Welcome to the John Gignac Charity Classic

We invite you to join us in supporting the Gignac family in their time of need.

We have the honor to present to you the John Gignac Charity Golf Tournament.

A seasoned hospitality professional and lifelong supporter of Calgary’s best restaurants, John Gignac is well loved and highly regarded within Calgary’s restaurant community.  He is best known for his sharp wit, generosity and fierce loyalty amongst his closest friends and family.  Tragically though, in more recent years, John has quietly struggled as his health has seen a significant decline.  Shortly after John and his wife Katey learned that they were expecting their first baby, he was diagnosed with ALS.  Because of John’s young age and no prior medical history of the disease in his family, the news came as a shock to them, as well as all around him.

But in true John Gignac fashion, he has persevered, remaining positive despite the diagnosis and has welcomed not one, but two beautiful daughters into the world.  While John has continued to work to support his family, he now needs to focus his efforts on his home care.  Since learning of his prognosis in September 2021, John has seen a steep decline in his agility and dexterity.  His devoted wife Katey is dedicated to making sure he will be able to continue his care in the comfort of their own home.  

For this to happen, he needs our help.

Our goal is raise enough funds to assist this young family through this challenging stage and provide reassurance for our dear friend John.  We do this in the spirit of John, who has always lived, loved and dreamed big.

All contributions are welcomed, with your support you can make a big difference for this small family.

Thank you in advance for your support.
