The 1st Annual Newlight for Hope Charity Golf Tournament was a success. Its organizer, the Canadian Decompression and Pain Centers, said the inaugural tournament held on August 19 was attended by more than 80 golfers and about 30 other attendees who went to the venue, King’s Riding Golf Course in Maple, Ontario. Everyone agreed that the golf course was a perfect venue for a cause-oriented and fun golf event.
The event started at around 9:00 am and went on the entire day, as scheduled. The highlight of the event was the opportunity facilitated for the participants to strengthen and build their social and possible business network. Breakfast and lunch were served along with an open beverage cart After the tournament, a medical/business trade show was staged during a cocktail reception to give way to presentation of the participating medical firms’ products to prospective business partners and consumers. It turned into a great day of networking opportunities. The trade show made the tournament unique, drawing countless raves from all participants.
An hour-long rain shower made the day interesting to all participants as everyone stayed in the trade show venue, mingled with each other, before they went back out to resume playing afterwards. Most of the attendees had a great time and vowed to sponsor and participate in the next tournament. Proceeds of the golf tournament went go to a non-profit organization called ‘Free the Children,’ which aims to empower children across North America to help in improving lives of other children around the world.
