OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators announced today that the 13th Annual Bell/Senators Charity Golf Classic held today at The Marshes Golf Club raised $100,000 to support the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and the Ottawa Senators Foundation. Of the monies raised today, $50,000 of the funds are destined for CHEO and $50,000 for the Ottawa Senators Foundation to support registered charitable organizations whose programs focus on improving the quality of life for underprivileged children and youth.
For 13 years, Bell Canada and the Ottawa Senators have partnered on various projects in the effort to enrich the lives of children and youth in our community, and this event has now raised more than $750,000.
Bell Canada and the Ottawa Senators announced in May a commitment to raise $1 million for CHEO over the next five years. The Bell/Senators Charity Golf Classic is one of the events that will help Bell and the Ottawa Senators fulfill the million-dollar goal.
