Word of the year - Cancelled

... but with your help we can make it Charity!

As cooperatives we have a social responsibility to our communities. By cancelling our golf tournament for this year, we are putting your safety first. This would be our 14th year and, to date, we have raised over $300,000 with your help. We would like to invite you to keep the momentum going by asking you to consider a donation to the MS Society - AB & NWT Division through our MS Team Page. Consider donating to this great cause what you would spend to participate in or sponsor our event. For your convenience, use this donation page link: Join Us in the Fight to End MS

Thank you for your generosity. 

Update: As of July 3rd we have raised 1/2 our goal! Thank you so much for your continued support. The MS Society - AB & NWT Division uses our donations to provide valuable support programs, information, and awareness for rural Albertans living with MS.

Another successful and amazing Golf Classic day.
The 2018 event held on Thursday, August 9th boasted our typical (lucky) sunny weather and a full slate of eager golfers. As has been for the past 11 years, proceeds from the tournament go to our charity of choice, the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society of Canada, Alberta & Northwest Territories Division. Donations are allocated to programs and education, information, advocacy, and awareness events in rural Alberta for both community members living with the disease and their healthcare professionals. The Federation Charity Golf Classic, co-hosted with our co-op partner Federation of Gas Co-ops, is a highly anticipated and widely supported annual golf event. Thanks to our participants and sponsors we added to our accumulative total over the past 12 years - bringing it over the $300,000 mark. Thank you to everyone for their hard work and support.
