WCPD serves as Silver Sponsor and participates in 25th annual event at Rideau View Golf Club

The Jewish Federation of Ottawa (JFO) raised more than $220,000 for charity this week at their 25th Annual Golf Tournament, with The Foundation (WCPD) proud to serve as a Silver Sponsor.

The event attracted more than 140 golfers and many business leaders from across Ottawa. Held at the beautiful Rideau View Golf Club, the JFO’s annual tournament is known as one of the best of its kind in the nation’s capital. It is this sharp attention to detail that has inspired so many sponsors to give generously.

“The tremendous success of our annual golf tournament is due to the incredible support of so many wonderful and generous sponsors, like The Foundation WCPD,” explained Federation’s CEO Andrea Freedman. “These are local businesses and organizations with huge hearts, who choose to make a difference in our city. We are grateful for their involvement and deeply proud of what we have achieved together.”

The annual golf tournament raises funds for programs and agencies in Ottawa such as Tamir, which assists people with developmental disabilities, the Bess and Moe Greenberg Family Hillel Lodge long-term care facility, which is a home for the aged, and Jewish Family Services, a social service agency supporting the entire city.

In the last 25 years, the tournament has raised more than $3.5 million.

For The Foundation’s part, it was proud to sponsor the registration booth as golfers first arrived at the course.

“WCPD was truly proud to return as a sponsor for this tournament,” said Peter Nicholson, the President and Founder. “The Jewish Federation of Ottawa is a pillar of this community and we are pleased to do our part, while also enjoying a gorgeous day on the golf course.”
