17 Nov CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR AMAZING PARTNERS AT THE CALGARY STAMPEDERS FOOTBALL CLUB!
Nearly 300 of our kids and families will be cheering on our beloved Stamps on Sunday, November 20th at the Western Final being hosted at McMahon Stadium!
Kids Up Front wishes to extend a huge thank you and VERY LOUD Kids Up Front CHEER to our partners at the Calgary Stampeders Football Club for all their support over the last few years. Thank you for believing in us and endorsing our ticket donation program for your season ticket holders and fans! With your support and promotion of our program, we were able to send over 2,900 kids and their families to cheer on the Stamps this season!
Thank you for all your support to make this happen, both in the administration and ticket offices; it really does take a team to achieve success. We appreciate the efforts of Scott Bentley, Alex Snell, Andrew Swan, Max Campbell and Kelsey Molnar; your contributions have meant a seamless process for distributing donated tickets to our kids! We also really appreciate the kindness and helpfulness of those in your ticketing office when we are dealing with ticket transfers and Will Call pickups. Your extra efforts have brought football experiences to life for so many of our deserving kids! Thank you for displaying our thank you cards and T the Ticket in the ticket office!
This year marked a significant milestone as we also received donations of our very first suites at McMahon Stadium. One donor gave us their suite to use on Sept. 5 to watch the Stamps battle the Eskimos, and another suite was donated to the Sept. 17 game to watch Calgary take on Ottawa. Thank you to our gracious donors for making these events so special for our kids, and thank you to our wonderful volunteers from the Suite Ambassador program who host our families and make sure things go smoothly! We appreciate the help of Stampeders Football Club staff to facilitate these donations to Kids Up Front and fill suites with deserving kids that may otherwise remain empty.
As always, none of this would be possible without the donors who have come to know about us and the work that we do at Kids Up Front; our mission remains to give deserving kids free access to sporting, arts, cultural and recreational events that otherwise may not be possible for them. With the challenging provincial economy, we see more families than ever who are struggling. For many, attending a football game, spending a night out with loved ones cheering on a favorite team or player, can be a luxury. Rather than have seats go empty and tickets unused, Kids Up Front aims to fill those seats with kids and families that can use a night out! One little ticket, one big lift!
We also wish to extend a heartfelt thank you to the players who make our annual All In For Kids charity poker tournament an amazing success every year. We wish to thank Charleston Hughes, Bo Levi Mitchell, Quinn Smith, and Rene Paredes for all your support and joining us as our celebrities! Watch for news about our amazing 5th annual All In For Kids tournament being held Feb. 6, 2017.
Thank you Calgary Stampeders Football Club for an amazing season!
Good luck in the Western Final!
