The weather held out for the Industry Day event yesterday, May 29th, where 130 COPA and CHHMA guests gathered at Richmond Hill Golf and Country Club to take part in a Golf Tournament and Country Club experience.

Despite the clouds overhead the mood remained upbeat. Participants were eager to mingle over a hot breakfast at the Clubhouse before heading out to the course and Country Club.

The tournament was full of excitement as golfers enjoyed the course with the added surprises of five poker holes, beer tasting, ice cream bars and a BBQ lunch. Those at the Country Club had an equally fantastic time with loads of activities to fill their day. The excitement continued into the Mix ‘n’ Mingle Cocktail Reception where all participants gathered for an incredible networking evening while enjoying a variety of food stations.

“The mood at this year’s event was truly amazing!” commented Sam Moncada, COPA and CHHMA president. “So far, we’ve heard nothing but positive feedback from participants. We are thankful to all our COPA and CHHMA members who attended and who sponsored this event. We couldn’t do it without your support, thank you.”
