SANTA GETS A HELPING HAND FROM NAFA ONTARIO
NAFA Ontario Chapter held its annual Christmas luncheon at the Glenerin Inn and Spa in Mississauga, Ontario. Over 75 fleet professionals attended donating over 50 toys for the CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish.
“Our annual NAFA Ontario Chapter Holiday Luncheon has a great tradition of bringing our fleet colleagues together for a toast to the New Year and a look back at all we have done as an organization,” said Jennifer Chapman, Leaseplan Canada. “This year’s event was no exception as we had 77 of our peers gather at the Glenerin Inn and enjoy a delicious lunch and give once again to our community! We were very pleased with the turnout and most pleased to fill a van with toys for those kids in the GTA in need of a very Merry Christmas!”
The event brought together representatives from the various facets of the fleet industry to network and wish each other all the best for the Christmas season. As a special early Christmas present, attendees received a winter torque to keep warm this winter courtesy of NAFA.
“ARI is proud to be an active supporter of NAFA, and we are particularly excited about some of the recent organizational changes, including expanding the opportunities for NAFA membership,” says Peter Nogalo, Marketing Manager at ARI. “Coming together with a very active and collegial fleet community at NAFA’s holiday lunch has become an annual tradition. Plus, it’s all for a good cause.”
