Shaw Charity Classic
Shaw is donating $500,000 to the Campaign which is in addition to the $1.05 million of in-kind advertising that Shaw donated to RESOLVE which is allowing us to spread awareness of RESOLVE’s first-of-its-kind initiative.
Shaw is the title sponsor for the fifth year of the award-winning PGA TOUR Champions tournament, which has raised more than $13.8 million for youth-based charities in Alberta.
PGA TOUR Champions is a membership organization of golf’s most recognizable and accomplished players, age 50 and older, including 32 members of the World Golf Hall of Fame. In 2017, the PGA TOUR Champions schedule includes 26 tournaments in 18 states, Japan, Wales and Canada, with purses totaling more than $55 million.
RESOLVE will also be a participant in the Birdies for Kids presented by Altalink which is a non-profit program run under the Calgary Shaw Charity Classic Foundation. This program was introduced to the 2015 tournament and is a program designed to help raise funds for local charities, engage the community in the tournament, and provide matching funds for each charity involved.
The 2017 Shaw Charity Classic will take place at Canyon Meadows Golf & Country Club from Aug. 30 – Sept. 3, 2017.
