The Leader’s Invitational – 2002 – present
The Leader’s Invitational, founded in 2002, is a golf tournament and tradeshow fundraiser. Guests travel from across North America to attend, requiring various accommodations in local properties. Using two golf courses, the event requires over 100 volunteers to produce this one day event, which raises over $500,000 annually. Attended by 300 golfers, 150 tradeshow hosts, and special guests, this event requires an annual infrastructure to be built each year. The infrastructure includes 225 golf carts, 50 tents plus a 6000 square foot marquis, seating for 500 for dinner, trailers for office, storage, and washrooms, a 58 foot refrigerated trailer for food and beverage storage, 12 large bins for recycling and garbage, 12 portable toilets, and 500 plants for décor. Guest chefs host food stations for breakfast, lunch and dinner. On course tradeshow booths showcase the finest of local products and beverages, with pairings such as Northern Divine Caviar and Sumac Ridge Stellar Jay sparkling, a 12 hour roasted pig, served with a citrus ale, fresh farm eggs and local pork sausages all wrapped in a house made sun dried tomato tortilla, local food trucks, local beer, wine, and distilled products. The tournament is a networking and business development event, where the score isn’t as important as the comradeship and the cause.
Go Golf Events Management (GGEM) is the founding producer, and continues each year to increase support, and host a new and exciting event, continuing to keep interest high. Attendees comment every year: “they can’t wait to see what will be added in the next year”. This event sells out annually, with a wait list.
