Gord Bamford is not only a chart topping country singer and songwriter. Him and his team are also nominated for 16 CCMA Awards this fall. Impressive….? Yes. But this country boy gives as good as he gets. On July 31 and August 1 he hosted his 5th Annual Golf Classic in Lacombe Alberta. The event raised over $270,000 for the Bamford Foundation. That brings the grand total from 5 years to over $1,000,000! The foundation distributes the monies to various children’s charities including, the Make a Wish Foundation, Big Brothers, Big Sisters and other children based charities There were 16 country artists performing on the show including many of our members. Beverly Mahood, Jason Blaine, Kira Isabella, Jake Matthews and Wendell Ferguson performed and hosted. Casey Clarke from CMT was also in attendance as were Sony’s Anthony Farrauto and Warren Copnick. As well as country music stars there were many NHL players both at the gala and at the next days golf match. Here are some pictures of the event.
