The foundation of our existence is FAMILY...the team that we are born into." - Michael 'Pinball' Clemons

Join us for this spectacular gala celebration, featuring Canadian Football League legend Michael "Pinball" Clemons, as we honour the 2015 CAFE Family Enterprise of the Year Award (FEYA) Recipient and celebrate the contribution of family business to Canada’s culture and economy.

Michael is an icon of sporting excellence, community leadership, and personal integrity.
