The weather was a bit misty but cooperated enough for COPA and CHHMA members to have a great day at Richmond Hill Golf and Country Club last week Wednesday. The “pandemic proof” Golf Tournament has received great reviews from participants, who relished the opportunity to see clients and colleagues face-to-face for the first time in months!  

“Considering that we weren’t sure that this event was even going to happen at all after we rescheduled from May due to COVID-19, we are extremely happy with the industry support and participation it received,” commented Sam Moncada, COPA president. 

“I would like to personally thank Nicole [Gamble, COPA’s event coordinator] and our golf committee for working diligently to make this event happen. Thanks also to our sponsors and all the industry participants who ensured this event was a success.”

“The golf tournament is one of our most popular events because of the opportunity to network in a relaxing atmosphere. But, golfers seemed to enjoy this event even more than usual this year,” commented Gamble. “The cocktail reception and dinner were definitely missed, but participants made the most of their time on the green.” 

“We couldn’t be happier with the success of our first in-person event since the pandemic started!”

Our thanks go out to our sponsors; we couldn’t have done it without you!
