Eighth Annual 2011 Tournament

The 8th Annual Tori Carswell Memorial Golf Tournament was held on Saturday, August 27th, 2011 at the Canadian Golf and Country Club. All proceeds from the day were donated to Tori's Helping Hand. Tori’s Helping Hand was established in 2005, and is part of the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Support Programs Inc. This program provides funds to palliative care oncology children and their families, as well as to families whose children require a transplant. The money for palliative children will help the families provide much needed comfort in their children’s last days. This comfort might come in the way of a comfortable chair, a spa visit, a puppy, etc.

It was an enjoyable day for all. The weather was perfect and so was the event. $35,117.00 was raised which brought the funds raised to date to over $300,000. Thanks to the golfers, sponsors and the volunteers who made this such a big success.

The evening was MC'd by Michael O'Byrne from CTV. Michael's expert auctioneering brought in many dollars for the charity! There was a wonderful and heartfelt speech by Liliane Hajjar. Liliane knows first hand how Candlelighters and Tori's Helping Hand can help a famiy in need.
