Successful year for golf classic

  • Jul. 13, 2011 3:04 p.m.

The Red Deer Regional Health Foundation and Love of Children Golf Classic Committee are thrilled to announce the sixth annual Love of Children Golf Classic raised net proceeds of over $360,000.

Since its incorporation in 2005, the Love of Children Committee has raised 1.5 million dollars-funds which have been used to support many new medical equipment purchases and children’s facilities.

“We can not express the gratitude we have towards all of our very generous and loyal supporters. We continue to appreciate the special partnership we have with the Kinsmen Club of Red Deer and the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation,” said Joan Donald Jr., a committee chair along with Dr. Brian Isaac.

The Kinsmen Club of Red Deer made a $340,000 donation to the event last year- a single record donation for the Kinsmen.

The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation donated $140,000 last year- also a record single donation amount. These two donations are to be distributed over three years, making next year the final installment of the major donations from these two organizations.

“Thanks to the support of the community, we can continue to fund renovations at the Pediatric Ward at the Red Deer Regional Hospital.

“These improvements benefit all Central Alberta families who are faced with young children in need of special care” says RDRH Foundation Executive Director Jacqueline Brooks.

Highlights of this year’s event, held June 12-13, included a Black Tie Cocktail Reception in the Garden Courtyard area at the Red Deer lodge Hotel and Conference Centre, and another fabulous day of golf followed by the live entertainment of Emerson Drive at a private concert at Red Deer Golf & Country Club.

Since 2005, the Mandate of the Love of Children Committee has been to raise funds for the express purpose of enhancing health care for Children’s Health Services by way of items directly related to Children’s Health.
