The Heritage Funeral Complex is a proud sponsor of the Outcare Golf Classic
By Fred Sherwin
August 11, 2018

For the past 11 years the Outcare Foundation has provided tens of thousands of dollars in financial support to palliative care providers throughout Eastern Ontario.

The lion’s share of the funds provided are raised through two key events, the Outcare Foundation’s Black Tie Bingo, which is held in November, and the organization’s annual golf tournament which is being held on Aug. 18 at the Hammond Golf and Country Club.

Like any event of its size, the golf tournament is largely dependent on corporate sponsors, and in that respect the Outcare Foundation is fortunate to have the support of two presenting sponsors with deep roots in the local community – Grandmaitre, Virgo, Evans Lawyers/Avocats, and the Heritage Funeral Complex.

Heritage is owned and operated by the father and son team of Germain and Guy Souligny and their long-time partner Benoit Robert. Through the years they’ve supported a number of important initiatives and groups making them an important corporate citizen of the community of Orléans.

It’s been nearly two years since Heritage moved from their old location on St. Joseph Boulevard to their new digs on Taylor Creek Drive. The state of the art facility is equipped with a 300-seat chapel, two large visitation rooms, a lounge for smaller groups and a large reception room which can be rented for meetings or social occasions.

At the Heritage Funeral Complex they can also do cremations on site, making it a full service facility.

This is the third year in a row that Heritage has been a proud presenting sponsor of the Outcare Foundation Golf Classic which will be celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.

“They are an excellent organization that does a lot of good work,” says Guy Souligny. “Without their help, the level of palliative care in Eastern Ontario would not be where it is today. The tournament and its cause are a perfect fit for us.”

Outcare Foundation executive director Lisa Davey is extremely grateful for the support provided by all of their sponsors.

“It’s a bit of a cliché, but we couldn’t do the work we do without the support of sponsors like Heritage and Grandmaitre, Virgo, Evans as well as all of the golfers who play in the tournament year after year,” says Davey.

With less than two months to go before tee off time, there are still several spots available. Registration is $150 per person and includes a BBQ banquet.

Last year's event raised $54,000 net of expenses.

If you can’t make it to the tournament, you can always become a Friend of the Classic by making a donation to help send a volunteer to the Palliative Care Education Day in 2018. Each $125 raised will cover the cost of one volunteer.

Another way to support the Foundation is to take part in their online auction which kicks off on July 14 and runs until the day of the golf tournament. There will dozens of items available at a whole range of price points.
