Cross Cancer Institute Golf Classic

Where: Glendale Golf & Country Club, Edmonton, AB

Welcome to the 25th Anniversary of the Cross Cancer Institute Golf Classic!

Since 1989, the Cross Cancer Institute Golf Classic has raised more than $9 million to pioneer revolutionary projects in support of patients at Alberta’s own Cross Cancer Institute and beyond. Thanks in large part to funds raised by this event, researchers at the Cross Cancer Institute have expanded the boundaries of cancer research, treatment and patient care in Alberta and across the globe.

Combined with companion events held across the province, the Cross Cancer Institute Golf Classic is the facility’s premier annual fundraising event and has introduced groundbreaking projects to the Cross such as the Investigational New Drug Program Рthe first of its kind on the Prairies Рoffering patients access to chemotherapy drugs years before they become available in the marketplace. Proceeds from this tournament have also helped to fund the first PET/CT scanner of its type in Canada and one of only a handful in North America, which will allow staff to detect cancers in their earliest state and deliver the right treatment to the right patient at the right time.

This year, the Cross Cancer Institute Golf Classic celebrates it’s 25th anniversary at the Glendale Golf & Country Club, one of the premier golf course layouts in Alberta. Join us in being part of this milestone event by becoming a sponsor today.
