OPCA 3rd Annual Golf Tournament












The 3rd annual OPCA Charity Golf Tournament was held September 30th at the Nottawasaga Inn & Resort in Alliston. The course played beautifully and we were met with amazing weather this year. The turn out was great with approximately sixty-five golfers attending this year. Everyone had a wonderful day and once again we were able to benefit a wonderful charity in Threads of Life.

Thank you to everyone who came out to the event including OPCA members, POST committee members, industry suppliers and several friends and family. Thank you to OPCA President Ken Jamieson and each of the other OPCA board members for attending as well. Howard Heal hailing from Alberta also joined us for the day.  We are also grateful for the continued support of Shell and Suncor who also participated in our event. We would also like to thank Henry Gruyters for MC’ing the dinner and prize portion of the day and Scott Eadie for photographing the event.

The proceeds from the tournament go to Threads of Life, a very special organization that promotes safety in the workplace and supports families who have suffered a workplace fatality, traumatic life-altering injury, or occupational disease through many of their programs across Canada. Threads of Life volunteer Fran DeFilippis attended the dinner that followed the tournament.opca-golf-2016-53-of-64

Finally, a massive thanks to our sponsors. Without their support such a successful event is not possible. Support was received through hole sponsorship and prize donations.


Thank you to our hole sponsors!








A special thank you to David Mason of Canada Brokerlink for sponsoring the hole in one prize of two Can-Am ATV’s and thank you to St. Onge Recreation for supplying them.



The Hole-in-One prizes were two Can-Am Outlander ATVs supplied by St. Onge Recreation and sponsored by Canada Brokerlink.














Our event raised a grand total of $8000.00 for Threads of Life!  Fran DeFilippis graciously accepted the cheque on Threads of Life behalf, thanking the OPCA for their continued support.
