On Thursday, July 08, 2021 at Heritage Pointe Golf Club CAREERS held the 11th annual Eric Newell ‘Kidz in Careers’ Golf Classic. We had 151 golfers this year and raised over $142,000 in support of high school student internships across Alberta.

Thanks to all the support from sponsors, golfers and volunteers for making this year’s event a great success. 

Thank you to Fort McKay, our presenting sponsor for 2021, for their support.

In 2009, we held our first Eric Newell ‘Kidz in Careers’ Golf Classic and paid tribute to its namesake, former Syncrude Canada CEO and CAREERS Founding Chair, Eric Newell. It’s been twelve years since the first tee off and we couldn’t be prouder to honour the work he started – helping Alberta youth on their path to rewarding careers. Thanks to the generous support of all our partners, this important annual fundraiser has raised over $1,000,000 for student programming!  And, although the tournament will look slightly different this year, as we will be following Alberta Covid-19 Health guidelines re: outdoor gatherings, we still promise you a day of fun and friendships – all in support of a great cause – Alberta youth!
