ARIDO GTA Chapter Golf Tournament a Wild Success!

The ARIDO GTA Chapter held their 10th annual Golf Tournament “African Golfing Safari” on June 28, at the Richmond Hill Golf Country Club. With 160 participants, this was the largest tournament the chapter has had to date. The day began at 8 a.m. with breakfast. During the breakfast networking session, golfers were encouraged to get their creative juices flowing by designing fun images and words of encouragement on to ARIDO organic t-shirts, to be donated to a local charity, The Big Little Caravan of Joy (BLCJ). All golfers were on their way to tee-off by 8:30 a.m. for a friendly 18 hole best ball competition.  When the rounds were completed, teams gathered in the country club for an African inspired buffet lunch, which received rave reviews from attendees. Silent Auction tables were “abuzz” with excitement, while members tried to out-bid one another in support of The Big Little Caravan of Joy.

This year’s committee was determined to put on a “show” for everyone involved! An inspiring presentation by Sarina Candello, lifted everyone’s spirits as she explained her life’s work with the BLCJ charity including a five-minute video of the impact she has had on the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children by using the performing arts and creative play for health, development and joy. Then all attendees grabbed a “djembe” drum and played along to an exciting performance that had everyone out of their chairs and on their feet!

ARIDO GTA Chapter donated $15,000 to the Big Little Caravan of Joy as well as 200 ARIDO Organic tshirts!
