A Patriotic Refrigerator – The Latest Celebrity Added to Gord Bamford’s Charity Event
Lacombe, Alberta – Star-studded concert experiences and more will be delivered this Wednesday, August 12th at Gord Bamford’s Charity Golf Gala taking place at the Sheraton Hotel in Red Deer, Alberta. A special addition to the 8th annual event is the iconic Molson Canadian Beer Fridge that will grace the Gala with the ultimate Canadian experience. The proudly Canadian fridge was launched in 2013 and gained momentum during the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia where only a Canadian passport could open the fridge door.
The fridge has since undergone a transformation where it now requires the Canadian National Anthem to be sung correctly in order to crack the door for the singer to earn a beer.
“We understand that Molson constantly fields requests from Canadians coast to coast wanting the Beer Fridge in their homes, their cottages and at their events. Even the Canadian Embassy in Paris asked for it! So as a proud Canadian, I’m both flattered and really excited that it’s visiting our Central Alberta event this year,” says Gord Bamford.
The event will continue to deliver exciting live auction items including everything from a trip to a 16th century Tuscan Farmhouse in Italy restored by Luxus Developments, to a VIP experience at the upcoming Juno Awards in Calgary, as well as a salmon fishing trip to the Queen Charlotte Islands. Of course, Gord Bamford will be adding an in-home private concert to the list of items up for bid.
Celebrities and athletes are also auctioned off to the golf teams and companies who have sponsored the event, which allows them to enjoy a round of golf the next day with the celebrity they’ve purchased, adding a very special element to the round. Also on course, golfers will be treated to a hole where Bobby Bradley, 8 time RE/MAX World Long Drive finalist will show off his skills to raise funds for the foundation.
The private event to be co-emceed by singer/songwriter and television host Beverly Mahood and recording artist, motivational speaker and professional auctioneer Danny Hooper. 800 guests are expected at the Red Deer, Alberta Sheraton Hotel, starting at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 12th. The Gord Bamford Charity Golf Classic is held the next day with an early shotgun start at the Lacombe, Golf and Country Club, in Bamford’s hometown.
