  archway.jpgROI: What's on the Inside is an ARIDO initiative that was launched earlier this year. The goal of this initiative is to enhance and improve the interior conditions of the Archway Clinic, a CAMH satellite outpatient clinic. The clinic has existed since the mid-1970s. It currently serves 369 clients with chronic mental illness and has 25 staff.

Thanks to an outpouring of support from the interior design industry – both in donating products and services – work on the space is in its final stages and near completion.

In order for the project to receive the financial support it needed in order to acheive completion, ARIDO partnered with Golfzon, and held a fundraiser during IIDEX Canada. Golfzon generously provided a golf simulator that allowed participants to virtually drive the ball 200 + yards down the fairway.

Below are the winners of the longest drive contest:

Thursday's longest drive:

Men's - Ryan Cater (298.1 yards)
Women's - Terri Righton (185.2 yards)

Friday's longest drive winners:

Men's - Greg Peters (291.2 yards)
Women's - Jessica Allen (182.1 yards)
