The 2014 Alberta Summer Games received a $10,000 donation from Apple Creek Golf Course on Nov. 5 to help fund the event.
“We are a new business in the community and we want to promote local sports,” said Loretta Apthorp, tournament coordinator with Apple Creek Golf Course, which is located 1.5 kilometres north of Airdrie on Township Road 275.
“We are excited to be a sponsor and want to support youth and be a part of building young athletes’ future.”
Airdrie’s newest golf course opened on May 10 and held a number of tournaments to raise funds for the cause.
With less than eight months until Airdrie hosts approximately 3,200 athletes, coaches and officials for the 2014 Alberta Summer Games in July, organizers have been working on sponsorships to help ensure the success of the Games.
“I think it’s fantastic… it really shows Apple Creek’s commitment to Airdrie and our community and making an event like this successful,” said Keith Wilkinson, director of Friends Of The Games.
Wilkinson added that sponsorship packages are available at the Games office or they can be emailed. If you would like more information about sponsorship packages, call 403-875-8234.
In 2014, the communities of Banff and Canmore will be hosting the 2014 Alberta Winter Games February 6 to 9. The City of Airdrie’s 2014 Alberta Summer Games will be held July 24 to 27. For more information about the Alberta Summer Games. Visit www.2014airdriegames.ca
