Philanthropy in Action: Thank you to the Larry Carey Charity Golf Classic!

Posted on Sep 18, 2017 4:35:07 PM

For 25 years the Larry Carey Charity Golf Classic has been raising money for local charities. This year they raised $35,000 in support of Habitat for Humanity!

Hosted by Carey Management and in honour of the late Larry Carey, founder of Wallace and Carey, this annual golf tournament brings together members of the Calgary community for a fun day of golf, food and drinks, all in the name of raising money for charity!

Think 130 golfers, over 60 dedicated volunteers, and (despite our record hot summer every other day), a freezing cold rainy morning topped with nostalgia and enthusiasm for a great cause.

This year for their 26th annual event they went above and beyond their fundraising goal of $25 000 (they raised $35 000) and had a great time doing it! Each hole had a unique 70’s theme (think Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Disco) and tons of food and prizes.
