The Automotive Aftermarket Retailer’s Association of Ontario held their annual golf tournament at Newmarket, Ontario’s Cardinal Golf Club on June 4th and a record turnout braved afternoon rains to make the event a success. “Some people head indoors at the slightest hint of rain, but you wouldn’t find their names on any of our scorecards. I don’t think a single one of those golfers quit early, and that includes the gals as well as the guys. Nobody came back to the clubhouse until they’d taken their last putt,” observed tournament registrar Frances Ricci.
The annual event is held in support of the renowned Bloorview MacMillan Centre, a large, Toronto-based rehabilitation facility for physically challenged children. Kirk Lemessurier, communications officer for the Bloorview MacMillan Children’s Foundation thanked the 155 persons packed into the golf banquet hall. He told them that the money Independents have raised for the kids through the association’s yearly tournaments now exceeded $150,000.00. His subsequent announcement that a new gymnasium Bloorview MacMillan is erecting will be named ‘The AARO Therapeutic Wing’ met with enthusiastic applause.
