2017 marks the 5th annual Shaw Charity Classic at Canyon Meadows Golf and Country Club. The Shaw Charity Classic, one of the largest and most successful events held in the city of Calgary, is a PGA Tour Champions event featuring professional golfers among the likes of Golf Hall of Famers Fred Couples, Colin Montgomerie, and Mark O’Meara.
Since 2013, the Shaw Charity Classic has raised more than $13.8 million for over 125 children and youth charities in Alberta. For four straight years, the Shaw Charity Classic has set a record for charitable giving on the PGA TOUR Champions. In 2016, the tournament raised over $5.2 million shattering its previous 2015 record of $4 million. In 2017, the tournament is aiming to set another record as it provides contributions to nine official charity partners and 155 participating Birdies for Kids charities.
Matching Program The most exciting part of the program comes together from various corporate supporters with AltaLink being the Founding Partner. Every dollar raised by Empowering Minds will be matched up to 50%. Empowering Minds will receive 100% of every donation collected on our behalf, as the Shaw Charity Classic tournament will cover all administrative and program expenses.
