The Dr. Jay Charitable Foundation was the dream of four long-time golfing buddies, Bob Goodman, Stuart Levinsky, Steve Zinberg and Jay Bacher. It began in 1996 as The Dr. Jay Golf Classic. “The Jay” has since grown in scope and stature to become a registered Charitable Foundation. Since the first Dr. Jay Golf Classic in 1996 the tournament has raised over $3,500,000. Little did these four friends know how far their dream would grow.
Today, the Foundation is a family made up of many wonderful people who care enough to give of themselves in order to raise much needed funds.
In 2007, The Dr. Jay Charitable Foundation will focus its support on the new Dr. Jay Children’s Grief Program in association with Mount Sinai Hospital and Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care. This program will provide grief counseling to dying children and to children whose parent or sibling is dying. The Grief Program will accept referrals from the Hospital for Sick Children along with other institutions and community centres.
