CALGARY, AB -- The Calgary Flames Alumni Association is excited to announce that 2015 marks the 21st 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 is a 10:00 a.m. shotgun start on Thursday, May 28, 2015 at Heritage Pointe Golf Course with the alumni long drive competition at 8:45 a.m. 100% of the proceeds from the tournament will directly support Cerebral Palsy Kids and Families.
“Every year the Calgary Flames Alumni Association looks forward to continuing the tradition of this tournament,” states Dana Murzyn, Tournament Chair. “The Flames Alumni are proud members of the community and we are pleased to host this tournament and honoured to be able to give back to a community that we are so passionate about.”
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 $2.4 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 and Families provide family-focused support, resources, programs and opportunities to Calgary area individuals and families affected by Cerebral Palsy. In response to the largest community needs, they have developed successful flagship programs including their Family Support Program, Adaptive Bike Program, and Medical Equipment/Technology Support. Funds raised from the 2015 Masters Tournament will directly support the organization’s nationally recognized adapted bike program, which custom-fits bikes for kids with physical challenges and helps all children experience the simple joy of riding a bike.
The Flames Alumni Masters Tournament wishes to thank their many sponsors. For more information on Cerebral Palsy Kids and Families, please visit, calgarycp.org.
