Club’s largest community donation to date!

The Rotary Club of Red Deer Urban Spirits is thrilled to share that they have made a $10,000 donation to the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre (CACAC). The funds were raised through a successful application to the Rotary Foundation District 5360 Grant program and the 2019 Central Alberta Wing Fest that was held at Red Deer Titans Rugby Park on September 7.

“We are incredibly proud and excited to present this donation to the CACAC,” says Reg Warkentin, President, Rotary Club of Red Deer Urban Spirits. “The work being done by the CACAC is savings the lives of kids across Central Alberta. We’re so pleased to support their work to give vulnerable youth a second chance through our club’s largest donation yet.”
“Community groups like the Rotary Club of Red Deer Urban Spirits are so crucial in our community; their commitment and involvement allows organizations, like us, to do what we do,” shared Mark Jones, CEO, Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre.
 
“We have had the good fortune in having the Urban Spirits club as an avid supporter and advocate for our Centre, and we are honored to receive this generous donation. This contribution lets us continue to support the children of our community affected by child abuse, providing them and their families with the guidance and direction they so richly deserve. “To everyone at the Rotary Club of Red Deer Urban Spirits who planned and volunteered at the event, along with all who participated and joined in Central Alberta Wing Fest – we thank you!”
