2020 LSO Virtual Un-Golf Classic and Networking
Registration is open.

LSO’s Annual Golf Classic is a premier networking and fundraising event for our sector, bringing together 140+ members of our industry for a fun-filled day at Copper Creek in August. This event sells out each year, and continues to be a key fundraising vehicle for LSO, directly supporting our advocacy, mentorship
program, Networking Nights, and Breakfast Meetings. Proceeds from our silent auction at the event help support the next generation of life sciences leaders through the Sanofi Biogenius Canada program. Due to COVID-19 and with social distancing rules in effect, our events have had to adapt and therefore move to a virtual platform. It was a very tough decision but in the end, the committee felt it was the right decision to cancel the in-person golf tournament for the safety and health of all participants. The committee has been busy brainstorming ideas to help fundraise for LSO and still provide a fun virtual event of prizes, speakers and networking.


About the 2020 LSO Un-Golf Classic and Networking

The 2020 LSO Virtual Un-Golf tournament will use online tools to help create a golf themed event with prizes, guest speakers and networking. It will also provide a valuable fundraising function supporting LSO’s activities and Sanofi Biogenius Canada. Following the format of a PGA tournament, each attendee will receive 4 spins of a wheel (Figure 1) to get cumulative score. There will be prizes for the 3 lowest scores and also random draws for prizes. Spins will be done at 9:00am and 12:00pm on Tuesday, August 25th and Thursday, August 27th, and will be webcast live. A leaderboard will be included on our website for quick reference. During the main event on both days from 3:30-5:00pm, there will be guest speakers, random draws for prizes and networking with other attendees.

The networking portion will take place on Remo Conference and will enable you to move from one virtual table to another to network with others. The platform does include video and audio connections through your computer. There is no software to download, you just need to create a simple account (name, email) to begin. You can even connect your LinkedIn profile to easily connect with others at the
