OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 11, 2009) - The Sens Foundation announced that $125,000 was raised at the 16th annual Bell/Ottawa Senators Charity Golf Classic, which was held today at Kanata Golf & Country Club

With this total, the Bell/Ottawa Senators Charity Golf Classic has now collected more than $1,220,000 over its 16-year history. Of the monies raised, $50,000 is destined for the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and $75,000 for the Sens Foundation to support registered charitable organizations, with programs that focus on improving the quality of life for underprivileged children and youth.

The 16th Annual Bell/Ottawa Senators Charity Golf Classic, which is the club's first official public function of the season, is one of the events that will help Bell and the Sens Foundation fulfill the million-dollar goal.
