Contest winners

Thank you to everyone who hurried hard to enter our contest to win tickets to 2017 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings. The contest is officially over and we have four winners. We gave out two grand prizes, full week event tickets, and two secondary prizes, opening weekend ticket packages. Our winners stopped by BrokerLink’s Rockland and Antares branches (in Ontario) to pick up their prizes.

Antares branch team members David Mathers and Deborah Moore were part of the winner welcoming committee. Deborah is the regional branch manager and David is a commercial insurance advisor and second on Team Glenn Howard.

We hope our winners enjoyed the experience!
