A New Look in 2019
In 2019, and after more than 20 years, the Bell Ottawa Senators Charity Golf Classic was abridged from the traditional 18-hole event and reformatted to an afternoon 9-hole golf tournament preceded by a substantive sit-down lunch reception and player introductions. Golfers then enjoyed great course conditions at The Marshes Golf Club, despite the cooler temperatures and light rain.
A new partnership with the Brookstreet Hotel offered the opportunity for the Ottawa Senators Foundation to unite with the perennially successful Lumière Charity Gala. Following the round, guests of the Charity Golf Classic enjoyed cocktails and canapés in the Clubhouse before they transitioned to a lively evening of food, wine and fireworks at the Brookstreet‘s “Fire & Ice” Lumière Gala.
We look forward to improving and building on this year’s achievements as we move into the second year of this format. We hope you will consider joining us in September 2020!
