Ottawa golfers helping food bank
The Ottawa Chapter is well underway with preparations for its major networking event of the summer, the annual golf tournament.

Returning again to the Canadian Golf and Country Club in Ashton, the tournament takes place on Fri., Aug. 26. The board of directors has chosen the Ottawa Food Bank to receive a portion of the proceeds from this year’s tournament. There will also be a food drive held on site during tournament day.  

This year’s tournament will have an early start, with registration at 8 a.m. and a shotgun start at 10. The day of golfing includes a light breakfast, a putting contest, a full round of 18 holes with cart, dinner at 4 p.m., musical entertainment, as well as many opportunities to network with your peers. Trophies will be awarded for the longest drive for a male and female golfers, along with best foursome. Sponsorship packages are available, beginning at $675, including golf. A wide variety of sponsorship opportunities are available.

The tournament this year is also open to golf enthusiasts who are not yet members, but who will have the opportunity to learn of the benefits of joining Landscape Ontario.

Find your foursome and come out and enjoy the day knowing you are giving to a worthwhile cause of the Ottawa Food Bank, along with a day of endless networking opportunities and golfing enjoyment. For more information, contact chapter coordinator Martha Walsh mwalsh@landscapeontario.com.
