Kiwanis & Friends Golf Tournament

Monday, September 17, 2018

A very successful event was held at the Techumseh Golf Course on Monday, September 17th, thanks to the generosity of our corporate member James Maxwell of the Investment Partners Fund Inc., and, Pierre Fortin of Groupe Fortin.

A good turnout of participants enjoyed the perfect weather on the golf course, followed by a delicious beef dinner, and the company of good friends - new and old. 

The final amount is still to be calculated but we are pleased to estimate results of $25,000.  Final report to follow soon.

Proceeds of the tournament will help support the projects of the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa.

20th Annual Kiwanis Golf Tournament

Since the first Kiwanis Charity Golf Tournament in 1998 the tournament has raised nearly $1,200,000. All of the net proceeds will be distributed to the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa’s charitable organization with a focus on youth homelessness in Ottawa, a growing and disturbing trend. The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa has made it a major focus to work with key stakeholders that provide support and housing for Ottawa’s most vulnerable homeless population.

The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa ran its 20th Annual  Charity Golf Tournament at the Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club, . The net proceeds will be distributed to support various deserving Kiwanis service projects which support the Kiwanis theme of “One Can Make a Difference”.

The Club would like to thank our sponsors for the event, who were crticial to its success.

A 'little' bit of rain during the day did not dampen the spirits of the golfers.
