There’s an old saying that it takes a village to raise a child. The same could be said about building a Habitat for Humanity home.

On August 18, 150 golfers gathered at the Hammond Golf Club to take part in the 10th edition of the OutCare Golf Classic presented by Grandmaitre Virgo Evans Lawyers/Avocats and the Heritage Funeral Complex.

The sold-out event raised over $55,000 for palliative care in Eastern Ontario thanks to the generous donations of 44 sponsors and over 45 donors.

In addition to a great day on the links, golfers had the chance to win two tickets to the NHL Winter Classic – generously donated by Vezina Opticians and nearly impossible to find. The winner was congratulated by Montréal Canadiens head coach, Claude Julien, whose team will take on the Ottawa Senators at this year’s outdoor Classic.

“It’s a great day in support of a great cause,” explained John Bradley, the event chairman and past chair of the OutCare Foundation. “I can’t believe this was the 10th edition. This year’s event was especially meaningful because of this milestone. I think everyone knew that, which is why we had such tremendous support.”

The funds raised will be used help purchase equipment that offers comfort and mobility; provide education on preparing for end of life; and launching new programs that support family members of dying relatives. Individual donors were also very generous funding 15 bursaries for palliative care volunteers through dona-tions and pledges made to the Friends of the Classic.
