The 15th Annual Business Fore Calgary Kids Charity Golf Tournament

The 15th Annual Business Fore Calgary Kids Charity Golf Tournament

BFCK Charity Golf Tournament

It is with regret and the conviction that we are doing the right thing, that the Founders have decided to cancel the 15th annual Business Fore Calgary Kids golf tournament, scheduled for June 1st at the Glencoe Golf and Country Club. At the same time, the needs of the vulnerable children in our community have heightened as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

As many of you know, the Founders personally sponsor the tournament operations. For this year, those funds will go directly to the selected charities. Additionally, we are grateful that we have been supported in this decision by our title sponsor and many others who had already committed their 2020 sponsorship funds. They have agreed to honour their commitment to the BFCK charities even in the absence of golf.

 

Title Sponsor: Western Materials Handling and Equipment Ltd.

Major Sponsors: EECOL, Lochend Energy Services Ltd., Curve Distribution Services, M3 Developments, White Swan Environmental Ltd., Halliburton Oilfield Services Canada and Gordon Food Services.

Hole Sponsors: Endurance Technologies, Dicta Court and Gamma Tech.

The Glencoe Golf and Country Club has agreed to waive any cancellation fees, so that all available funds can go to support our selected charities in this time of need. We have also received support from our auction donors and are considering options to hold an auction in the near future, which will further contribute to the funds which go to these charities.

 

Through these combined efforts, over $112,000 ($16,000+ per charity) is being contributed to our seven charities for immediate use this Spring: Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter, Distress Centre Calgary, Between Friends, Inn From the Cold, YMCA Calgary, KidSport Calgary and NSTEP.

We continue our partnership with the Shaw Charity Classic Birdies for Kids program and will be encouraging our charities to access the matching program available to them. This will provide $5,900+ per charity in funding this Fall.

 

In the meantime, we hope you and your families are safe and we hope to see you on June 7, 2021.

 

The Founders thank you for your support.

 

Sincerely,

The Founders of BFCK

 

 

Like-minded individuals can certainly effect change. Just look at the difference the great group of guys who started the Business Fore Calgary Kids (BFCK) annual golf tournament ten years ago have made. What started as a chat over coffee (or beers, one might think) between Bob Cardell and John Fitzsimmons evolved into the discussion as to what business men could do to help less-advantaged kids in our city. A few phone calls later and the rest, as they say, is history. The Foundation’s aim is to raise money for non-profit organizations that support local kids in need through an annual charity golf tournament.

 

The Business Fore Calgary Kids Foundation Founders would like to thank all of our sponsors, golfers and supporters for making the 14th Annual Business Fore Calgary Kids Tournament a tremendous success. With your help, we raised over $240,000 to help Calgary Kids in need. We are hoping you can make the 15th Annual even better!

 

The 15th Annual Business Fore Calgary Kids Golf Tournament was to be on June 1, 2020 at Glencoe Golf & Country Club. We look forward to 2021 and an even bigger and better tournament that we can possibly imagaine. Please keep checking in here for updates on 2021. Goldminefactory
