Flames forward Curtis Glencross and over 140 golfers gathered at Calgary’s Springbank Links Golf Course for the charity event.
The day of golf was preceded with a registration event held at Flames Central on Monday, July 26th where celebrity participants were auctioned off followed by performances by country recording artists Aaron Pritchett and Gord Bamford.
This is the second annual Glencross Invitational in benefit of Calgary Crime Stoppers.
