Seventh Annual 2010 Tournament

The 7th Annual Tori Carswell Memorial Golf Tournament was held on Saturday, August 28th, 2010 at the Canadian Golf and Country Club. It was a gorgeous, sunny day, as always, thanks to our Angel Tori. This year we raised $33,116, which brings the total raised to date to $266,231, through this golf tournament, donations from Air Canada, The Kim Oswick Memorial Golf Tournament, The Delphi Group Annual Softball tournament and other donations. All funds have been donated to Tori’s Helping Hand, which is a program within the Candlelighters’ Amenities Fund. Tori’s Helping Hand, provides financial suppport to families whose children are in a palliative care stage of their cancer.

We thank our golfers and sponsors who come back year after year to support Candlelighters and Tori's Helping Hand. Because of you we have been able to raise over 1/4 of a million dollars! To check out all these generous sponsors, go to Sponsors link. Paul and I couldn't run this tournament without our many volunteers who help out before the tournament and on the day. Thanks goes to: Anne Richard, Anne Waters, Barb Francey, Brenda Tirrell, Bruce Graham, Cindy MacLean, Claire Proulx, Courtney Lyon, Danielle McCaughey, Elaine Carswell, Emma Maclean, Erma Richard, Gerry Watkins, John Rodenburg, Bobbie Carswell, Karen Hanna, Kelly Morrison, Ken Gourlay, Kerry Butler, Laurie Graham, Lee Carrier, Ross Tirrell, Steph Tirrell, Nouha Fakhouri and Zerman Harrison

Our evening program was jam packed as usual and lots of fun thanks to our MC JR from the Team 1200, who can always get people laughing and singing!. The evening wouldn't be complete without a guest speaker. This year we had my friend Nouha Fakhouri say a few words. I met Nouha at CHEO when her daughter Maria was going through cancer treatments at the same time Tori was. Nouha gave a heartfelt and honest speech about Maria's cancer, Candlelighters and Tori. You're the best Nouha!
