WebMarketers couldn’t be happier to report on the outstanding success of the inaugural Ottawa Corporate Cup, which brought together local businesses and nonprofit organizations for a day of competitive golf and philanthropic giving. The esteemed Loch March Golf & Country Club hosted a remarkable day on Tuesday, August 22, 2023, when 18 companies displayed their golfing talent in support of nine worthy Ottawa organizations.
A little bit about the Ottawa Corporate Cup
The Ottawa Corporate Cup is a yearly charity golf competition that offers businesses the chance to compete and display their golfing prowess while also benefiting a number of local charities through the Ottawa Community Foundation. Four-person teams made up of board members, staff, charity members, and business owners participate in the competition.
Every company that takes part fields a four-person team and selects a charity to sponsor. The teams compete in a 2-man scramble format, with the team score being the sum of the twosomes’ individual scores.
Fundraising with Purpose
In its first year, The Ottawa Corporate Cup raised an incredible $36,000 for nine local charities in addition to challenging the golfing prowess of several local businesses. The funds raised were distributed as follows:
Donation of $18,000 to the winning team’s charity
Donation of $12,000 to the charity of the second-place team
Donation of $6,000 to the charity of the third-place team.
A minimum $2,000 gift to each participating team
