After a day spent on the greens, the many guests were treated to an open bar cocktail with delicious sushi and finger food. As is now the tradition, guests could bet on an array of items at a silent auction while a few selected prizes were offered in a traditional auction. Both auctions featured various interesting items including sports memorabilia of athletes such as Montreal Canadiens’ Yvan Cournoyer, Carey Price and Brendan Galagher, Toronto Blue Jays’ Russell Martin, mixed martial artist Georges St-Pierre and the late Expos legend Gary Carter.
