When most golf fans think of the RBC Canadian Open they think of terrific golf moments – like Tiger’s 213-yard bunker shot to win the title in 2000. While what happens on the turf inside the ropes is quite a spectacle, it’s what happens outside the ropes that truly makes the championship special.
Since coming on board as title sponsor of the RBC Canadian Open in 2008, RBC along with Golf Canada have raised $8.78 million for charitable organizations across Canada. Throughout its history, Canada’s National Open Championship has generated more than $50 million in charitable proceeds for important causes.
Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada is the official charity of the RBC Canadian Open. The 15 Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada provide a place for out-of-town families to stay while their sick child is being treated at a nearby hospital.
Ronald McDonald Houses provide families of sick children with a home to stay at while their child is being treated at a nearby hospital. As well, Ronald McDonald Family Rooms provide a comfortable place for families to rest and recharge, right inside hospitals. And through Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles, they help to bring basic medical care to vulnerable communities. So families can stay together and kids can heal better.
