CALGARY, AB -- The Calgary Flames Alumni Association is excited to announce that 2014 marks the 20th year of the Calgary Flames Alumni Masters Tournament. The Masters Tournament, presented by Willow Park Wine and Spirits, is an annual charity golf tournament hosted by the alumni. This year the tournament will be held on Thursday, May 29, 2014 at Heritage Pointe Golf Course. Proceeds from the tournament will directly support Cerebral Palsy Kids and Families and Hospice Calgary.
“The Calgary Flames Alumni Association is pleased to continue the tradition of hosting this tournament,” states Dana Murzyn, Tournament Chair. “The Flames Alumni are proud to be actively involved in the community, and this tournament is an example of just one of those community initiatives.”
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 $2.3 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 and Hospice Calgary.
Cerebral Palsy Kids and Families provides 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 Clinics, and Medical Equipment/Technology Support.
Hospice Calgary embraces children, teens and adults who are coping with life-threatening illness, sudden or expected death. At Sage Centre and Rosedale Hospice, specialists provide individual counseling, group support, workshops and 24-hour end-of-life care.
The Flames Alumni Masters Tournament wishes to thank their many sponsors. For more information on either of the charities supported by this year’s Masters Tournament, please visit, calgarycp.org or hospicecalgary.com.
