BOW VALLEY GRIZZLIES
We would like to thank Bow River Dental Centre and Ducks on the Roof for being a corporate sponsor for the Bow Valley Grizzlies.
Ducks on the Roof, a sports bar and grill, came on board in the latter part of 2012 as a sponsor for the Adult Male Team. They are located at 205 3rd Avenue, Cochrane, AB, T4C
They are the home of the Grizzlies Social Calender and are well known for
great wings, steak sandwiches and the best pizza in town.

The support of both of the Grizzlies corporate sponsors is most welcomed.
- Shell Canada at Jumping Pound for supplying the poles free of charge.
- Fortis Alberta for supplying the use of auger and crane for the installation.
- International Crane and Hoist for moving the posts from Shell to Mitford School using their truck.
- Tyler Lyster for operating the Crane and Auger.
And all the Mums and Dads and Grizzly Team members that came out and helped.
A big thank you to Go Girls. On Saturday 2nd June 2012, two of our coaches introduced rugby to a group of 30+ girls aged between 10-14. They kindly donated $100 to the Club as a thank you for contributing to this worthwhile cause.
CLUB FUND RAISING OPPORTUNITIES
As a non-profit Club we need to fund raise during the year so that we can supply up to date equipment and kit. Although we are very fortunate to be able to partake in a casino every 3 years, running a Club can be very costly. Therefore, we now have a fund-raising team in Michelle Sprighton, Seanna Hutchinson and Julie Handrahan. Their task is to set up fund raising initiatives for the Club to undertake during the year. So far in 2013, there will be a bottle drive in January and our successful hanging basket fund-raiser in 2012 will be repeated in Spring along. If you would like to be a part of this team, or have any suggestions for fundraising please do not hesitate to contact any of the team or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alberta has adopted the charitable gaming model for casinos. These gaming activities present excellent fundraising opportunities for charitable and non-profit organizations which generally include sport organizations and clubs, to raise funds for their worthy projects and services.
As we are a non-profit group, we are privileged to be eligible for a charitable gaming licence, which means we are able to hold two day events in a casino facility. From this we gain valuable funds, which help us to run the rugby program in Cochrane, and provide a sport for children and adults in the Town and further afield.
Our next scheduled casino dates are tentatively scheduled for the Jan/Feb/Mar 2015.
MOTHERS' DAY FUNDRAISER
Julie Handrahan organised a Mothers Day Fundraiser in the form of hanging baskets at $10 each, this raised $740 for the Club. A big thank you to Jane Boyce of Stone Creek Gardens in Bragg Creek for the fabulous flowers. We will be repeating this fundraiser again in 2013 with the kind assistance of Julie and Jane again. If you would like to reserve some baskets please contact us.
