Our Volunteers

The Peanut Butter Classic was started by Heather Forsyth (former MLA). 

Heather wanted to do something to encourage women helping women and children.

She called a group of passionate friends and together they formed The Peanut Butter Classic, a charity golf tournament.

They chose a woman’s charity to support and also decided to collect for food bank donations. When Heather called the Calgary Food Bank, the number one item required at the time was peanut butter. This was the inspiration for the unique name for this charity golf classic.

Heather remains incredibly proud of what this wonderful group of dedicated women has been able to accomplish over the last 17 years.

The Peanut Butter Classic has raised over $2 million dollars to help women and children and has provided thousands of jars of peanut butter to the Calgary Food Bank!
