FORCES & FAMILIES Summer and Fall Events 2015
George Chuvalo & General Rick Hillier
The General Rick Golf Classic was held on May 25th, 2015 at the beautiful Thornhill Golf & Country Club in Toronto.
It turned out to be a beautiful day and was a huge success from all perspectives.
40 serving members of the Canadian Armed Forces, Major General Mike Hood, the new Commander of the RCAF and of course General Rick Hillier himself were welcomed by over 100 sponsors and guests.
The golf was followed by a meet and greet and full military dinner, with 'Ribbons', prepared and served by the great staff at Thornhill. A special thanks to Todd McGrath the head Professional, Steve Downs and the whole golf team who made sure everyone had a special day on the links.
And of course a big thank you to all of our sponsors who made this day possible as a special recognition to the brave men and women of the CAF and their families who sacrifice more than we can ever imagine.
