PMAST is embarking on our exciting venture once again with Birdies for Kids (BFK)! We are proud to be part of this charitable initiative, a non-profit program run under the Calgary Shaw Charity Classic Foundation. In three short years the Shaw Charity Classic has raised over $8.5 million for charity, with children and youth being the primary benefactors of those dollars.
Helping kids and changing lives in our community is what this foundation is all about, which mirrors PMAST’s goals and objectives. Funds raised for PMAST through BFK helped us to provide conflict management and dispute resolution training to more Calgary youth, their schools, families and communities. This training helps them to build better relationships and reduce bulling and violence in all aspects of their lives.
While PMAST agrees that providing counselling services for victims and programs to raise awareness are important, they are not enough. To really make a lasting difference in combating bullying and family violence, we must be pro-active and reach these youth before tragedies occur.
We need your support! In order to provide this service to Calgary youth we need funds – funds for program development and delivery. We have many more requests for our service than we can provide, especially with very limited school budgets. You can help us…

Let’s all get out and support the Shaw Charity Classic. It is a great honour for Calgary to host the PGA TOUR Champions event which brings players like Fred Couples, Colin Montgomerie, Mark O’Meara and 2015 champion Jeff Maggert .
