CAA South Central Ontario's charity golf tournament may have been low on birdies, but it did drive in the dollars to support SickKids Foundation.
The third annual event took place Tuesday August 30th, raising close to $88,000 in charitable funds for SickKids' Centre for Brain and Behaviour.
The tournament marks the third time Angus Glen Golf Club has hosted the event which featured not only an incredible day of golf for sponsors and honoured guests, but a raffle, silent and a live auction. The day was highlighted by a moving speech from the Doyle Family. The family, including Dad Declan, Mom Cari and daughter Marlow, all hushed the hall full of enthusiastic golfers and sponsors when they shared their harrowing story of how SickKids helped them after the birth of their daughter. Marlow had suffered a stroke straight after birth and had a lengthy stay in the hospital. But thanks to the medical experts at SickKids, Marlow is now a smiling, wonderfully healthy little girl.
