The Federation of Alberta Gas Co-ops Ltd. and Alberta Federation of Rural Electrification Associations (AFREA) are announcing the cancellation of the 14th Annual Federation MS Charity Golf Classic. Pandemic restrictions on golf courses mean we simply cannot hold the event this year, but we are excited to be back in 2021!
None of the decisions in our province or in our organizations have been made lightly; we choose to err on the side of caution even though golf courses may be open. With facilities and clubhouses still closed, the logistics for such an event would have been difficult to manage. Changes made are moment to moment, so it is unpredictable what restrictions would ease in the near future.
All proceeds from the Classic are donated to the MS Society of Canada, Alberta & Northwest Territories Division. This would have been our fourteenth Classic and to date we have raised over $300,000. The MS Society continues to do good work for those in Alberta living with Multiple Sclerosis – and have used the funds from this Golf Classic to implement many beneficial rural programs to help those who may live in our REA and Gas Co-op areas.
We won’t let a pandemic stop our momentum! We still want to help the MS Society in our rural communities, and so together we invite you or your company to consider what you may have spent on sponsorship or registration for the Classic and instead donate that this year to our MS Team! We have worked with the MS Society to set up a special page to collect your donations at http://mssoc.convio.net/goto/14thannualFederationCharityGolfClassic. These funds will continue to be used for the rural programs that you have helped make a reality. Sponsors/donators over $1,000 will be recognized on our website and social media platforms.
The MS Society still needs to continue their work despite the current situation, and we appreciate your continued support to help make that happen. Thank you to everyone for their past and continued support. We look forward to 2021 and getting together on the course for the 15th Charity Golf Classic!
Thank You to our Many Supporters!
