The Calgary Flames Alumni Association is excited to announce that 2021 marks the 27th year of the Calgary Flames Alumni Masters Tournament. The Masters Tournament, presented by Willow Park Wines and Spirits, is an annual charity golf tournament hosted by the Alumni. This year the tournament will be held on Thursday, September 16th at Priddis Greens Golf Course. The event will kick off with a shotgun start at 9am 100% of the proceeds from the tournament will directly support Cerebral Palsy Kids and Families.
“As an Alumni group there are a lot of us that call Calgary home. We enjoy being able to give back to the community while bringing our group back together. The Alumni golf tournament gives us the opportunity to rekindle our relationships while raising funds for worthwhile causes,” said Dana Murzyn, Tournament Chair. “This has been an unprecedented last 18 months and the Alumni felt it was important to hold the event even though it will look different this year. The charity needs our support now more than ever.”
The Masters Tournament was originally founded in 1995 by Eddie Wong and former Flames Captain Jim Peplinski. Since then, the tournament has gone on to support a number of different Calgary-based organizations and has raised over $2.7 million for local charities. This year’s tournament and reception will feature a number of Calgary Flames Alumni and will raise funds and awareness for Cerebral Palsy Kids and Families.
Cerebral Palsy Kids & Families provide family-focused support, resources, programs and opportunities to Calgary area individuals and families living with physical disabilities. In response to the largest community needs, they have successfully developed flagship programs including their Family Support, Adapted Bike, Equipment Loan and Technology Support programs. Over the past nine years, with the help of the Calgary Flames Alumni Masters Tournament, over 1,500 kids living with a physical disability have experienced the simple joy of riding a bike. Funds raised from this year’s event will be used to expand the Adapted Bike and Equipment Program which is the largest of its kind in North America.
The Flames Alumni Masters Tournament wishes to thank their many sponsors. For more information on Cerebral Palsy Kids and Families, please visit, www.calgarycp.org.
