Valérie’s Flutter Foundation finds it very important and necessary to work in the community. We all benefit when lots of people are engaged and become aware of significant causes. When people rally together and work to make a difference, anything is possible.


Valérie has long been involved with the Terry Fox Run in Orléans, and has taken the successes of the past years as an inspiration for the foundation. Whether it be creating a new event or participating in one, Valérie’s Flutter Foundation wishes to be active in its community and to help get others involved in the cause.

Sarcoma... Most people haven't heard of this rare type of bone cancer. We strive to raise money and awareness to improve research on Sarcoma in order to improve treatment and success in overcoming this disease. Valérie's Flutter Foundation is proud to have given over $450,000 towards cancer research projects at the Ottawa Hospital in just over 8 years. While pursuing her studies in civil engineering at the University of Ottawa, Valérie Goneau lost her battle to Sarcoma at the age of 20. Since then Valérie's family continue Valérie's dream of one day putting an end to cancer. Thank you for supporting Valérie's Flutter Foundation's mission. To learn more, please visit


In a “Scramble” format the players or designated team captain decide after each shot which one the best shot is. Each player on the team plays their next shot from that spot. The group then plays this way until the ball is holed out.



Social distancing guidelines will be in place at the golf course. For dinner, your table will be with members. Masks are to be worn indoors. We continue to monitor Ottawa Health and Provincial guidelines and will adjust the event accordingly. If you are feeling ill and/or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, please refrain from attending the golf tournament and you will be reimbursed.
