Signature Events

The Alberta Cancer Foundation is proud to bring together the diversity in Albertans land, history and cultures through music, art, sport and cuisine from across the province to celebrate all things Albertan at our three signature events.

All four of our signature events in 2020 will be supporting one of the Foundation’s signature programs – the Patient Financial Assistance Program (PFAP).

A cancer diagnosis not only brings physical and emotional challenges, but can also be a huge financial burden to patients and their families. Our Patient Financial Assistance Program means Albertan families can focus on what matters most – healing.

We hope you will consider joining us at one (or more) of these signature events across the province. If you have any questions about how you can get involved, please click on the following events below to learn more, or contact Michelle Body at michelle.body@albertacancer.ca or at 403.476.2421.

In 2016, the longstanding Don LaBerge Memorial Golf Classic joined forces with the Golf for the Cure in memory of Janice E. Crist. The tournament was a huge success and raised $50,000 for the Patient Financial Assistance Program to make life better for Albertans facing cancer

Together these tournaments joined forces with the Alberta Cancer Foundation to kick off the 1st Annual Alberta Cancer Foundation Golf Classic in 2017. With the help of our supporters and generous donors, over $830,000 net has been raised for patients facing cancer across the province.
