The Memorial Charity Golf Tournament
"The Memorial” is a culmination of two events, Tori's Helping Hand and Refuse 2 Lose and continues to be a tribute to the Carswell family and the Jude family. The Memorial is an event celebrating the life of Tori Carswell and Bryce Jude which continues their legacy and support of Candlelighters with proceeds going to Tori’s Helping Hand, and Refuse 2 Lose campaigns.
The Memorial Committee is proud to announce the Memorial Golf Tournament raised an amazing $162,100 to date for Candlelighters support programs. Words cannot describe our gratitude and pride to have such a large group of people support a charity that is so near and dear to our hearts. Without your support and generosity this would have never been possible. We look forward to hosting another successful event next year and increasing our charitable contributions towards well deserved Candlelighters' programs.
Please consider becoming part of the The Memorial, where you can make a difference for families that could use a helping hand right now!
"We are so proud to be the recipient charity of this amazing tournament, “The Memorial”, held in honour of Tori Carswell and Bryce Jude. They touched many in their short lives, and the spirit of their smiles lives on at The Canadian Golf & Country Club. Mark, Gail and the entire team at the CGCC ensure that young cancer patients and their families feel the kindness and generosity of those tremendous supporters of this event. Through “Tori’s Helping Hand”, Candlelighters is able to help not only those youngsters in the palliative stages of their disease, but also helps every family that needs to travel out of Ottawa to access care and treatment. “Refuse2Lose Team Bryce” gives families of children with cancer an amazing opportunity to create lasting and loving memories in Suite Seats, a private suite located at Canadian Tire Centre, home to the Ottawa Senators Hockey Club and the place to see a concert here in the national capital region.
Candlelighters exists to enrich the lives of children, and their families, coping with childhood cancer and “The Memorial Golf Tournament” helps ensure that 100% of children with cancer get the support they need! We couldn’t do it with out you ~ Thanks for Keeping our Kids Smiling!!"

185 golfers played 18 holes on the Canadian's 27 Hole Golf Course in just over 4 hours on a perfect Friday afternoon in August. After golf, everyone feasted on Chef Cunningham's multiple food stations that received rave reviews! Fantastic silent and live auction items helped add to the great dollars raised for Candlelighters.
The Memorial Committee is proud to announce the 2015 Memorial Golf Tournament raised an amazing $42,000 for Candlelighters. Without the support of our participants and the generosity of our sponsors, this would have never been possible. We look forward to increasing our contributions next year!
