The annual Bestbuy Distributors Buy & Sell event took place quite recently and attracted their shareholders from all across Canada as they met and networked with their suppliers from across North America. This conference took place in the alpine paradise of Whistler, British Columbia… without the snow!
The event, which combines supplier meetings with several social events, attracted the majority of the buying group’s shareholders as well as a wide variety of suppliers to the impressive Fairmont Chateau Whistler resort; located at the base of beautiful Blackcomb Mountain.
As well as two days of successful meetings with suppliers, several events highlighted the mountain experience… a Welcome Reception, the annual SickKids golf tournament and day tour plus a spectacular dinner party at the Squamish Lil’wat Culture Centre in Whistler.
The SickKids golf event was played on the magnificent Chateau Whistler Golf Course. Those not playing golf took part in the SickKids Day tour—a guided tasting adventure taking the group through Whistler Village.
The object of both the golf day and guided tour raised over $20,000.00 for the Family Heart Centre at Toronto’s Hospital for Sick children through the golf sponsorship and raffle sales.
To-date, Bestbuy shareholders and suppliers have raised over $775,000.00 for the leading children’s medical facility. This year’s proceeds from the golf tournament, day tour and raffles will be pooled and a cheque presented to the Hospital for Sick Children at Bestbuy’s upcoming 2017 Annual General Meeting in February in Toronto.
Jeff Van de Sande, President of Bestbuy Distributors stated, “We are pleased that our Buy & Sell meetings were productive and enjoyable for all in attendance.”
