HHCA 95th Anniversary Celebration


Last chance to enjoy a casual evening September 17th as we celebrate the 95th anniversary of the HHCA at Tim Hortons Field. All members in attendance will see your company logo featured on the Jumbotron during our member recognition segment of the evening's festivities.

How about participating in a game of soccer with a giant, over-sized soccer ball at field-level? Well, this will be your opportunity! With your registration you receive admission to the soccer game. Following the on-field experience, we will go to the Club-level for a reception with cocktails and appetizers. Registration is only $95 (plus hst).  REGISTER HERE!

There are three sponsorships that are available. Become the Presenting Sponsor for $3,500 or the Field-Level sponsor for $2,500, Club-Level Sponsor for $2,000 or Dinner Sponsor for $800.

HHCA Golf Day


The HHCA hosted our annual Golf Day at Heron Point on August 13th with a nearly sold-out tournament. The winning foursome was Masters Insurance (Hamilton) with golfers Will Corby, Slater Doggett, Mike Gross and Jake Corby who won with a score of -12! Congraulations!
Doug Corby and his team from Masters Insurance was the generous team sponsor along with their Hole-in-One challenge. Since Masters Insurance won the same challenge they sponsored, they will be "paying it forward" and have donated their prizes to a fundraiser that benefits childhood cancers but will keep their trophies and bragging rights!

A thank you also goes out to our competition sponsors! Trisura Guarantee Insurance Company for sponsoring the Men's Closest to the Pin, Roque Roofing for sponsoring the Women's Closest to the Pin, L.J. Barton Mechanical sponsored the Men's Longest Drive and Aon sponsored the Women's Longest Drive. Thank you to all our members who also contributed to our prize table!

Thank You to our Major Sponsors!

WIC: Huddles & Heels & 9 & Dine

The HHCA's Women in Construction (WIC) attended the Tiger-Cats Huddles & Heels event on August 21st at Tim Hortons Field and had a fantastic time! Rob Hitchcock and Mike Morreale taught the ladies some football 101 and later applied these skills on the field. We have some photos from the event below and a collage submission from Dan Lawrie Insurance Brokers as well! 

Check out the Photos!

The next WIC's event is a 9 & Dine on September 16, 2015 at Copetown Woods with the Hamilton-Halton Homebuilders Association ladies. Limited spots are available for this event. Register here!
