Regional hospital foundation raises a new fundraising record

There was no shortage of generosity at the Owen Sound Hospital Foundation’s 29th Annual Charity Golf Classic held at Legacy Ridge Golf Club on August 28th. This year’s tournament has set a new event fundraising record, an outstanding $95,000!

With a sold out tournament, impressive community support and an exceptional amount of enthusiasm, golfers enjoyed a day on the course raising funds for the Owen Sound Regional Hospital Foundation. Funds were raised through golf registrations, sponsorships, on-course activities, generous donors and an on-line auction, all in support of the event.

“Thanks to all of our golfers, sponsors, volunteers and everyone who helped make the day an amazing success,” said Denise Reid, Chair of the organizing committee. “We are thrilled to have raised $95,000 in support of healthcare in our community, especially with the considerations made for the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“What a fantastic day of golf in support of a great cause.” said Amy McKinnon, Executive Director of OSRHF. “Heartfelt thanks to all the golfers, sponsors, and Denise Reid and her planning committee. We are overwhelmed by the support of everyone involved. During these unconventional and unpredictable times having support for priority needs of the Hospital is more important than ever. Thank you all.”

Major sponsors of the 2020 Charity Golf Classic were Jim Gardhouse Chrysler, Leeder & Associates – RBC Wealth Management, Manulife Securities – Martin DesJardine, Owen Sound Medical Imaging and ScotiaWealth Management. More than 50 local businesses provided sponsorships and prizes. This event would not be made possible without the support of our community.

Since its inception 29 years ago, the Charity Golf Classic has raised over $1.3 million to support the purchase of new medical equipment for the Owen Sound Regional Hospital. A huge thank you to everyone involved.
