ABOUT

LAST YEAR'S EVENT

On Thursday, July 06, 2023, at Heritage Pointe Golf Club CAREERS held the 13th annual Eric Newell Kidz in Careers Golf Classic. We had over 200 golfers and raised over $150,000 in support of high school student internships across Alberta.

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

ABOUT KIDZ IN CAREERS

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! We continue to look forward to a day of fun and friendships – all in support of a great cause – Alberta youth!
