Have you ever watched in anticipation as the winner of the Master’s in Augusta, Georgia receives THE ‘green jacket’ in front of the world?  A local business has challenged area businesses to a silent auction of the Seaforth Country Classic ‘blue jacket’.  This Huron County business has started the bidding at $1,000.00 to have the rights to present the Seaforth Country Classic 2011 Champion’s Blue Jacket complete with his company logo on the jacket and with international media coverage. This is your company’s chance to be the sponsor of the ‘Blue Jacket’ that will be presented August 21st, 2011 to the Seaforth Country Classic Champion. All proceeds go to our charity, the Gateway Rural Health Research Institute, after logo/jacket costs are taken off. Send your bid and all your related company information to info@seaforthcountryclassic.com before August 10th.   Help out our charity and receive great media coverage at the same time!



The Gateway Rural Health Research Institute  (Gateway), a not for profit corporation, is the first community driven institute of its kind in Canada dedicated  to research healthcare effecting residents in rural communities.  Recognizing the urgency of developing local initiatives to confront health issues relevant to rural living, community members in Huron County have created this rural research, educational, academic and teaching centre to organize and co-ordinate programs for clinical research on rural health issues. www.gatewayresearch.ca   Huron, Perth, Grey, and Bruce Counties will benefit greatly from this Institute.  Gateway will help our area to attract healthcare professionals and educate home-grown students, who will in turn remain in our area. Gateway is the Charity of Choice for the Seaforth Country Classic. In two years we have raised over $40,000.00 for our charities! Your support through sponsorship helps raise funds for this fantastic rural health initiative. It also promotes your company to local and worldwide audiences opening doors for more recognition that otherwise is hard to achieve.
