It's That Time Again!
The 2015, 11th Annual Charity Golf Classic in support of the Lindsay Rachel Giacomelli Memorial Fund (through The Calgary Foundation) will be held on Friday June 12, 2015 at The Elbow Springs Golf Club in Calgary, Alberta. The format this year will be a shotgun start at 9:00 am for all groups, and we should be done and on our way home by 3:30 pm.
Thanks to your generous support last year, we raised over $48,000 at the event. This allowed us to make $25,384 in charitable donations in 2014 consisting of $10,500 from our Platinum Sponsors, and $14,884 from Lindsay’s Fund. $37,898 was deposited into Lindsay’s Fund which as of November 16, 2014 was valued at $408,386.
The Lindsay Rachel Giacomelli Memorial Fund was established in Lindsay’s name as a memorial to her short life (June 18, 1984 to March 18, 2005). The goal of the fund is to keep Lindsay’s name and presence alive and to reflect her generous and caring spirit (www.lindsaygiacomelli.com).
The fund will provide charitable donations to Calgary area causes forever, all in Lindsay’s name. This year’s primary donation will be made to the Kids Help Phone. Thanks in part to your support, Kids Help Phone can be there for the 725,000 young people in Alberta between the ages of 5 and 20 – approximately 20% of the province’s population.
Kids rely on the Help Phone for help with a wide variety of issues, from struggles with mental health to cyber-bullying, self-harm and abuse, relationships at home and school, and everything between. In fact, they reach out to the counselors over 500 times every single day.
We are accepting sponsors and registrations until April 30, 2015; however, I must warn you…in the last 3 years we were fully subscribed by January 31! This year we already have our returning Tournament Sponsor (Helical Pier Systems), returning Platinum Sponsors with commitments, Warwick Industries, Atlas Oil & Gas Process Systems Inc. and Lauren Engineers & Constructors, ULC., returning golf cart sponsors CMR Fabricators and Exile Automation; and returning Scotch Marshall Sponsor Accurata as well as 11 golf spots already paid and committed to. Please reply early. This year we will be looking for multiple Platinum sponsors. Thank‐you to all past sponsors and to the returning sponsors for 2015. We look forward to seeing you at the Elbow Springs Golf Club in Calgary, Alberta on Friday June 12th.
