About the Classic:
The Willow Park Charity Golf Classic began with a simple idea . . . a belief in the importance of giving back to the community, of supporting worthwhile causes on behalf of the Club and its members.
For over 30 years, since 1988, through the generosity of Willow Park directors and members, and through the support of sponsors, players and volunteers, the Willow Park Charity Golf Classic has donated over $10.7 million to Calgary charities.
This year proceeds from the Willow Park Golf Charity Classic will support Pacekids Programs.
Last year in Alberta, over 22,000 children with a disability, were in Early Childhood programs. That’s 22,000 families facing day-to-day challenges of raising a child with special needs. From as young as six months of age, Pacekids supports these children in the home, classroom, and community. For many families, the doors to Pacekids opens a world of hope and an opportunity going from simply surviving to thriving.
Offering an unparalleled level of service to Calgary children with special needs means Pacekids must fundraise an average of $1,000 per child. Proceeds from the Willow Park Charity Golf Classic will leave a legacy and have a lifelong impact on the children and families of Pacekids.
Every child deserves to thrive, and with your support, they will.
