26 Jan Grateful for our Supporters and Friends at Shane Homes!
We are so grateful to our friends at Shane Homes for their generous support throughout the year! Shane Homes is a shining example of a true community builder in our city, and their contributions benefit our citizens in many incredible ways. We are extremely thankful for their trust in us and their continued longstanding partnership. Working together, we are able to remove barriers to access to sporting, arts, cultural and recreational events for thousands of Calgary kids and their families every year. 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. Thank you!
We wish to thank Shane Homes for their 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.
Shane Homes has also been a supporter of the Kids Up Front Calgary Stampede Parade Float for three years in a row, stepping up to be part of its debut in 2015! That was an incredible achievement for our small team, and we could not have done it without our Shane Homes partner and their volunteers.
Shane Homes is also a significant supporter through donations of game tickets for our kids and families, as well as being a part of our suite program, donating the Shane Homes suite at the Scotiabank Saddledome for Hitmen games! Our kids and families absolutely love being treated like VIPs in suites at the Saddledome; it provides a great view of the event and privacy and comfort for families dealing with illness or managing small children. It truly creates lasting memories for our kids. Thank you!
We know that Shane Homes and their staff support many other community initiatives and nonprofit organizations, making our city a better place to live for everyone. Calgary is truly a special place, with special people, making special things happen. We are grateful to be a part of it!
