1-800-Got-Junk? Sponsors Putting Green as OutCare Foundation golf tournament raises $50K for east end hospice

Friday, September 18, 2015

One hundred and forty-eight golfers teed off at the Hammond Golf Course on Aug. 21 to help raise money for a new palliative care hospice at the Residence Saint-Louis in Orleans.

By the time the final putt had dropped into the 18th hole, more than $50,000 had been raised, topping last year 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.

The 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.

This 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.

J.T. 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.

The money raised will be used to help equip and furnish the new palliative care hospice at the Residence Saint-Louis in Convent Glen.

The hospice will initially provide day program services for francophones receiving palliative at home, but there is hope it could grow into a full-service hospice similar to the May Court Hospice in Old Ottawa South.
