The Oakville Club Annual Men’s Golf Tournament in support of the Ian Anderson House generated over $15,000 for this worthy cause. It was a beautiful day at the Glen Abbey Golf Course for a game of golf and the Oakville Club men arrived with enthusiasm, open hearts and pocketbooks, and their golf clubs to donate money, to play golf and to support the Ian Anderson dream.
Each golfer received a hat and lunch to be enjoyed in the golf cart with their team. A delightful dinner, stories of the “missed hole-in-one” and the awards for the winners were great ways to end to end a perfect day.
The Oakville Club was formed over a century ago on the bank of Sixteen Mile Creek in downtown Oakville. The Oakville Club has always been a place for families to meet and participate in sports, recreational activities and social activities. It is a place for camaraderie and friendship, and while activities are always a draw, it is also a hub for community connection and fulfillment. The Oakville Club Annual Men’s Golf Tournament in support of the Ian Anderson House is but one example of the reaching out that exemplifies the Oakville Club members.
The Ian Anderson House, Ontario’s first in-resident cancer hospice offers, without charge, quality end-of-life palliative care in a home-like setting to individuals diagnosed with terminal cancer and a limited life expectancy and the home understands the need to support the family as a unit during this time.
To provide the high quality of 24 hour care, the Ian Anderson House relies on the generosity of individuals, service clubs and local businesses and the Oakville Club was happy to be a part of these fundraising efforts.
