Calgarians (and beyond) enjoyed a picnic style lunch outside the Elbow Springs golf course before teeing off and making their way through the sprawling 27 hold course to enjoy a day on the green. The three courses (Mountain View, Springs, and Elbow) each offer stunning, unique views for players to enjoy; smoky rocky mountains, deep ponds filled with spirited leaping trout, and crystal creeks rushing past towering evergreens and graceful willows. The day concluded with dinner at the club and a silent and live auction, hosted by Jay Mehr from Shaw Communications.

The inaugural event was such a success that the event was turned into a three year series, which raised thousands of dollars for the charity, and brought together some of Canada’s top modern and contemporary art supporters.
