OPCA 6th Annual Charity Golf Tournament – Recap

The 6th annual OPCA Charity Golf Tournament was held September 20th at the Innisbrook Golf Course in Barrie. The weather was great and we had an amazing day of golf!. The turn out was great with approximately 64 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 of Bar W and Marcus Cormier, President of CPCA and Cantest Solutions, were able to attend and represent Alberta.  We are also grateful for the continued support of Shell who participated in our event. We would also like to thank Henry Gruyters for MC’ing the dinner and prize portion of the day and Austin Vavrovics 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 Bill Bowman attended the dinner that followed the tournament to tell his story of dealing with a workplace injury and living as an amputee.

A massive thank you 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 the following companies who made monetary and/or prize donations:

  • Limegreen
  • Waleco
  • National Energy Equipment
  • PD McLaren
  • Franklin Fueling
  • GJ Watson Service Station Maintenance
  • Canada Brokerlink
