Proceeds from the 2021 Golf Getaway Lottery will be distributed to the following seven registered Canadian charities operating in Ontario:
Capital City Condors
The Capital City Condors family of ice hockey teams is a proud member of The Canadian Adapted Hockey Alliance/Alliance Candienne de Hockey Adapté, a collective of fully inclusive adapted hockey teams working together so that amazing individuals, aged 6 and above, who might not otherwise have the chance are provided the opportunity to play Canada’s game and see their hockey dreams come true! The Rotary Club of Kanata is honoured, once again, to name the Capital City Condors the primary beneficiary of proceeds derived from the Club’s Golf Getaway Lottery.
Kanata Food Cupboard
The Kanata Food Cupboard is a non-profit charitable organization providing food assistance to local individuals and families in need. Its primary mission is to provide the healthiest possible food choices by engaging and inspiring the Kanata community. The Rotary Club of Kanata is thankful for the opportunity to continue the tradition of providing financial support to this important organization during what is a unique and especially trying time for so many people.
Ottawa Community Foundation
The Ottawa Community Foundation (OCF) is one of Ottawa’s most highly regarded philanthropic organizations, working with donors and the community at large to bring about positive, systemic and sustainable change in Ottawa and beyond. The Foundation has built an enviable reputation for astute financial management, high quality donor services, strategic grant making and innovative partnerships across the nation’s capital. Proceeds received from the Rotary Club of Kanata’s 5th annual Golf Getaway Lottery will be specifically directed to the Kanata Rotary Trust Foundation to make our community better, stronger and healthier.
Ottawa Rotary Home Foundation
The Ottawa Rotary Home Foundation exists to improve the quality of life of caregivers and individuals with disabilities through a family and person-centered approach that is responsive to individual needs and offered in a dynamic and flexible way. The Foundation, now governed by a collective of committed volunteers from several Rotary clubs in the Ottawa area, offers a variety of respite programs for different groups. The Rotary Club of Kanata is proud to contribute to the success of the Foundation through the donation of proceeds from the 2021 edition of the Golf Getaway Lottery.
Royal Canadian Legion Kanata (Ontario No 638) Branch Poppy Fund
The Royal Canadian Legion was founded by Veterans for Veterans. It advocates for the care and benefits for all who served Canada and provides no-cost representation and assistance to Veterans (including currently serving Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP, and their families), whether or not they are Legion members. The Rotary Club of Kanata is grateful for the opportunity to direct Golf Getaway Lottery proceeds to Branch 638’s Poppy Fund so that the Legion can continue to help thousands of Veterans make positive changes in their lives.
The Hospital for Sick Children Foundation
The Foundation’s goals are to save lives, find new cures and provide world-class care. But they are also fighting against the limits of a 70-year-old hospital where parts of the building don’t meet modern building codes, vulnerable patients are crammed into overcrowded rooms, and outdated spaces can’t accommodate the weight of an MRI machine. A portion of the proceeds from the Golf Getaway Lottery will, therefore, be directed to SickKids VS Limits Campaign (the biggest fundraising campaign in Canadian health-care history) to build a brand-new hospital. Buy your lottery tickets today to help SickKids Hospital save lives long into the future.
Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre
Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre supports diverse communities in far west Ottawa by providing and coordinating accessible health and social services to children, youth, parents, adults and seniors. A significant portion of the proceeds from the Golf Getaway Lottery will be specifically directed to Chrysalis House, a local women’s shelter supported by the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre’s registered charity.
