Frequently Asked Questions

What is the location of the Empire Golf Classic?
What is the dress code for the Empire Golf Classic?

The dress code for the golf tournament is: Golf Attire (no denim, collared golf shirt), soft spikes only

If I make a pledge to the Empire Golf Classic in 2024 does that guarantee my place at the 2025 event?

The first right of refusal for the tournament will be offered to Platinum, Diamond, and Emerald sponsorship categories for the 2025 Empire Golf Classic.

Will a tax receipt be issued for my sponsorship?

We are unable to issue tax receipts for the event. Empire Company Limited is not a registered charity and does not qualify for issuing receipts. In addition, tax receipts are typically not issued for sponsorships, due to the company or organization receiving some commercial benefit associated with the support (i.e. signage, hosting opportunities for golfers, merchandise, sponsor acknowledgement) Although your company will not receive a tax receipt, rest assured that 100% of the proceeds raised will support our amazing charitable partners!

How are the funds that are raised by pledging to the Empire Golf Classic distributed?

100% of the funds raised support our charitable partners across Canada such as Special Olympics Canada, The Grocery Foundation, more than 400 food banks and meals programs, 13 children’s hospital foundations, and Kids Help Phone.

Will my contact at Empire be aware that our company has sponsored the 2024 Empire Golf Classic?

Yes! The Empire team will be getting weekly fundraising updates. The names or logos of companies that have contributed will also be posted on the event website.

I requested to pay by Vendor Debit when will the Debit Memo be processed?

The Debit Memo will be processed within two weeks of your registration.

I paid by credit card. Why is the merchant account name on the receipt Smile Productions and not Empire Company Limited?

Smile Productions has worked with us on delivering the golf tournament since 2003. They handle the development of the Registration Form, website, and are processing all credit card transactions again this year on behalf of the Empire Golf Classic to make payment seamless.

Can I invite an Empire employee to golf with my team?

We ask that you please do not include a Empire employee as a guest in your roster. We will work closely with the Merchandising team and other areas of the business to ensure an appropriate Empire employee is matched with your guests.

What if I cannot accept the sponsor gifts?

Any items not redeemed that evening result in additional revenue for our charitable partners.
