Cheering For Shane Homes This Holiday Season!

21 Dec Cheering For Shane Homes This Holiday Season!

The joy of the holiday season is upon us, bringing us close to family, friends and loved ones, and creating happy memories for years to come.  As we look forward to spending time with those we love, we have a sense of gratitude for those that have supported us, nurtured us and helped us get to where we are!

At Kids Up Front, we are grateful for the longstanding support of Shane Homes over the years, a true community builder.  With the support of Shane Homes, Kids Up Front gives kids and families opportunities to create family memories, share an exciting night out together, and remove barriers to access to some of Calgary’s finest events and attractions.  We thank you for investing in us, and helping Calgary’s kids to learn, grow, and experience all that Calgary has to offer!

Shane Homes is a significant contributor to the success of our programs, allowing us to deliver over 30,000 experiences worth over $1.5 million to deserving kids in 2017.  We expect to surpass this number in 2018, when all the final numbers are in on December 31!

Thank you to everyone at Shane Homes for your financial support through the Yards For Kids program, whereby every Calgary Stampeders offensive yard means that $1 is donated to Kids Up Front programs! During Calgary Stampeders Vs Edmonton Eskimos games, this grows to $2 per offensive yard!  This season, we are excited to share that this raised $10,000 for Kids Up Front programs.  A huge thank you to everyone that makes this program possible throughout the season, and ensures its continued success.

It was particularly exciting for all of those who got to attend the Western Final, and then finally get to witness the thrill of our Calgary Stampeders bringing home the Grey Cup! 

Shane Homes also supports our programs through donations of football and hockey tickets, as well as the Shane Homes suite at the Saddledome for Hitmen games.  Our kids and families absolutely love being treated like VIPs, with a suite offering them great views, right in the action, and privacy or comfort for those with high needs or medical concerns.  Thank you!

With another football season wrapped up, we are grateful for all the support we receive from Shane Homes throughout the year, creating magic, memories and time with loved ones for those who need a little lift!

Thank you for all you do throughout our community to make Calgary an amazing home for everyone!
