It is with great pride and excitement that I remind you that the 29th Anniversary Craig Simpson Never Say Never Charity Golf Classic is just around the corner. It's amazing for me to think it has been 29 years since we began raising money in support of the Spinal Cord Injury Treatment Centre Society (SCITCS) who celebrate their 30th Anniversary this year.
This year's Never Say Never Night of Hope hosted by the River Cree Resort and Casino takes place on Tuesday August 8th, 2017. On Wednesday August 9th, the Belvedere Golf and Country Club will once again host our Golf Tournament with a 1:00 pm shotgun start.
With the generous support of so many friends and local businesses we have been able to raise an amazing $3.5 million over the years in support of SCITCS and the Craig Simpson & Friends Charity Fund. This has been one of the most entertaining and enjoyable tournaments in our province thanks to the many volunteers and sponsors who give of their time and energy.
I am very proud to announce this year that our goal of establishing a Chair at the University of Alberta for Spinal Cord Injury research will be fulfilled this summer. Thanks to your support and donations, we are able to fill the position at the U of A with a highly qualified doctor to take on the role of Chair for spinal cord injury research. More information regarding the new Chair will be coming. We also continue to be a major supporter for the continuing efforts of SCITCS and their programs. Our donations are vital to helping people with spinal cord injuries in our community.
Thank you for considering joining our team through sponsorship. Sponsorship opportunities are filling up quickly so please don’t hesitate to contact us to ensure your spot at the tournament. We have been sold out in each of the last 28 years.
Thank you for your consideration and we hope you will be a part of our celebration.
