CALGARY, June 4, 2014 /CNW/ - The 65 Roses Ladies Golf Classic is pleased to announce that Gibson Energy Inc. has joined the fight against cystic fibrosis as the presenting sponsor for this prestigious event. We are thrilled to have Gibson join our team as we continue the work that is improving the lives of those with cystic fibrosis and that will ultimately find a control or cure.
Monday, June 23, 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the 65 Roses Ladies Golf Classic, it is one of the longest running, ladies only golf tournaments in Calgary and is held at the beautiful Earl Grey Golf Course.
The 65 Roses Ladies Golf Classic has raised close to $900,000 to date. In honour of our 25th anniversary we have committed to breaking the $1 million mark – we need to raise $100,000 to reach this goal! Lady golfers, sponsors, prizes and donations are still needed to help us succeed.
Gibson Energy is one of the largest independent midstream companies in Canada. They have been providing integrated energy services to North America for the last 60 years. Gibson believes in the power of community investment and supporting organizations who are dedicated to making a difference.
Cystic Fibrosis Canada is one of the world's top three charitable organizations committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. We invest more in life-saving cystic fibrosis research and clinical care than any other non-governmental agency in Canada. As a result, Canadians with cystic fibrosis have one of the highest median survival rates in the world.
