Throughout the year, the Renfrew Victoria Hospital Foundation hosts a number of Signature Events including:


Friday September 17, 2021 was a gorgeous fall day and the PERFECT day for our 23rd Annual RVH GOLF CLASSIC.

Thanks to our wonderful RVH Golf Classic Sponsors all of our 2021 Golf participants were treated to an amazing day raising funds for our RVH Emergency Department.


Our 2021 RVH Golf Classic is celebrated its 23rd year. Founded in 1998 this annual tournament is a sell-out and has raised almost $1 Million, impacting the lives of thousands in our region.  Funds raised at our 2021 RVH Golf Classic will be directed to our EMERGENCY ROOM project.  The RVH Emergency Department is an extremely critical department at RVH and sees over 30,000 patients per year.  The Emergency Department is over 20 years old this year so requires essential upgrades to ensure our medical team can provide the best in care, close to home for our patients.

Our 2021 RVH Golf Classic was a sell out once again and participants had an amazing day of great golf, spectacular weather, gorgeous scenery and delicious eats!


This year’s event, saw our reigning Champions DI & DOCs defeated by not ONE but TWO teams.  Congratulations to our 2021 RVH GOLF CLASSIC CHAMPIONS!

The 2021 RVH Golf Classic also had an inaugural award; The RVH FOUNDATION AWARD for the team with the most ENTHUSIASTIC and SPIRITED GOLF attitude!  And the First team to receive this award…

A great day was had by all!

The day started with Coffee and Muffins for all from TIM HORTON’S and then the management and staff at the Renfrew Golf Club provided all the golfers with a bag lunch on the course.

Special thanks to JESSE the BACKYARD GOURMET BBQ for providing a delicious take home dinner from his food truck for all of our golfers.

A special SHOUT OUT to J&J CHOCOLATE SENSATIONS for providing DELICIOUS Butter tarts for a special dessert treat!

Of course our day could not have been a success without a dedicated team of volunteers who were on hand to watch our Hole in One attempts and to man our PUTTING CONTEST.  Special thanks to: Elizabeth and Paige for chairing out Putting Contest, Anne, Karen and Sandi for hoping to see someone win the CAR sponsored by Mack MacKenzie Motors, Gladys and Doug for the Hole in One witnessing on Hole 4 for a gift package sponsored by Mack MacKenzie Motors, Brenda and Sharon who were witnessing on Hole 17 for the Hole in One Gift package by Mack MacKenzie Motors and to Brokerlink who sponsored and were there to witness what they hoped would be a HOLE in ONE for $10,000 on Hole 2 along with a gift package by Mack MacKenzie Motors.  Unfortunately no Hole in One’s were recorded but there were a few close attempts!

Tree of Lights

The 31st  year of our the RVH Foundation Tree of Lights tradition is planned for Friday December 3rd.

Some of the program will be brought you to via our RVH Foundation Facebook page  RVHFOUNDATION and will be followed by the LIVE LIGHTING of our RVH Foundation Tree in Low Square.  This portion of the program will be brought to you LIVE via FACEBOOK.

Our community tree is lit with the glow of “LIGHTS OF LOVE” purchased in memory or in honour of our loved ones and brings the true spirit of the season in a colourful  tribute.  Lights of Love can be purchased on line through our website or by calling the RVH Foundation office at 613-432-4851 ext 263, 312, 276, or 868.  The LIGHT of LOVE names will be depicted  on the tree and will be on display the night of the official lighting and then will be moved to be featured in the Gazebo in the Healing Garden at RVH for the remainder of the holiday season.

Our Tree of Lights Campaign have been mailed and this year feature artwork created by Joanne Beattie Kalimeris, created from a photo taken by Donna Ferguson Barr of Depth of Field Photography highlighting our beautiful Healing Garden festively adorned for the holiday season.
