The winning ticket was chosen at the Foundation’s fourth annual Corporate Golf Classic held September 19th at eQuinelle Golf Club in Kemptville

OCTOBER 1, 2012 – Congratulations to Jane Adams, who will be heading to Augusta, Georgia in April for the 2013 Masters Golf Tournament!

Adams is the lucky winner of the Kemptville District Hospital (KDH) Foundation’s first annual Masters Raffle, a unique prize package that includes two entrance badges for both the Wednesday practice round and the Thursday competitive round, accommodations, airfare, car rental and more.

Foundation Executive Director John Bouza congratulates Masters Raffle winner Jane Adams

Adams, who does not consider herself lucky, nevertheless emailed her father after buying her raffle ticket with the message – “We’re going to Augusta!” When she received the phone call announcing that she had actually won, it was a “big, lovely surprise,” and she is thrilled to be taking her Dad, an avid golfer who will turn 80 that month, on the all expenses paid trip for two.

An Ottawa resident, Adams is, coincidentally, a healthcare communications and public relations specialist. Although she has no connection with KDH, she “know(s) about rural hospitals and how important it is to support them.”

The winning ticket was selected at the KDH Foundation’s fourth annual Corporate Golf Classic held September 19th at eQuinelle Golf Club in Kemptville. John Bouza, the Foundation’s Executive Director, consoles those who did not win with the information that there will be another raffle for a trip to the Master’s at next year’s tournament, and tickets will go on sale in November of this year.

Over 100 avid golfers enjoyed a sunny, if chilly, day at this year’s Corporate Golf Classic. A number of local celebrities took part, including Lowell Green, Ian Mendes and Ron Tugnutt.

While guests enjoyed a buffet meal served up at a variety of different food stations – including burgers with beer, wine and cheese, quesadillas and margaritas – John Bouza thanked the events sponsors, including Gold Sponsor O’Farrell Financial, Silver Sponsors Crain & Schooley, ZW Group, Ottawa Senators Hockey Club, Jim Perry Motor Sales, and KinLar Insulation, and Bronze Sponsors Urbandale, Nelly Van Berlo and Cruickshank.

Tournament winners with the lowest overall score were Jim Neubauer, Steve Christie and Doug Brown. Chuck Bond and Andrea Morganti took home the longest drive awards.

Golfers also had the opportunity to bid on silent auction items and enjoyed a live auction called by Kemptville realtor and practiced auctioneer, Harry Pratt. The event raised $40,000 in total, all of which will be used to purchase essential medical equipment for KDH.
