Fun, fresh air and fellowship are just three things you will find at the 2019 John Holtmann Memorial Golf Tournament. The industry’s most popluar golf event returns to the Royal Ontario Golf Club, Hornby, ON on June 6. This annual charity event is held in honour of the late John Holtmann, who was the president of Vita Health Fresh Markets in Winnipeg, MB. John also served on the Canadian Health Food Association’s board as a director and board chair. He was inducted into the CHFA Hall of Fame in 2010. John passed away in 2011.
The golf tournament serves as a great opportunity for the industry to come together for a relaxing and fun day, and is also a key fundraiser for Community Food Centres Canada (CFCC). In 2018, the event raised $10,000.
