Thank You For Your Support
We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of the people who attended, sponsored, donated, or assisted in any way with the 7th Annual Lindsay Rachel Giacomelli Memorial Golf Tournament. We had an outstanding day. We can’t thank you enough for your support and for your recognition of Lindsay.
Thanks to your participation we were sold out again, with a full slate of 128 golfers, and an additional 20 people attending the dinner and silent auction. Response this year was outstanding with the event sold out on March 20, with 23 tournament sponsors. We even have the first sponsor and foursome booked and paid for next year’s tournament.
As a result of the successful turnout we raised approximately $32,700 at the event. Of this total, $3,000 will be donated directly to The Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation in support of the Special Children’s Fund by our Platinum Sponsor Warwick Industries Ltd, and $3,000 will be donated directly to the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry Regiment (PPCLI) Museum and Archives Gallery Renovation by our other Platinum Sponsor DG Valve Ltd.
The total donation this year from the fund will be $11,359. Each of our primary recipients will receive $5,000. The remainder will be donated to The Light Up Papua New Guinea Project in memory of Captain Nichola Goddard, Compassionate Friends (Calgary Chapter), and The Calgary Health Trust in support of the Foothills Hospital ICU.
The establishment of this fund provides our family extreme comfort in the knowledge that the fund will provide charitable donations to Calgary area causes forever, all in Lindsay’s name.
This event will happen again on Friday June 15, 2012 to coincide with Lindsay’s birthday of June 18. I hope you will join us again next year to celebrate and remember Lindsay at the 8th Annual Lindsay Giacomelli Memorial Golf Tournament.
Leslie & Gerald Giacomelli
