"The support was overwhelming considering all the restrictions with social distancing and COVID-19," Coulombe-Fiore said. "We cannot say thank you enough to all the business leaders who took the time to make this such a successful event. Congratulations to one of the Dolan’s teams who took first place again this year. Coming in at first with a female team, included the ladies from AC’s Pub in Aurora. This included owner Ancra Covaliu, Mary Johnson, Kim Phoutz and Rose Alvis."

She also extended special thanks to the MEDC's Golf Committee, as well as to all the volunteers, sponsors and raffle donors.

"Without them, this event would not have such positive feedback and fun," Coulombe-Fiore said.
