Scott Smed Invitational.
One Event, Many Good Causes.
Thank you for joining us for the 2013 Scott Smed Invitational golf tournament. Held on Sept. 16, 2013, this year’s tournament was an outstanding success. 144 golfers, 40 sponsors, and more than 50 volunteers transformed a day of golf into an activity that gives back to the community all year long.
This year, funds raised will be directed to Community Kitchen Program of Calgary, Parks Foundation Calgary and to support local infancy and pregnancy loss programs ensuring the Scott Smed Rooms remain a sanctuary for grieving families. This year funds will also go towards supporting local efforts to assist Calgarians who were affected by the June floods.
From providing a private and quiet place to grieve the loss of an infant, to creating safe and fun places to play, to making healthy lunches for hungry kids, the Scott Smed Invitational goes a long way in making a big difference in the Calgary community.
Because of your support a new Scott Smed Room opened at the South Health Campus this fall. “The loss of a baby is a devastating experience for a family and though parents may experience and wish to honour their loss in different ways, spending time with their baby and creating memories of their baby’s life can be very comforting during this very difficult time,” explains Lori Anderson, Vice President, South Health Campus.
“Having a quiet and comfortable room where parents can be together with their baby is an important support that Health Care Providers can offer families. Through the generosity of Peter and Shannon Smed and supporters of their Annual Scott Smed Golf Tournament, South Health Campus will be able to provide this supportive space for families experiencing the loss of their baby.”
With your generosity we had another great year. Over 13 years we have raised almost $1 million for those who need a helping hand in our community!
Next year we’ll see you again on Sept. 15, 2014 at the Cottonwood Golf & Country Club and while we can’t promise another sunny day, we can promise another great day of doing good!
