Brian Smith Memorial Golf Tournament
Brian Smith was the popular CTV Ottawa sportscaster and former NHL hockey player who was killed leaving his television studio on his way to speak to the Children’s Wish Foundation in 1995. Brian attended the Ottawa Boys Club camp (called Camp Minwassin at the time) as a thirteen year old and won two awards-best athlete and the most courteous camper. Brian later was also a counsellor at the camp. The Boys and Girls Club was always his favorite charity. The Camp was renamed to Camp Smitty to honour his great contributions to the Ottawa community in 2001.
Almost $1.8 million has been raised over the tournament's 20 years, sending over 2,200 kids to Camp. It is one of the largest of the more than 600 annual golf tournaments in the region.
