Flames Charity Golf Classic raises $350,000
CALGARY, AB -- Calgary Flames forward Alex Tanguay led his team as the low gross winners at the Calgary Flames Celebrity Charity Golf Classic held Thursday, September 8th. This year’s golf tournament took place at two different golf courses – Links of GlenEagles and Country Hills Golf Club with over 375 golfers total at the two courses.

The 31st Annual Charity Classic in support of the Flames Foundation for Life raised over $350,000. Since its inception 30 years ago, the tournament has raised over $4.8 million for local charities.

Another highlight of the day came from Rene Bourque’s group when Patrick Kenny won $25,000 after shooting a hole in one, sponsored by Truman Insurance, at Country Hills Golf Club.
