Paul Rushforth Charity Golf Tournament
A Message from Paul Rushforth
On July 8, 2016, my company hosted the 5th Annual Paul Rushforth Charity Golf Tournament in support of The Ottawa Senators Foundation and the Orléans-Cumberland Community Resource Centre. With the support of countless local companies and celebrities, we were able to raise over $39,500, bringing our 5 year total to $124,800. With the help of a great team, super sponsors, amazing auctioneer Liam Maguire and a wonderful MC Angie Poirier, we were able to enjoy this awesome day! The day included 148 golfers, over 190 dinner participants, a Million Dollar Shootout sponsored by GGFL, Charter Professional Accountants and First Avenue Advisory Raymond James, each golfer received sound system speaker, and countless great memories.
July 7, 2017 marks our 6th Annual Charity Golf Tournament and our goal is still the same, which is to help two important organizations who help so many individuals in our communities. Once again this year, we will be raising funds to assist The Ottawa Senators Foundation and the Orléans-Cumberland Community Resource Centre. All golfers can expect to receive an amazing gift, great food and drinks on many of the holes, dinner, an opportunity to network with many businesses and community organizations, along with the opportunity to rub shoulders with celebrities. It goes without saying that we aim to make more impactful relationships, greater memories and raise more money for these vital community charities. Of course we hope it will be another beautiful sunny shiny day.
Returning once again as our 2017 Golf Tournament Title Sponsor, will be Allan & Eric Foget co-owners of Sobeys (Orleans and Kanata). The Million Dollar Shootout will be a highlighted once again in 2017, where eight golfers will be randomly selected to shoot for a hole-in-one and a chance to win $1,000,000! So practice the long ball because unlike the saying “You drive for show and putt for dough” – it’s your longer range game that could bring home the cash. We are looking for your support. Please help us raise some much needed funds for two very important organizations, allowing us to leave an ever lasting impact on the entire Ottawa community. So, join us on July 7, 2017 at GreyHawk Golf Club. We can’t wait to see you on the links!
