11th Annual Jeanne Fuller Red Dress Charity Golf Classic

Date: Monday, September 11, 2017

Location: Loch March Golf and Country Club

Since its inception, the Red Dress has raised $1,000,000 - most recently raising money for the Canadian Women’s Heart Health Centre, which was launched in November 2014. 
Hosted by Mark Fuller and named after Mrs. Jeanne Fuller, the Family’s appreciation for the Heart Institute and the awareness the tournament has brought has made the Jeanne Fuller Red Dress Charity Golf Classic recognized as one of Ottawa’s premier charity golf tournaments for females.

Every year the tournament sells out and an extensive waiting list is created. The day of the tournament is filled with valuable information and facts that many women don't know about Heart disease. We want to encourage everyone to start the conversation about women & heart disease and raise awareness!

This tournament allows women to gather together in support of each other, to empower each other and to educate - all while having a "great day" at Loch March Golf & Country Club.
