11 years ago, we held our first Golf Classic and paid tribute to its namesake, former Syncrude Canada CEO and CAREERS founding chair, Eric Newell. As a leader in the community, Eric’s steadfast commitment and continual advocacy for youth in Alberta has been nothing short of inspirational. 11 years since the first tee off, we couldn’t be more proud to honour the work he started – helping Alberta youth on their path to rewarding careers.
Because of the generous support of all our partners, the Golf Classic has raised over $1,000,000 for student programming in the last decade! Thanks to all who joined us for a day of golf in support of CAREERS: The Next Generation and are helping enable tomorrow’s workforce today.
While we are disappointed to have to cancel the tournament this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are grateful to our sponsors for continuing to support our work through these changing times. We will be back in 2021 and look forward to a great day of golf in the sun, and celebrations of accomplishment with our partners, alumni, and students!
