Youville Centre Donors Love to Golf!

September 24th, 2012

We are very fortunate to have people such as Hassa Mirchandani and his team at Bytown Travel Ltd., the Knights of Columbus Holy Redeemer Council # 9544 and the Knights of Columbus of Divine Infant Parish in our donor community. Each year these three groups each host a golf tournament, and Youville Centre’s young mothers and children are grateful to benefit from their charitable efforts. What better way to raise funds and awareness about a charitable cause than to get some fresh air, exercise and socialize with friends and colleagues. Thank you to everyone who participated in these three tournaments!

Recently, Stephen Dulude and Clarence Maheral of the Knights of Columbus Holy Redeemer Council #9544 dropped by the Centre to deliver the proceeds from this year’s Rita Maheral Memorial Charity Golf Tournament. We are quite blessed to be a chosen charity of this group of Knights. Thank you!

Last but not least, the Knights of Columbus of Divine Infant Parishalso held a golf tournament, this one was in support of both Youville Centre and Miriam Centre. This generous group plans to make it an annual event so we look forward to it next year! With a great turnout, fun was had by all and they raised over $7,000 to be divided among our two charities. Many thanks to the event organizers and sponsors, and to everyone who attended. Please see below for a few photos from the tournament!

If you are interested in participating in any of these golf tournaments next  year, please contact us at (613) 231-5150 Ext. 128 and we would be happy to connect you with our generous donors!

Happy Golfing!
