funds to go towards ALS and other charities that supported Tom throughout his illness.
Tom had one short hospital stay during his illness - in the ICU Department at TBRHSC. During this stay, his family says he received excellent care and was treated with a great deal of dignity and respect and this donation was made to show the family’s appreciation.
Over the past two years, the annual golf tournament has been a great success raising close to $50,000 for various charities, thanks to the many generous tournament sponsors.
