Since 2008, The Gord Bamford Charitable Foundation has held an annual charity golf tournament. This year was the fifth annual tournament, and a milestone for the foundation as we have now raised just over 1$ Million. Here are some of the highlights:
- $270,000 raised
- Change of Venue to Lacombe Arena
The $270, 000 was raised through ticket sales, sponsorship, a silent auction and a live celebrity auction and fun events on the course. This brings the five-year total to over 1$ Million raised. These dollars are already making a difference.
Last year’s funds went to help build the Ronald McDonald house in Central Alberta and at this year’s gala a presentation was made to the Make a Wish foundation to send a child to Disney in Hawaii.
Title sponsor PennWest Exploration is already excited to get involved next year:
“Every year we participate in the tournament, our company is impressed by the quality and professionalism of this organization while at the same time, maintaining all of its rural values and charm,” says Keith Luft.
“Gord and his team hit a milestone this year and, in doing so, have really stepped up for the charities they support. Penn West and its employees are proud to be a part of this amazing volunteer foundation that gives so much back – see you next year!”
