The Starting Five for the Leafs vs. the Bruins on November 26
29 NOV 2018
Well, it was likely a group including Mitch Marner and Morgan Rielly, but the ClubLink Members at the game were the starting five for the 2019 ClubLink golf season… a little early.
Scott Dickson of Blue Springs, Robin Rock from Eagle Creek, King Valley Member Craig McMahon, Shawn MacDonald of Kanata and Dimple Patel from Glen Abbey were announced as the lucky winners of the 2018 season-long Michelob Ultra promotion. For a good portion of the summer, Members who purchased a Michelob Ultra on their account were automatically entered into a draw to have their 2019 annual dues covered thanks to Labatt Canada.
While Patel was unable to attend the game, the other four Members joined Labatt Canada's national key account manager Vince DiRisio for an unforgettable evening that took place an arms-length away from the Bruins bench.
"I’ve been a ClubLink Member for more than 15 years and I have been lucky enough to enjoy so much golf and travel with ClubLink, in addition to working very hard to make our Labatt product a part of the ClubLink Member experience,” stated DiRisio. "From what I have seen and learned from my fellow Members – it was easy for me to come up with this program. I knew everyone would see it as a great new Member benefit opportunity for ClubLink Members who enjoyed a Michelob Ultra along the way this summer. I can only hope these five lucky Members may buy a Michelob Ultra for their playing partner as well next year with the money I saved them!"
As a Member for more than 15 years, DiRisio has a keen perspective on the valuable relationship his company has had with ClubLink over the years.
"Golf is important to our company and to the Michelob Ultra brand, and our relationship with golf has played out well inside the ClubLink membership. Our commitment to bringing added value to each Member's golf experiences through event sponsorship has always been a focus," said DiRisio. "Of course, taking care of our own customer group is quite important as well, so we host a huge event at RattleSnake Point each summer to give our customers a memorable day of golf and fun."
In many ways the game of golf and the business of selling beer is intertwined – both businesses usually cross their fingers for Mother Nature to provide a hot and sunny season! For our five winning Members, they are happy that our two companies continue to work together to bring increased enjoyment and value to the ClubLink Membership each season.
