About the Tournament and the Cause
Now in its eighth year, the Y Golf Classic has established itself as the ‘go to’ event of the season, all in the name of a worthy cause. This year's tournament will take on Monday September 18, 2017 at the Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club for the second consecutive year. Last year's event was a complete sell out and raised $206,000 in NET proceeds!
Each golfer will enjoy unlimited access to the Club House, tips from a golf pro on the driving grange, green fees and carts, lunch, a cocktail reception, dinner, golfer’s tournament gifts, opportunities for networking, and chances to win great prizes.
By sponsoring the Y Golf Classic, you are aligning yourself with one of the most respected and recognized charities in our community, and will have the opportunity to develop relationships with other business and community leaders from across our region. The Y Golf Classic has raised almost $1 million in net proceeds to date, with every dollar being put to work within our local community.
All funds raised by the tournament will help provide subsidies to Y programs where the need is greatest. From swimming lessons and childcare, to youth leadership programs and emergency housing, above all else, our mission at the Y is to ensure no one is ever turned away from accessing our services due to financial constraints. This understandably creates a financial disparity, and the Y Golf Classic is our single biggest fundraising event to help ensure we can continue to fulfill our mission.
