MONTREAL, Canada - After playing in the 2011 CN Canadian Women’s Open last August, Duke University junior golfer Laetitia Beck was invited back to Montreal recently for the Jewish General Hospital’s 20th annual Golf Tournament and fundraiser in Montreal, Canada.

Beck became the first Israeli to ever compete in a LPGA event last August in Montreal and won the hearts of the local fans and tournament personnel at the Hillsdale Golf and Country Club.  At the fundraiser along with Beck were many famous Canadians including former Senator Leo Kolber and former Prime Minister Jean Chretien. 

Over the course of the weekend, Beck lent both her charisma and skills to various events, culminating in a golf tournament that has become a staple of the community and raised more than $13 million since its inception.
 
While Beck’s presence stirred up interest from a younger demographic, there was also a steady stream of community support for the tournament itself. In all, $1.5 million was collected for the Jewish General Hospital. These funds will pave the way for the acquisition of a pulmonary hypertension laboratory for the emergency department.

Beck, who is a native of Caesarea, Israel, is coming off finishing her sophomore season with the Duke women’s golf team.  She posted a 74.97 stroke average, had three top 10 finishes and five top 20 placements during the season.  Beck is a two-time All-ACC selection and was the 2011 ACC Rookie of the Year.
