SOCODEVI Foundation: annual golf tournament raises $57,000
Leaders of the Quebec Cooperative and Mutual Network responded to the SOCODEVI Foundation’s invitation to participate in the 12th edition of the organization’s annual benefit golf tournament, held August 28th in Drummondville. $57,000 CAD was raised to benefit the families who are members of cooperatives in developing countries.
Under the honorary chairmanship of Jean St-Gelais, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of La Capitale Insurance and Financial Services, the event raised more than $17,000 CAD to support a specific project aimed at improving the working conditions of women cooperators employed in the rice sector in Ivory Coast.
SOCODEVI and its Foundation would like to especially thank La Capitale Insurance and Financial Services for its contribution to the success of this event. We would also like to thank our entire cooperative and mutual network for supporting our Foundation.
