Support Alive and Well for the Gord Bamford Charity Golf Classic
Alberta-based businesses Waschuk Pipeline Construction and JEDCO Energy Services have stepped up to offer their continued support, a key component to the success of the 8th Annual Gord Bamford Charity Golf Classic.
Wes Waschuk, president of Waschuk Pipe line says, “Waschuk Pipeline is proud to help sponsor the Gord Bamford Foundation’s Charity Golf Classic for the second year in a row. More than ever, his charitable cause is important to many people, due to the unfavorable economic climate we are presently experiencing.”
For two years now, JEDCO Energy Services and Waschuk Pipeline Construction Ltd. are sharing the title sponsorship. “Our support of the Bamford Charity Classic is driven by Gord’s passionate belief in helping others. Once again, we are honored in assisting Gord through our sponsorship of this event,” says Duane Sokalski, Vice President & GM, JEDCO Energy Services.
A welcome back to CTV Edmonton for their support, coming on board as they join up with the event again as the television and media sponsor. “I’ve watched Gord give away guitars to kids during his concerts and as someone who has spent his whole life with a guitar within reach, I applaud this initiative that creates opportunities for others to enjoy the gifts that only music can bring,” says Lloyd Lewis, Vice President and General Manager of CTV Edmonton.
Bamford is grateful for sponsorship, especially as the Alberta economy faces a difficult year. “I really can’t thank them enough for their generosity. They are the reason our event is able to grow and deliver record breaking totals, year after year,” says Bamford.
The festivities for this private event begin on Wednesday, August 12, 2015 at 5:30pm, at the Sheraton Hotel in Red Deer, Alberta where 800 guests will sit down to an evening of music, fun and fundraising, prior to a day on the links at the Lacombe Golf and Country Club.
