OPIC Bruce Winkler Memorial Golf Day
Thirteen years ago, Bruce Winkler, an avid OPIC Supporter decided to implement OPIC Golf Day as a way to raise funds to help OPIC in their mission to Build A Stronger Pork Industry for Ontario. Today, it is still one of OPIC’s key sources of funding.
Winkler was not only the driving force behind getting OPIC Golf Day started but was one of the key organizers up until 2009 when he relocated to Alberta to take a job as Manager, Field Services and Quality Assurance for Alberta Pork. After his untimely passing in December of 2010, the OPIC Board of Directors decided to rename the tournament in his honour.
2013 Golf Day was a very successful event. 120 Golfers took part in this event and almost $15,000 was raised to help OPIC continue to leverage funds for new projects, do research and provide feedback, training and networking opportunities to all members of the Ontario Pork Industry.
OPIC Managing Director Lori Moser was once again very pleased with the turnout and support. “Golf Day is always such a fun event,” says Moser. “We are very grateful to our Golf Day Sponsors and Participants for their on-going support of this event.”
The 14th Annual Golf Day will be held at the St. Marys Golf and Country Club - postponed - rain date is now July 23, 2014.
