This remarkable event, generously sponsored by Imperial and supported by numerous other dedicated sponsors, raised $21,700 in support of the organization’s mission to inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold in the Wood Buffalo region.
The 29th Annual Golf Tournament Fore Girls Inc. drew a vibrant and enthusiastic crowd of over 90 golfers who came together for a day of friendly competition and a meaningful cause.
This year’s ’emotion’ themed event encouraged our golfers to wear their hearts on their sleeves, expressing their happiness or frustrations on the course through their attire and emotions.

The funds raised during the tournament will directly benefit Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta’s programs and initiatives, which focus on building confidence, developing leadership skills, and promoting STEM education, among other essential life skills for young girls.
“It was wonderful to host the 29th Annual Golf Tournament Fore Girls Inc with the theme ‘emotion’.
