2015 Golf Classic Raises Over $110,000!


On September 10, 2015, more than 130 golfers and over 40 volunteers came together in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities® Atlantic at the 18th annual Ronald McDonald House® Golf Classic. Although the weatherman called for lots of rain, it turned out to be a beautiful day for golf at Glen Arbour Golf Course.

Participants enjoyed a fun-filled day of golfing and on-course activities made possible by the support of 60 sponsors from across the Maritimes; including the presenting sponsor, McDonald’s Maritime Owner/Operators.

The fun didn’t stop after the round of golf. The evening’s events featured a Million Dollar Shootout, Silent Auction, Dinner and Live Auction, all led by emcee Cyril Lunney from CTV. The dinner was highlighted by StFX student Jason Thorpe’s personal story about the role Ronald McDonald House played in his life. Jason and his family started coming to the House when he was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of 9.

Thanks to the generosity of sponsors, golfers, and volunteers, the Ronald McDonald House® Golf Classic raised over $110,000 to help keep families close when they need it most.

Be sure to save the date for next year’s 19th annual Golf Classic taking place on September 15th, 2016! To get involved in next year’s event, contact Kim Elliott at 902-482-1249 or kim@rmhatlantic.ca
