The Society of Energy Professionals is the newest Platinum Sponsor for the upcoming Gran Fondo event this summer. The union that donated $10,000 to the Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation fundraiser is now joining Re/Max Land Exchange Ltd. and Bruce Power in their Platinum level sponsorship, become a route sponsor for the 110km Pretty in Paisley route.

Eric Tiisler from the Society of Energy Professionals said the Saugeen Memorial Hospital is a cornerstone for the community. “Our hospital is a very important component of our community,” he said, adding, “part of our Foundation is to ensure locally that we support initiatives that span a number of activities and this one resonated with us because it involves sport, it involves a bit of a competition; but also there was an aspect of funding the hospital as well.”
