Marc-André Jean, of Clermont Dodge Chrysler, is more motivated than ever as the second edition of the Classique Auto Québec Charlevoix approaches, benefiting the Murray Bay Golf Club. He wants to raise $70,000 with the event, which will take place on September 21.

“It was my stepson who got me interested in golf and introduced me to Murray Bay,” he admits.

One morning, he showed up at the club and told director Marc Villeneuve, “I want to help you.” That’s how this tournament was born. $62,555 was raised last year.

Since he doesn’t do anything by halves, the Classic was only a classic in name. We’re still talking about the cocktail dinner that will be just as tasty this year. 50 more players are expected for a total of 216. About forty companies have already confirmed that they will send their forces to the tournament.

“The Murray Bay Golf Club is important to the region. The next generation is growing, as demonstrated by the number of participants in the school program. Everyone we meet here is nice. It is therefore important to ensure the sustainability of the club by collaborating on the construction of a new chalet,” says Marc-André Jean.

On two holes that will be determined, the author of a hole-in-one will leave with a car and on another with an ATV. There will be activities on 8 holes.

An auction of sporting goods and hotel packages will be added alongside the tournament.

The tournament will be held in the “Continuous Mulligan” format with three players. There will be two simultaneous starts: one in the morning and the second in the afternoon.

To participate in the benefit event, it costs $75 for a Murray Bay member and $150 for a non-member. The cocktail-only card is $50. “The goal is for everyone to have a great day on the course and at the party that follows,” concludes the dynamic businessman.
