OutCare Foundation golf tournament raises $50K for palliative care
By Fred Sherwin
hundred and forty-eight golfers teed off at the Hammond
Golf Course on Aug. 21 to help raise money for palliative
care in Eastern Ontario.
the time the final putt had dropped into the 18th hole,
more than $50,000 had been raised, topping last year's
total by over $14,000, and putting a huge smile on the
face of tournament organizer and OutCare Foundation president
John Bradley and executive director Lisa Davey.
OutCare Golf Classic is the primary fundraising event
for the OutCare Foundation which raises money to support
community-based healthcare across Eastern Ontario, and
palliative care in particular.
year's tournament had a decidedly east end flavour with
a number of local businesses coming out in support of
the event including Dust Evans Grandmaitre Lawyers/Avocates
and Heritage Funeral Home which stepped up to the tee box
as this year's title sponsors.
Bradley's Country Convenience Store in Navan was the presenting
sponsor; 1-800-GOT-JUNK was the putting green sponsor;
and CIBC Wood Gundy was the Welcome sponsor.
