Community support for wishes
For 22 years, the
Make-A-Wish Golf Classic
has helped grant wishes. Each June, this event is planned by a dedicated committee and supported by community sponsors. To date the event has raised more than $3.5 million for Make-A-Wish Northern Alberta. When it was clear that the 2020 event was going to be cancelled, the organizing committee approached sponsors with the news and many of them decided to move forward with donating the funds they’d planned to pledge to the event.
“Many of our sponsors and golfers have been supporting this event for a long time,” says Tournament Chairman Glenn Fisher. “They felt it was important to support the Make-A-Wish mission, even if we couldn’t hold the event.”
Thank you to the event organizers and sponsors who rallied together to support wishes during this critical time.
