What a day for Golf!

A mind blowing day at the Vaughan Chamber's Annual Golf Tournament. Over 120 golfers joined us on the beautifully sunny day and enjoyed 18 holes of golf, a BBQ lunch, fantastic networking, and our banquet dinner with a special performance by Mentalist Bobby Motta!
Through our raffle, $1,500 was raised, benefiting Creating Alternatives Day Program.

Congratulations to this year's winning foursome, Loopstra Nixon LLP, with a score of -14.
