On Monday, August 29th, 2022 the 11th annual Liberty Classic took place in Edmonton at the Quarry Golf Club.
After missing a year due to COVID, then enduring +9C degrees and rain in 2021, our golfers and volunteers enjoyed sunny skies and warm temperatures once again.
The voice of the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers – Jack Michaels, kicked the day off announcing the Alarm.com $1,000,000 Shootout – which gave three golfers, one shot at winning a million dollars. Unfortunately none of them were able to hole their shot from 165 yards out (or even hit the green), but their disappointment was soon alleviated by the 11 different Food Trucks on the course serving everything from Empanadas to Butter Chicken Tacos (we also had our first taste of ‘smoked chocolate chip cookies’).
The Edmonton Down Syndrome Society (EDSS) is dedicated to improving the lives of individuals born with Down syndrome. They provide opportunities and experiences for people with Down syndrome (Ds) to learn, grow and strive for their individual potential in their home, school and community life. By creating awareness about the unique abilities and potential that lies within each and every person born with Ds, our world becomes empowered with knowledge, compassion and inspiration. The EDSS has a special connection to Liberty founder Nate Baldry:
