Saint City Rotary Golf Tournament
Thursday, August 21, 2014
Sandpiper Golf and Country Club, Saint Albert.
Breakfast: 6:30AM, Shotgun start: 8:00AM

For 10 years now, Saint City Rotary Club has generously supported CAMTA through this event. Here's how YOU can get involved:
- Play golf - sign up as an individual or make up a foursome with friends, family or co-workers - $150 per golfer.
- Volunteer to help at the tournament.
- Sponsor the event - become the title sponsor for the tournament, make a cash donation, donate specialty hole prizes, donate tournament team prizes, donate raffle draw prizes, or donate items for the 144 golfer information packages.
Volunteering above and beyond...
When Jenilly Joseph was finishing up her Education degree at the University of Alberta earlier this year, she organized a Fundraising Fiesta for CAMTA - in her "spare" time! With the help of fellow St. John's Institute Residence Association board members, she put together a party complete with a silent auction, raffles, salsa dancing instruction, delicious food and a great DJ! The group raised over $1000 and donated it all to CAMTA. Why would a busy young student, who hasn't ever volunteered for a CAMTA mission, want to organize a fundraiser for us?
"I had an extremely positive experience volunteering in Ecuador during the summer of 2012", she says,"and I shared this experience with Dr. David Begg. That's when he told me about CAMTA. I researched what CAMTA was all about and I fell in love! I was then inspired to create and host a Latin themed gala to raise funds for such an admirable and reputable charitable organization."
Jenilly is "extremely excited" to start teaching her first Grade 2 class this September. She will also be teaching Grade 7 and 9 dance. "As an Educator I want to inspire my students to become more aware of global issues and be able to gain experience making a positive difference in the world. I plan to do this by organizing leadership and humanitarian extra-curricular clubs for my students."
We hope that Jenilly will one year have the opportunity to come to Ecuador with CAMTA to see first hand how donations like hers are used to help those less fortunate. Right now, the mission dates conflict with February report card season! "For now, I will continue to do whatever I can from home to support local organizations such as CAMTA that make powerful and life saving differences for our world."
