All Fore a Good Cause – Rebuilding Lives Golf Tournament
On September 11, SCIO supporters, sponsors, staff and volunteers travelled to The Georgian Bay Club, just outside of Collingwood, to attend the 29th annual Rebuilding Lives Golf Tournament. After registration and a BBQ lunch, 36 groups took to carts and made their way to starting holes. Threats of rain didn’t dampen any spirits and our attendees were able to play a round of 18 holes in support of the programs and services our community rely on every day.
Our golfers shared laughter and friendly competition, and by the time the final scores were tallied everyone was ready to warm-up in the clubhouse and enjoy a delicious dinner. On their way in, they stopped by our silent auction and placed their highest bids on a variety of gifts generously donated by sponsors and individuals from the SCIO community.
Once everyone had made their way to the dining room, our CEO Stuart Howe made some opening remarks before giving the floor over to SCIO’s Director of Resource Development Ari Wahl and Bruce Power President and CEO Mike Rencheck to announce the winners of our closest to the pin and longest drive competition (sadly no one took home the coveted Hole in One prize – better luck next time!)
Every year, SCIO reaches out to our industry sponsors to make these events possible and this year was no exception. Thanks and appreciation to:
Bruce Power – Co-lead sponsor
The Provincial Building and Construction Trades Council of Ontario – Co-lead sponsor
The Electrical Power Systems Construction Association (EPSCA) – Dinner sponsor

Thanks to these organizations and to everyone who attended the Rebuilding Lives Golf Tournament we reached a new fundraising milestone of over $132,000
