Scott Smed Invitational.
DRIVE FOR A MILLION
Join BOWEN Workforce Solutions for the 13th Annual Scott Smed Invitational Golf Tournament. With your help, we can reach a total of $1 million raised for Calgarians in need! Honouring the memory of Shannon Bowen-Smed and Peter Smed’s stillborn son, Scott, the annual golf tournament raises money for BOWEN’s SHINE Fund, which offers Support and Help to those in need, Implements and Nurtures social programs, and Engages Calgarians to make a difference in their community.
A LITTLE GREEN CAN GO A LONG WAY
Over the years, the Scott Smed Invitational has united golfers, sponsors, volunteers and donors through friendly competition, laughter, tears and the spirit of giving. In total, more than $875,000 has been raised, helping to create the Scott Smed Rooms at the Rockyview General Hospital, Foothills Medical Centre and the Peter Lougheed Hospital, as well as the Scott Smed Centre of Excellence planned for the South Health Campus. These facilities are an essential part of offering comfort and care to families experiencing the pain of infancy or pregnancy loss. Scott’s legacy of caring and hope is also honoured in Uganda through the Scott Smed Family Resource Centre and two renovated orphanage’s for abandoned children.
GIVE THE GIFTS OF HOPE, FOOD AND PLAY
This year’s Invitational will continue to support local infancy and pregnancy loss programs, and ensure the Scott Smed Rooms remain a sanctuary, offering the gift of hope to grieving families. Additional funds will be donated to the Community Kitchen Program of Calgary and the Parks Foundation Calgary, helping local kids lead healthy, active lives. Working with the Community Kitchen’s Souper Stars and Tummy Tamers programs, we bring the gift of food to hungry kids at local schools and playgrounds, giving them the fuel they need to learn and grow. Through the Parks Foundation, we build new playgrounds for neighbourhoods in need, giving Calgary’s kids safe, accessible places to play.
Thank you for your support. We couldn’t do it without you!
