LWW Children's Foundation to Raise Money for Kids with Cancer 'Camp Ooch' Primary Recipient of Funds

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 27, 2005) - The Loeb-Williams-Woodall (LWW) Children's Foundation will host its second annual charity golf tournament on Wednesday September 28, 2005 at Angus Glen Golf and Country Club.

The founding members of LWW have all gone through the experience of losing a loved one to either cancer or an aneurysm. They know first-hand how these conditions affect families and friends. "Since we've been through this we know that we can help others who are experiencing similar circumstances." says Daymon Loeb, founding member of the LWW. Mr. Loeb is also excited about this week's tournament stating that "it (the golf tournament) is a great and fun way to bring people together to raise money for a very worthy cause".

The charity golf tournament is organized to help raise funds for Camp Oochigeas, which receives no government funding. Children who attend Camp Ooch do not pay, and each year the camp relies on the generosity of individuals and foundations in order to meet its $1 million operating budget. Camp Oochigeas operates three, two week sessions for more than 200 children living with cancer. The camp remains the only camping facility in Ontario to offer intravenous chemotherapy treatment on -site for its campers. In addition the camp offers year-round programs including visits to Toronto's Sick Kids Hospital four times each week.

The tee-off time for the sold-out charity tournament is 1:00pm tomorrow, Wednesday September 28th. Foursomes will play the stunning course at Angus Glen and participate in golf challenges throughout the day. The event wraps-up with a dinner presentation at 6:00pm where the LWW will present a cheque to a representative from Camp Oochigeas.

LWW was founded in 2003 and has as its mission to improve the quality of life for children who have been affected in some way by either cancer or an aneurysm. LWW financially supports extra-curricular activities and educational programs for kids with terminal and/or debilitating illnesses in Ontario.
