Donating to a Cause
Well, of course, they couldn't deposit the BIG cheque - it wouldn't fit in the bank machine! So the Federation girls, Dawn Dietz (FedGas) and Janeth Mitchell (AFREA), delivered the cashable version in person to the MS Society of Canada - AB & NWT Division. Dr. Garry Wheeler (President) and Johanna Green (Northern Regional Director) were on hand to receive our donation for $22,000.00. We are honored to continue to support this cause in hopes they find a cure! In the meantime, they provide essential programs and services to those who are suffering with the disease - those who live in rural areas where access to big city facilities is limited. Great job, everyone!

Helen Keller said, "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much" and working together in this manner is proof that collaboration brings bigger rewards.
The sun shone bright on our 10th Annual Federation Charity Golf Classic held on Thursday, August 11th at Goose Hummock Golf Resort. Thank you so much to everyone who had a hand in making this a successful and amazing day! We raised another $22,600 to add to our total contributions over the past 10 years. Money donated to the MS Cause is money raised through registrations, sponsorships, golf-day auction, and donations.
Your generosity helped us raise over $25,000 last year and another $22,600 this year, our 10th Annual Event. Proceeds go to the MS Society of Canada, Alberta & Northwest Territories Division. Over the last 10 years, this event has raised over $257,000! Our contributions to the MS Society go towards funding programs and services for rural Albertans living with multiple sclerosis. The MS Society's work does not end until there is a cure for this disease.
