We couldn’t have asked for better weather when 144 golfers teed off for the 9th Annual Scott Smed Invitational on September 14, 2009 at Cottonwood Golf & Country Club. Teams dressed in baby blue, as a tribute to our son Scott, and headed out for the day to help raise money for three very worthwhile
causes: Pregnancy and Infant Loss Program through Alberta Health Services, for two babies`orphanages in Uganda and Women and Children in Crisis programs through United Way of Calgary and Area.
What a day it was! Despite this past year being so difficult for so many, we raised nearly $100,000 for these very worthwhile organizations. What a difference this money will make to those in need, both here in our community and thousands of miles away in an Ugandan village.
To each of the people who swung a club, donated a prize, joined us for dinner or volunteered their time, “thank you”. It doesn’t seem like enough but once again, it is all we can truly say to acknowledge this remarkable opportunity we’ve been given to honour Scott and do something special in our community.
