2011 SOCA Convention Hospitality Suite
Kudos to the Rebel Group of CA in Toronto for their “over-the-top” efforts at hosting the 2011 Convention Hospitality Suite. The Rebel Group’s outstanding generosity of spirit helped, throughout the three-day of the convention, to provide refreshments, food and snacks to some 400 CA attendees. Special thanks to Brian and Cathy for their creation of a three-tiered Great Canadian Convention Cake complete with a chocolate Canadian beaver. The chocolate beaver was later sold at the Saturday night auction to raise funds for the convention.
