The Calgary Fencing Club’s 4th Annual Fence-a-Thon charity fundraiser is being held on October 17, 2015 at the Vecova Recreation Centre. On behalf of The Calgary Fencing Club Board of Directors, its coaches, fencers and their families, we cordially invite the Montgomery Community Association & Members to join us. As the only charity fundraiser organized and sponsored by a fencing club in Calgary, it is a way for our fencers, their families, friends and supporters to give back to the community, and to a recognized local charity, through the excitement and fun of an annual fencing tournament.
This year, we are fundraising for the Vecova Centre for Disability Services and Research (www.vecova.ca). For 45 years, Vecova’s mission has been to build the capacity of people with disabilities and to enrich communities through leadership, innovation, and collaboration. Each year, Vecova helps approximately 180 people with disabilities and their families. Vecova’s three key areas focus on services, research, and enterprise for people with disabilities.
The Fence-a-Thon will be an all-day tournament, with fencers coming from all over Alberta. This is a family event, so we’d love to see your community members and their families join us. There will be free lessons for both kids and adults who may want to try a little fencing (after a short lesson on safety and basic technique). Local dignitaries and the media have been invited and the event will be promoted by both the Alberta Fencing Association and the Canadian Fencing Federation.
We would like to ask if you could please post the attached 2015 Fence-a-Thon poster in your community newsletter and community centre event boards, and share our invitation with your community members. Please let us know if you have any questions.
On behalf of the Vecova Centre and the Calgary Fencing Club, I would like to thank you for your kind support of Calgary Fencing Club’s 2015 Fence-a-Thon charity fundraiser. We look forward to seeing you on October 17th at the Vecova Recreation Centre.
