Full Field at Serge Giroux Golf Dream Classic

Jeremie Lamothe with his parents Annie and Jason.

The PGA of Ottawa held their annual charity initiative – The Serge Giroux Golf Dream Classic – at the Rivermead Golf Club on Tuesday, June 26 under a bright sun with a full field of golf professionals and amateur golfers in attendance.

The annual goal for PGA of Ottawa golf professionals, sponsors and invited guests is to raise money to be used in granting a “Golf Dream” to children with life-threatening illnesses. Honourees Jeremie Lamothe and Anthony Sherrington, along with their families, will be the beneficiaries of this year’s fundraiser with a trip to Orlando, Florida later in the year.

Jeremie Lamothe is 10 years old and attends Eardley Elementary School in Aylmer, Quebec where he enjoys art classes. Jeremie is recovering from aggressive medical treatments to remove a brain tumour first diagnosed five years ago. An avid golfer and bowler, Jeremie is very upbeat and has a goal in life “to own a wrecking yard where I can make money by stripping vehicles for parts.” His parents Annie and Jason indicated that this goal in life has been consistent for many years. Along with his parents, Jeremie will be accompanied on his Dream trip to Orlando by his younger sister Jessica and older brother Vincent.

Unable to be in attendance at this year’s event was 13-year old Anthony Sherrington from Sudbury, Ontario. Anthony has been off treatment for the past year for a Ewing Sarcoma and word is that he was thrilled to be selected for a “Dream trip” to Orlando along with his parents Madeline and Derrin and his sisters Erin and Emma.

Members of the PGA of Ottawa are thrilled to be involved with this community fundraiser now in its 12th year and grateful for the continued support in their fundraising by sponsors including Jim Bourchier,  Snelling Paper (Randy Graham), the Dairy Farmers of Canada, Clark, Shih and Associates (Peter Clark) and Bleeker Stereo and TV.
