The Gord Bamford Foundation is pleased to announce the 12th Annual Charity Golf Classic will be taking place Aug. 7th-8th at the Cambridge Hotel Resort & Conference Centre in Red Deer.

The star-studded gala includes appearances from sports icons and performances from Canadian country music stars Gord Bamford, Jess Moskaluke, Aaron Pritchett and JoJo Mason.

“No other event in Canada is doing what we are doing. We bring in top athletes, exciting acts, and incredible experiences to be bid on during our auction. The goal is to create a unique experience every year,” said Bamford.

“Every year the organizing committee does an incredible job. I am so grateful to have the team I do, they see my vision and my passion to support kids and communities,” he said.

“We anticipate raising enough funds to make a difference in the lives of thousands of kids this year. Thanks to everyone for their support over the years – I look forward to the 12th annual!”

Hosted by Bamford, the gala evening will see an auction packed with unique items and a delicious dinner for attendees. The second day will see a full day of golf at the beautiful Lacombe Golf & Country Club.
