Suicide Prevention Resource Centre would like to thank our donors and supporters for their contributions through the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta.
$2,500 was received as a combination of the Hannah Ouellette Memorial Fund and The Community Foundation Fund to be used toward The Breakfast Club Program (workshops and retreats for youth).
Additionally, $2,000 was received as a Nourish the North Grant to support the Tough Enough to Talk About it Program (Men at Risk).
Suicide Prevention Resource Centre staff and board members are very grateful for the generous community support of our efforts to prevent suicide in our region. Grass root contributions are an integral part of our ability to provide programming and services and help save lives. This year's fundraiser, held on October 1, raised over $68,000.
Time to buy your golf passport! Passports for July's four-day KMSC Law Golf event cost $285 and include golfing [the 18-hole event], a cart and $200 in "funny money." The funny money is given by players in the form of a certificate to the not-for-profit organizations. [They also have lots of GP Golf & Country Club coupons - $800 in total value.]
"The nice thing from a participant's perspective is that don't have to reach into their wallet every hole," Carlstrom explained. "They can just reach into their book, tear off a coupon, give it to the not-for-profit and still have the same effect as giving them actual money."
With 175 passports available in total, Carlstrom encourages people of all ages and skill levels to come out in support of all the organizations.
For more information on the event, the not-for-profit organizations or to register, visit www.kmsclawgolfevent.ca. To purchase passports drop by any of the 18 not-for-profit organizations or the Grande Prairie Golf & Country Club.
