Over the past eight years, we have had the pleasure of working closely with the community, helping make many goals and dreams come true. In that time, we’ve climbed to the top of the residential sales chart, becoming the #1 Residential Sales Team in Ottawa*. During our span of success, we have made a conscious effort to give back to our community and those who have supported us.
This summer we would like to make a real difference, helping a cause that is near and dear to all of us.
Do It For Daron (D.I.F.D) is a youth drive program championed by the Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health. The campaign is focused on raising awareness and inspiring conversations about youth mental health. Created by friends and family of Daron Richardson, who lost her life to suicide at the young age of 14. D.I.F.D is inspired by hope for a future where young people will reach out for help without fear or shame. D.I.F.D. supports programs and initiatives aimed at transforming youth mental health.
On July 3rd Paul Rushforth Real Estate will be holding our 1st Annual Charity Golf Tournament in support of Do It For Daron and Youth Mental Health, for the Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health. The event will be held at GreyHawk Golf Club and will feature celebrities like Boston Bruins Assistant Captain Chris Kelly, Ottawa Senator Zenon Konopka, Hall of Famer Denis Potvin, Retired NHL players Dan McGillis and Fred Brathwaite, Brent Wallace of TSN, Ian Mendes of Sportsnet, Stuntman Stu of Majic 100, Steve Gregory of CHUM Radio, Lee Versage of Team 1200, Red Allen of Majic 100, Kurt Stoodley of CTV Morning Live and hockey personality Liam Maguire to name a few.
When the golfers arrive they will be treated to a pair of Footjoy golf shoes, a golf cart, lunch, food and beverages on every other hole, entry into all of the contests and last but not least dinner. This year’s contests will include a series of hole-in-one prizes. The prizes awarded for sinking a hole-in-one are 2 trips, $10,000 and a Nissan vehicle.
