With this total, the Sens Foundation and Bell are now one step closer to reaching their $1-million commitment to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). More than 160 golfers, along with members of the Ottawa Senators Hockey Club attended this year’s event. The 17th Annual Bell/Ottawa Senators Charity Golf Classic is the club’s first official public function of the 2010-11 season.
“On behalf of the Sens Foundation, I want to thank Bell, its staff and volunteers for their hard work and, most importantly, the community for supporting this great event.” said Danielle Robinson, president, Sens Foundation. “Thanks to events like this, we will be able to again make a significant contribution in support of quality healthcare for the children and youth of eastern Ontario and western Quebec.”
“In five short years, Bell working together with the Ottawa Senators Hockey Club and the Sens Foundation has been able to provide much needed financial support to one of the most important institutions in the community - CHEO.” said Gary Cameron, vice-president, professional services, Bell Business Markets. “I am extremely proud to be associated with the Bell/Ottawa Senators Charity Golf Classic and of what it means to the children and families served by our Children’s Hospital.”
The Bell/Ottawa Senators Charity Golf Classic has collected more than $1.34 million over its 17-year history. Of the monies raised today, $50,000 is destined for CHEO and $70,000 for the Sens Foundation to support registered charitable organizations that have programs to improve the quality of life for underprivileged children and youth.
