Beeton, Ont. –  The Ontario Chapter of the Baking Association of Canada had a great turnout for its annual golf tournament to raise funds to support scholarships for students in baking and pastry programs.

Nearly 150 members hit the links at The Club at Bond Head near Beeton, Ont., about an hour north of Toronto.

A barbecue lunch started off the day, with hotdog and hamburger buns courtesy Breadsource.

Mother Nature and a picturesque course of wooded areas and open vistas co-operated so well by providing a sunny day that a very sociable 18 holes took a little longer than usual!


After the golf, members sat down to a delicious dinner with dinner rolls supplied by Backerhaus and desserts supplied by Baker Street.

Chapter board member and organizer Gary Franklin welcomed the industry back to the annual fundraiser and presided over a raffle drawn by Ontario Chapter chair Kate Tomic that saw lucky winners walk away with a barbecue smoker, a mountain bike, a countertop mixer, an air fryer and other appealing prizes.

Peter Abbott and Erica Lupetto won longest drive in their respective categories.

BAC national board members Peter Jacobs and Tom Mattes encouraged members present to spread the word about the many benefits of joining the organization, which represents the interests of bakers in Canada. These include access to training through the American Baking Association and Bread Bakers Guild of America and free membership for baking and pastry students.

The Chapter raised a net profit of $19,200 towards student scholarships.

Sponsors for the day was Handtmann, Multivac and Packaging Machinery Concepts.
