Philanthropy in Action: Thank you to the Larry Carey Charity Golf Classic!

Posted on Sep 18, 2017 4:35:07 PM

For 25 years the Larry Carey Charity Golf Classic has been raising money for local charities. This year they raised $35,000 in support of Habitat for Humanity!

Hosted by Carey Management and in honour of the late Larry Carey, founder of Wallace and Carey, this annual golf tournament brings together members of the Calgary community for a fun day of golf, food and drinks, all in the name of raising money for charity!

Think 130 golfers, over 60 dedicated volunteers, and (despite our record hot summer every other day), a freezing cold rainy morning topped with nostalgia and enthusiasm for a great cause.

This year for their 26th annual event they went above and beyond their fundraising goal of $25 000 (they raised $35 000) and had a great time doing it! Each hole had a unique 70’s theme (think Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Disco) and tons of food and prizes.

As 2016 draws to a close, we reflect on what our community’s support has accomplished for families this year at Habitat for Humanity.

This year we completed 18 homes and began construction on 19 new homes in Southern Alberta. This means 63 children are enjoying this holiday season in a home they can call their own.

Women Build is a huge fundraiser and it takes a the entire city to make it a reality. The organizations below contributed in different ways - some cooked food, some donated money, some fundraised like crazy - but they all had to come together for the event to work. This is our final shoutout to everyone and every company who made Women Build such a great success!

Building homes costs money. A single home will cost us around $250,000, once you've included the cost of land, permits, materials and skilled labour. Fortunately, we have community partners who support our builds and lower our costs by donating their building materials to us.

When you're building a house, every little detail matters. Small holes can let in wind and rain, going unnoticed at first but potentially causing huge issues in ten or twenty years. These issues can include strange odours, higher heating bills, damaged foundations and more.

Homes aren't cheap to build. Even our homes, built in part by volunteers, cost around $250,000 per door once you've added everything up. Thankfully, there are companies in the communities we build in that see the lives they can change and offer us their support. Fluor Canada is one of these companies.
