CANUCKS READY FOR FUNDRAISER FOR
THE FLOOD-AFFECTED MORLEY FOOD BANK
For Immediate Release
Thursday, January 23 2014
The Calgary Canucks are excited for this Saturdayâ??s â??Rotary Night in Calgaryâ??, a fundraiser organized by the Rotary Club of Calgary Crowchild Urban Spirits and taking place at the Calgary Canucks game against the Camrose Kodiaks. The Rotary Club is hoping to raise over $2 000 for the Morley Food Bank.
Over $1 000 worth of tickets have been sold and many Rotary Clubs in the region donated tickets to the Morley community. There will be a silent auction and draw for prizes that were donated for the event.
In the community of Morley, many residents were forced from their homes by the surge in water and could not return for weeks or months. The communityâ??s food bank was filled with people who did not have access to food. The food bank felt immense pressures on its infrastructure which exacerbated the existing need and highlighted the need for renewal. The Food Bank requires more than $ 125 000 to provide the services the community needs.
â??The Players, Coaches, Directors, Fans, Off Ice Officials, Parents, and Volunteers of the Calgary (non-profit) Canucks thank the Rotary Club of Calgary Crowchild Urban Spirits for the opportunity of working with your outstanding organization,â? says Canucks President Ken Bracko. â??Your direction and guidance in the projects of this nature is most welcome as a life learning experience for our group.â?
â??Our club is happy to have been involved in projects in Morley for the last two years,â? says Rotary Club President Diana Frost. â??We are excited to be partnering with the Canucks to support this organization that was instrumental in providing relief to Morley residents affected by the flood.â?
Tickets benefiting the event can be purchased for $10 from the Rotary Club of Calgary Crowchild with all proceeds going to the Morley Food Bank.
