With the $115,000 raised in this year’s event, the Bell/Ottawa Senators Charity Golf Classic has now raised more than $965,000 over its 14-year history. Of the monies raised Friday, $50,000 of the funds are destined for CHEO and $65,000 for the Ottawa Senators Foundation to support registered charitable organizations whose programs focus on improving the quality of life for underprivileged children and youth.
Bell Canada and the Ottawa Senators Foundation announced in May 2006 a commitment to raise $1 million for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) over a five-year period. The 14th Annual Bell/Ottawa Senators Charity Golf Classic, which is the club’s first official public function of the season, is one of the events that will help Bell and the Ottawa Senators Foundation fulfill the million-dollar goal.
