The proceeds from the 2013 ScotiaBank Serge Giroux Classic Pro-Am were officially handed over on Friday, October 4th.

In a mid-day ceremony at The Marshes at Brookstreet in Kanata, the facilities’ Vice-President of Golf & Special Projects, with his Head Professional Andrew Donaldson alongside, presented a cheque for $30,000 to Luke Saunders (President) and Harry Hereford (Executive Director) of the PGA of Canada Ottawa Valley Zone.

The funds were generated at the very well-run ScotiaBank Serge Giroux Dream Classic Pro-Am held at The Marshes on May 21st.

This was the first year the tournament was hosted by The Marshes for the Zone and the new arrangement was a huge success.

The funds will help fulfill the wishes of young people struggling with life-threatening illnesses. Each year a group of selected children and their families travel to Florida with a support team for a trip of a lifetime.

Since 2000, 33 candidates and families have taken the trips. They are selected from the National Capital Region.

Scotiabank came on board this year as the major sponsor, with long-time  supporter Snelling Paper & Sanitation as the Presenting Sponsor.  Other sponsors who came on board for this inaugural event at The Marshes were the Dairy Farmers of Canada; Royal LePage – Gale Real Estate; Grey, Clark, Shih and Associates; Car Canada and the Ottawa PGA.
