There are less than two weeks to go until the 40th Anniversary Golf tournament taking place at Bearspaw Golf Club on September 27. This event is a great opportunity to reconnect with old friends and meet new ones while out on the course engaging in some friendly competition.
After the tournament, participants will come together for a special meal and speeches from the CEO, Dr. Greg Bass, founding Board Member Jim Gray and keynote speaker Olympic Gold Medalist Kasia Gruchalla- Wesierski. The night will be spent remembering the past 40 years, sharing stories from the present and looking forward to the future of Calgary Academy. You don’t want to miss the stories, prizes and history making at this event!
Most importantly, all funds raised from this golf tournament will go towards the Calgary Academy Parents’ Association (CAPA) Bursary Fund and the purchase of a new Knights Bus. CAPA is an organization of Calgary Academy parents who raise bursary money to support families of Calgary Academy children. CAPA is volunteer-run charity. Since 1986, it has raised more than $5 million to help children who demonstrate financial need.
“The CA golf tournament is more than just a round of golf. It’s a collective recognition for a community coming together for an amazing school that delivers incredible results to young minds looking to find their path in life! We have seen these amazing results with all three of our kids at this school,” said Aaron Lane, CAPA President.
In addition to supporting CAPA, the funds raised from the golf tournament will also go towards the $100,000 purchase price of a new bus, which will enable students to travel to high-engagement learning opportunities like field trips, community events, and athletics opportunities.
Lastly, a 50/50 draw will be held in concert with the tournament to help raise funds for student bursaries. You can support this cause by purchasing 50/50 Cash Raffle tickets here and spread the word to your family and friends.
