Heritage Property Corporation Annual Art Competition Gala
On October 20, finalists in the 2009 Heritage Property Corporation Art Competion gathered at Central United Church for the announcement of this year's winner.
First prize was awarded to Carl White for his oil on canvas submission entitled "Fiori". Mr. White receives a $10,000 commission to create a piece to be permanently displayed in the lightwell of the historic Lougheed Building. Second prize went to Lisa Brawn for her painted woodcut, "North-West Mounted Police ca. 1882-1890". Kevin Yee took home third prize for his lightbox installation "Man + Guitar".
The event also featured music from the Woodhouse Big Band, and the unveiling of last year's grand prize commission "Inherit" by Amy Dryer. Taking one full year to complete, this oil on canvas painting stands an astounding 18 feet high. The piece will be installed in the lightwell at the Lougheed Building in the coming months.

2009 Kids "Fore" Golf Tournament
On May 23, 2009, the second annual Kids "Fore" Golf Tournament was held at the Crystal Ridge Golf Course in Okotoks. Heritage Property Corporation and Kids Up Front Foundation partnered to organize the event at which 72 kids from Calgary and the surrounding area spent the day learning to golf. The tournament was was hosted by Global Calgary news anchor, Brienne Hurlbur, with help from Harvey the Hound, Farley Fox and Wes Lysack of the Calgary Stampeders. The event included swing lessons, a delicious lunch in the club house, T-shirts, prizes for every child, as well as a backpack bag loaded with goodies. With plenty of sunshine and laughter, the day was nothing short of a success.
We look forward to another great tournament in 2010. If you are interested in sponsoring a team of children for next year's Kids "Fore" Golf Tournament, please email Erin at email@example.com.
