30th Annual Y Giving Golf Classic
Mr. Nick Parkinson, President and CEO of the YMCA of Northern Alberta, invites members, donors, vendors and the community at large to participate in the 30th Annual Y Giving Golf Classic. Whether putting in a 4-some or becoming a sponsor, your support will assist us in ensuring that no individual or family is turned away from the YMCA for financial reasons. Last year’s event raised over $60,000 and maybe more importantly, raised awareness of how the YMCA is making our community stronger, one person at a time.

June 6, 2019 - 29th Annual Y Giving Golf Classic
This year’s annual golf classic started in the rain but ended with the glorious sun peaking through the clouds. Though cold and a little damp, golfers and volunteers alike remained in high spirits following a hearty “Links” breakfast.
Following a rousing warmup instructed by our Health, Fitness and Aquatics team, the golfers were off! Throughout the course, members of our program teams hosted holes and shared their Y stories and the amazing outcomes they are achieving as a result of the much needed financial support of our community. There may have also been pyrohy, hot dogs and some other yummy treats as well!
Returning to the clubhouse – complete with roaring fire – we bid on silent auction items, bought some more 50/50 tickets (ultimately raising $2,000!), learned more about the reason we were all there, and enjoyed fellowship and barbecue together.
June 6th also happened to be the 175th birthday of the YMCA, opening it’s doors for the first time in the UK so of course there was cake! It was a great day, raising over $62,000 for support of our programs.
We couldn’t have accomplished this without the generosity of our volunteers, sponsors and golfers. Thank you! And we look forward to seeing you next year.
