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 9th 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 144 golfers. Response this year was outstanding with the event sold out on January 31, with 25 tournament sponsors, including 7 corporate Platinum Sponsors and 1 Platinum level private donation.
As a result of the successful turnout we raised approximately $44,770 at the event. Of this total, $12,000 will be donated directly to The Calgary Health Trust in support of specialized equipment for the Foothills Medical Centre Intensive Care Unit by our Platinum Sponsors Warwick Industries Ltd, Helical Pier Systems, DG Valve Systems, Lauren Concise, Exall Energy, Timbers Consulting, RN Engineering and our private Platinum Donor.
The remaining $32,770 will go directly into Lindsay’s Fund. The estimated value of Lindsay’s Fund (based on the June 10, 2013 statement) will be $340,988 as of July 15, 2013, and the fund will donate $13,264 this year.
The Lindsay Rachel Giacomelli Memorial Fund, through the Calgary Foundation, is an endowment; all donations to the fund remain there forever. Each year 4.5% of the fund’s value is designated for a charitable donation. This amount is essentially what the fund earns over the year as an investment.
The total donation this year from Lindsay’s Fund will be $13,264. $1,000 will go to The Light Up Papua New Guinea Project in memory of Captain Nichola Goddard www.nicholagoddard.com/lupng.php, 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 13, 2014. 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 10th Annual Lindsay Giacomelli Memorial Golf Tournament. Book early!
