Gord Bamford Foundation golf classic returns to Red Deer

12th annual charity golf tournament to be held Aug. 7 and 8

The 12th annual Gord Bamford Foundation’s Charity Golf Classic is set for Aug. 7 and 8.

The gala includes appearances by sports icons and performances by Canadian country music stars Gord Bamford, Jess Moskaluke, Aaron Pritchett and JoJo Mason.

“No other event in Canada is doing what we are doing. We bring in top athletes, exciting acts and incredible experiences to be bid on during our auction. The goal is to create a unique experience every year,” Bamford said.

“We anticipate raising enough funds to make a difference in the lives of thousands of kids this year.”

Hosted by Bamford at the Cambridge Hotel Resort & Conference Centre, the gala evening will feature an auction and dinner.

The second day involves a full day of golf at the Lacombe Golf & Country Club.

The charity golf classic is the primary source of fundraising for the Gord Bamford Foundation.

Last year’s sold-out event raised $469,720, which was shared with MusiCounts, Big Brothers Big Sisters-Lacombe, Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre, and supported music therapy programs in children’s hospitals across Canada.

To date, the foundation has raised more than $3.6 million to support organizations making a difference in children’s lives across Canada.

All funds raised are used to support youth-centred initiatives that include or involve music, education, health care, sports and multi-use facilities.
