Downtown Halifax Hotel Organizes Tournament to Benefit Local IWK Health Centre

HALIFAX, NS -- (Marketwired) -- Sep 14, 2015 -- Helping others is indeed its own reward. But the 8th-Annual Tee Off for Tots Charity Golf Tournament has added a few perks to enhance the experience. Hosted by the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel, the tournament will welcome golfers and philanthropists to the Glen Arbour Golf Course on Wednesday, October 7, 2015 for a day of golf, dining and endless fun.

Tournament guests will benefit from this Halifax Harbour hotel's extensive experience in planning seamless events. Tee Off for Tots will begin at 8:30 a.m. with registration, followed by a shotgun start at 10 a.m.

Spectators and players alike will relish the challenge afforded by the course's challenging combination of elevation changes, natural hazards and bentgrass greens.

In between the putts and shots, guests can savour both lunch and dinner, try their luck at winning a prize and bid in the silent auction.

While golfers may playfully compete against one another, the real winners of the day will be the patients of the IWK Health Centre. On behalf of the Children's Miracle Network, the IWK will benefit from the funds raised by the tournament. The hospital serves as a specialised care facility for women and children in the Maritime region and served close to 300,000 patients last year alone.

Working to benefit its community is a focal point for this waterfront hotel in Halifax. In addition to catering to travellers with luxurious accommodations, chef-crafted dishes at the signature harbourstone sea grill & pour house and a full range of services at the Interlude Spa, the hotel routinely reaches out to its Halifax community with charitable events. This tournament in particular has raised $212,000 for the hospital over the course of seven years.
