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 8th 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 16 people attending the dinner and silent auction. Response this year was outstanding with the event sold out on January 30, with 23 tournament sponsors including 4 corporate Platinum Sponsors and 1 Platinum level private donation. We even have 5 golfers booked and paid for next year’s tournament.
As a result of the successful turnout we raised approximately $43,221 at the event. Of this total, $7,500 will be donated directly to The Mustard Seed in support of the Affordable Housing Initiative by our Platinum Sponsors Warwick Industries Ltd, Helical Pier Systems, DG Valve Systems, Lauren Concise and our private Platinum Donor.
The total donation this year from the fund will be $11,000. The Mustard Seed will receive $8,500 (for a total donation of $16,000 including the Platinum Sponsors contribution), $2,000 will go to Heart Beats, an organization offering support to families of children with congenital heart defects, and $500 to The Light Up Papua New Guinea Project in memory of Captain Nichola Goddard, This will help put solar powered LED lighting systems into medical clinics in isolated villages in Papua New Guinea..
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.
The next tee time for this event will be a 9:00 am shotgun start on Friday June 14, 2013 to coincide with Lindsay’s birthday of June 18. We will have some format changes for next year. I hope you will join us again next year to celebrate and remember Lindsay at the 9th Annual Lindsay Giacomelli Memorial Golf Tournament. Book early!
Leslie & Gerald Giacomelli
