Inaugural 2004 Tournament A Huge Success


Tori Carswell Memorial Golf Tournament raises $18,000 for Ottawa NRF and Children’s Wish.

On Saturday, September 4, a picture perfect day, the 1st Annual Tori Carswell Memorial Golf Tournament was held at the Canadian Golf & Country Club.

144 golfers gathered to spend a day with friends and family while honouring a special, young girl who passed away from cancer in January 2004. Golfers were also given an opportunity to win some fabulous prizes including a new Ford Mustang Convertible. At the end of the day a total of $18,000 dollars was raised for the Ottawa Neuroblastoma Research Fund and the Children’s Wish Foundation.

We want to thank everyone for attending and making the 1st annual Tori Carswell Memorial golf tournament such a success.
