Golfers, community members and volunteers gathered for the OutCare Golf Classic presented by Grandmaitre Virgo Evans Lawyers/Avocats and Heritage Funeral Complex on Friday, September 21st. Now in its 11th year, you helped us raise $53,000 (after expenses) for palliative care in Eastern Ontario! View photos of the event here.
After having to postpone the tournament on its original date in August, we were fortune to have the support of our fantastic sponsors (as well as the cooperation of the weather) making the day a great success. We thank our co-presenting sponsors Grandmaitre Virgo Evans Lawyers/Avocats and Heritage Funeral Complex. We were glad to have CIBC Private Wealth Management (Timothy Orr) as our Welcome Sponsor and the Navan Lions Club as our BBQ Banquet Sponsor. Thank you as well to our Print and Digital Media sponsor Orleans Star, our Hole-in-One Sponsor RBC, and our Putting Green Sponsor Benchent (Glyn Chancey).
Leading up to the tournament, our online silent auction sponsored by the Hammond Golf Club and Hammond Bar and Grill was the most successful to date, raising over $8,000. Thank you to our prize donors for help making the auction a great success!
The funds raised will go to the OutCare Foundation which supports palliative care priorities across Eastern Ontario. With only an estimated 16-30% of Canadians able to access palliative care, there are a lot of funding needs! From equipment that offers comfort and mobility, to education on preparing for end of life, or launching new programs that support family members, donations to OutCare make a real and meaningful difference.
Generous individual donors helped fund bursaries for palliative care education through donations made to the Friends of the Classic.
OutCare is especially grateful to John Bradley for his unfailing support of this great event.
