Gord Bamford Charity Golf Classic returns

The Gord Bamford Charity Golf Classic is back with the same great mission of providing funds to youth-supporting charities

For the eighth year in a row, the Gord Bamford Charity Golf Classic is back with the same great mission of providing funds to youth-supporting charities across Canada that involves music, education, health care, sports and multi-use facilities.

The golf classic’s board and committee members have continued to deliver on that mission year after year, generating over $2 million dollars since the inaugural tournament in 2008. As the main source of funds to the Foundation, the Gord Bamford Foundation is working harder than ever to achieve another record-breaking year for deserving charities.

This year’s event begins on Aug. 12th at 5:30 p.m., at the Sheraton Hotel Exhibition Hall in Red Deer. The invitation-only gala evening will see 750 people come through its doors to enjoy an evening of world-class country music, exciting auction items and the delicious food-stylings of the Sheraton Hotel’s chefs.

The golf portion of the event hosts a whopping 46 teams and takes place at the Lacombe Golf and Country Club on Aug. 13th.

“I’m very proud of what this event has achieved over the last eight years,” said Bamford. “It’s so great to see many of the same supporters come out each year, as it tells us that people are enjoying our event and that they believe in the continued support of the foundation’s deserving causes.”

Thanks to the generosity of businesses, supporters, golfers and sponsors, the Gord Bamford Charity Golf Classic raised a record-setting $503,000 last August. These funds were proudly distributed to a number of youth-serving charities like Ronald McDonald House Central Alberta, KidSport Alberta and Make-A-Wish Foundation of Northern Alberta to name a few. Children’s hospital foundations across the country from Calgary and Edmonton, to Winnipeg and Hamilton see benefits from the Gord Bamford Charity Golf Classic.

This announcement is hot on the heels of the six Canadian Country Music Award nominations Bamford received last week, including the Fan’s Choice Award, where fans can place a vote for their favourite artist at http://ccmafanvote.dmds.com.
