Thanks to people like you, the Alberta Children’s Hospital has developed expertise in child health that’s truly leading edge. Children in our community now benefit from care that is among the best in the country and the world. Residents from the City of Airdrie are the 2nd biggest user of the Children’s Hospital after the City of Calgary. The work that they do to help children and families in need is truly second to none and there are positive examples of this found throughout our community.
In order to raise awareness and funds for the great work done at the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation, Woodside approached the Airdrie Chamber of Commerce about building an Airdrie Business Community Driven Fundraising Golf Event for the ABCHF. Beginning in 2009, Woodside and the Airdrie Chamber combined their efforts to produce the 1st Chamber Classic in support of the Alberta Children’s Hospital. Woodside donated all golf related revenues from the day and a portion of Food & Beverage revenues collected directly to the ABCHF. Both silent and live auctions helped us push the numbers even higher and a matching program from CN allowed us to raise more than $28,000 for the ABCHF in year 1! Since then, we have continued with the push to raise funds for the hospital and have had local families impacted by the extraordinary work of the doctors, nurses and volunteers of the hospital share their stories with guests of the event. To date, this program has raised over $100,000.
