Few things scream summer like spending a beautiful sunny day at the beach. Mix in some volleyball and cold drinks, and you’ve got yourself the perfect weekend.
The hot weather made for a sticky yet perfect day for HOPE Volleyball Summerfest to celebrate its 35th anniversary and give the CENX team a chance to come together to take part in North America’s largest one-day outdoor beach-volleyball tournament.
HOPE Summerfest has become one of the premier fundraising events in Ottawa, drawing in more than 10,000 players and spectators, and raising over $150,000 for six local charities during this year’s event.
There is a strong corporate component to the event, as teams signing up for the corporate division account for a sizeable chunk of the fundraising. This is the third year CENX has participated in this awesome event.
While the two main aspects of this event are of course raising money for charity and building team chemistry, the CENX team also used this as an opportunity to let loose and get our competitive juices flowing. The team represented our office well, winning 4 out of 5 games, good enough for first place on our court!
