The OPCA would like to thank our members and friends for attending the 8th Annual OPCA Charity Golf Tournament held Friday September 24th at the Innisbrook Golf Course in Barrie. Support and turnout were fantastic this year, and despite COVID restrictions in place and tee-times instead of the usual shotgun format, we had sixty-seven players come out and enjoy a fun day of golf. The threatening rain held out for the day and we had nice fall temperatures for everyone out on the greens. The scores were low with -13 for the winning team and only 1 stroke separating the top 3! The ongoing pandemic has made for a challenging summer, so it was nice to have everyone out to enjoy a day of golf together and benefit a great charity like Threads of Life.
Threads of Life is a national charity that is dedicated to helping Canadian families who have been affected by a workplace tragedy, life-altering injury or occupational disease. It currently provides a network of hope and healing to more than 1,700 family members through one-on-one peer support, links to other community support services and the opportunity to take action to help prevent similar tragedies to other families.
The OPCA is a long-time supporter of Threads of Life and has now raised over $60,000 to date. We are proud to support such an important organization and be a partner in endorsing safety in the workplace.
Thank you to the following hole sponsors!
Thank you to Waleco, Franklin Fueling and Canada Brokerlink for providing additional monetary and prize donations!
A special thank you to David Mason of Canada Brokerlink for sponsoring the hole in one prize of $50,000! While there were some close shots, we didn’t have a lucky winner this year.
We are thrilled to have raised a grand total of $10,000 for Threads of Life! A cheque will be presented to Threads at the OPCA office in Barrie.
The OPCA staff and Board hope everyone stays safe and healthy, and we will see you again next year!
