ATB Financial Classic

This year, Calgary’s Prostate Cancer Centre had the honour of being the recipient charity at the 13th annual ATB Financial Classic held at Country Hills Golf Course in Calgary. After 4 rounds of intense golf, Hayden Buckley walked away claiming his first ATB Financial Classic title and the tournament ended with over $38,000 raised. We are so grateful to ATB for choosing us again in 2020 and look forward to another week of top-notch golf.

The ATB Financial Classic tournament has become one of the best opportunities for golf fans to get a look at the sport’s next generation of stars.

Village NUTRaiser

Thank you to Jim Button, Village Brewery, and Bottlescrew Bills for continuing the annual tradition of creating a salty ale out of bull testicles. This brew has now raised over  $65,000 in the past 7 years.  

Inclement weather didn’t dampen the attendance nor camaraderie July 4 at Bottlescrew Bill’s. Local celebrities Bret “The Hitman” Hart, Gerry Forbes, and Tony Spoletini, loaned their brewmaster skills to the samplings, ensuring the $100/per pint brew was snapped up at a great rate.
