On Tuesday, June 18, the second annual White Coat Classic presented by NCI teed off at the Loch March Golf and Country Club. Golfers were treated to a great day on the course followed by an evening of networking and dining, all in an effort to raise funds for cancer care at The Ottawa Hospital.
This year, funds raised by the White Coat Challenge members and through the White Coat Golf Classic helped to purchase an important software upgrade for the CyberKnife.
“It takes a lot of time and energy to put together such an event,” said Tim Kluke, President and CEO of The Ottawa Hospital Foundation. “We are fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with such a dedicated group including the chair of the White Coat Challenge Dave Allum, our sponsors and of course everyone who took part.”
The Ottawa Hospital Foundation launched The White Coat Campaign to support patient care and research at theOttawaHospital. Through this campaign, companies and their employees have an opportunity to raise funds to support this cause and make a lasting and tangible impact on the quality of health care in our community. Funds raised by the White Coat Golf Classic will be directed to the Ottawa Hospital Foundation in support of the White Coat Campaign.
