Fundraising & Events

Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital Foundation raises thousands of dollars for the hospital each year through a series of events it organizes. Our annual events are the Bed Pan Classic Annual Golf Tournament and Christmas in Carleton Place House Tours. This money ensures the patients who come through our doors get the level of care they need and deserve. With your attendance and support of these events, you're making a very real difference in the lives of all our patients.


The Foundation team also supports and provides guidance to the generous community members who host many events throughout the year to raise funds for the Hospital.
