The Athabasca Tribal Council (ATC) announced the details for their first-ever Athabasca Tribal Council Golf Classic.
Partnering with the EventWorx Corporation, the tournament will also run alongside the annual Oil Sands Trade Show.
Also, Miskanaw Golf Course will be the site for the tournament.
Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation Chief Allan Adam said the event will raise funds for the Post-Secondary Student Support Program.
“These funds will provide needed financial support to ATC students. This will enable them to gain access to post-secondary education, and to graduate with skills needed to pursue their dreams and individual careers.”
Wes Scott, President and CEO of EventWorx, said the company looks forward to working with the ATC.
“This is an investment in community, and will provide much-needed scholarship funding to support Indigenous youth in earning their post-secondary education.”
Furthermore, Scott added the team will draw on 15 years of experience hosting the Oil Sands Charity Golf Classic.
Registration for the Athabasca Tribal Council Golf Classic for individuals costs $295 plus tax.
Teams of four pay $1180 plus tax.
The fees cover play on Miskanaw’s 18-hole course and include cart, lunch, banquet dinner, as well as prizes throughout the event.
To register or inquire about sponsorship, contact ATC Director of Education and Culture, Elena Gould at (780) 881-6137.
“Not only is it an impactful event,” said Chief Allan Adam, “but it is also an opportunity to network, enjoy the beautiful scenery, and find more ways to work together within our community.”
