Brook was a Police Officer with the Hamilton Police Service for 25 years. Brook was a
decorated officer, family man and friend to all. He left a lasting impression on everyone
he touched. His laugh was infectious, his humour unmatched. He always had a smile on
his face and could brighten anyone’s day. In August 2006, Brook was involved in a
motor vehicle accident and sustained serious head injuries. Brook was in the Hamilton
General Hospital ICU for 10 days before succumbing to his injuries. In death, as in life,
Brook was a hero. Brook’s organ donations saved the lives of 5 people.
This year we are hosting our 2nd annual Charity Golf Tournament in memory of our
friend Brook. This year promises to be a huge success. We will continue the tournament
annually with all proceeds going to charitable cause. A different charity will be named
each year. Last year we were able to donate $12,000.00 to refurbish the Hamilton
General Hospital ICU waiting room.
This year the proceeds will go towards Drew LEE and his family. In August 2006 Drew,
then 13 years old, was walking home from the Festival of Friends in Gage Park. Drew
was severely beaten in a random act of violence. As a result Drew was in a drug induce
coma for five weeks and spent five months in the hospital. From repeated kicks to the
head, Drew suffered brain damage and has ongoing difficulties with his speech and
memory. Drew also continues to take therapy for his physical injuries. Drew has gained
the ability to walk, which doctors initially believed to be impossible. Drew has continued
in school but requires a full time educational assistant. Drew’s mother Amber was force
to quit work in order to care for Drew. They have not received any form of victim
compensation. This year we will raise funds to send Drew to Disney World. Please help
us in our efforts.
This is a unique opportunity to associate your business with this worthwhile event.
Sponsor companies will be prominently displayed and your contribution will ensure a
successful tournament. We encourage your support and hope you will join us in our
efforts. Hole sponsorship is available as well as prizes, closest to the pin, longest drive,
