Hartnell & MacArthur Celebrity Golf Classic

Hartnell & MacArthur Celebrity Golf Classic

A week ago, the Hartnell & MacArthur Celebrity Golf Classic was held in my hometown of Lloydminster and once again what an amazing event the be a part of.  Two of Lloydminster's NHL stars Clarke MacArthur and Scott Hartnell hosted what turned out to be another very successful fundraiser for their hometown. 

Once again the fesitivities kicked off with a wonderful bbq at Fountain Tire (the title sponser of this whole event) where you could meet and chat with Clarke and Scott and some of the other celebrities who came out to support this fabulous event.  The autograph session followed at Servus Centre and and wow did the kids and parents ever come out to meet some of their idols.  When I arrived there was already a huge line up and I don't the line ever shortened to meet Scott and Clarke until the very end.  The ever wonderful Co-Op sponsered the autograph session this year which was great as they had some very delicious cookies which of course I had to sample!  That evening the registration night was held for all the people golfing in the classic and also gave them a chance to meet and mingle with the different celebrities that they will be golfing with.  This year the committee brought in a couple of comedians for the entertainment; needless to say they were quite hilarious!

The next morning was the main event, golf day!  Luckily the weather held off for the most part, a little rain fell but nothing to complain about as the sun was shining for the most part!  Just like last year, everyone looked like they were having a great time!  I mean how can you not have fun spending the day on a golf course with friends and celebrities and overall some awesome people!  Luckily this year I managed to not repeat as having the best sunburn!  Thank you to the clouds for that one ;)  After a wonderful day of golf it was time for some delicious food and some fun auction times at the banquet.  Just like last year a lot of money was raised for some amazing local charities!  The banquet ended with The Trews performing and wow what an amazing performance!  

I had such a great time photographing this fantabulous event again, as always the celebrities were wonderful (a hightlight was definitely getting to meet The Trews)!  It's so great to see people giving back and to see the amazing support in our small city.  The money raised rivals that from tournaments in larger cities which just goes to show the awesome generousity in this community! I've posted some of my favorite photos from the event below to check out.  I have all the photos from the event posted here if you want to see more of the good times that took place over the two days.

Again, it was wonderful to part of such a great event and I look forward to it next year! xo
