About Our Auction
COVID-19 has played a big part in how we have hosted our tournament. With the success that we have had with the On Line Auction, will once again be on line. Thank you for checking us out and for your continued support. Below is some information in regards to the Foundation that we started and due to your continued support are able to support those that are Living with Multiple Sclerosis!
"The Quality of Life - Community Fund Account"
The funds raised are placed in The Community Fund Account at the Alberta/NWT MS Office in Edmonton. The fund is monitored by the MS Society Edmonton Office. This a Provincial Fund, the funds raised by all of you are now open to all individuals living with MS throughout the Province of Alberta. Your continued support now allows us to help more individuals that require assistance to stay in the family unit and improve their "QUALITY OF LIFE!"
About MS Driving Fore A Cure Golf Classic Tournament
In 1992, our wife and mother, Marg, was diagnosed with MS. As everyone does at the time they are given news that they do not expect, we cried, we got mad and then we decided that we were not going to allow this to bring us down.
We started to ride in the local bike tour for Multiple Sclerosis and over a 10 year period our family had raised in excess of $100,000 for MS research. As it was getting harder to get old bodies on a bike for 200 kms so we looked at different ways that we could raise money.
As our family enjoys playing golf, in 2004 we founded the “MS Driving Fore A Cure” Golf Classic Tournament. Over the past 17 years we have with the help of all of you, raised over $203,646.00 for those living with Multiple Sclerosis. The difference with this tournament is that the funds raised do not go to research, instead the funds go to families and individuals living with MS to enhance their quality of life. This tournament, thanks to your support, provides equipment, renovations that are needed to keep the family unit together.
Without the support of friends like you, we could not have been able to make the difference in the lives of those living with MS. For this we are forever grateful.
