It turned out to be a pleasant summer day for the CHHMA & COPA Industry Day/Golf Tournament on May 29th at the Richmond Hill Golf & Country Club.

130 guests gathered for a hot breakfast at the clubhouse prior to heading out for a relaxing day at the spa or for fun on the course where golfers enjoyed a poker hand challenge, beer tasting by Triple Bogey, an ice cream station sponsored by Hamster, a number of hole competitions including hole-in-one prize opportunities from Special Supporter Golf Series and an excellent BBQ lunch.

Afterwards, everyone joined up again at the clubhouse for a mix & mingle cocktail reception to network and eat from a variety of food stations.

“The mood at this year’s event was truly amazing!” commented CHHMA & COPA President Sam Moncada. “So far, we’ve heard nothing but positive feedback from participants on the course, format and food. We are thankful to all our members who attended and who sponsored the event. We couldn’t do it without your support – thank you.”
