With a sold out tournament, huge community support and an exceptional amount of enthusiasm, golfers enjoyed a day on the course raising funds for the Owen Sound Regional Hospital Foundation. By the end of the day, it was announced that over $90,000 was raised to support priority projects at Owen Sound Regional Hospital. Funds were raised through golf registrations, sponsorships, on-course activities, and donations inspired by the Charity Golf Classic.

“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 over $90,000 in support of healthcare in our community.”

“What a fantastic day of golf in support of priority needs at the Owen Sound Regional Hospital” said Amy McKinnon, Executive Director of OSRHF. “Heartfelt thanks to the golfers, sponsors, Denise Reid and her planning committee, and the day of volunteers for an absolutely terrific day. We are overwhelmed with the support of the golfers, sponsors and donors.”
