Airdire Lioness

Soap for Hope

It was a pleasure to be able to get together again in person for our most recent meeting. The Woods restaurant at Woodside Golf Course hosted the 100 men and came equipped with stringent guidelines to make sure everyone was kept safe and within government and health guidelines.

The night began with an update from our previous recipient - Bethany Care Foundation. We were able to hear updates on their outdoor renovations - an attempt to help their seniors safely reconnect with loved ones who haven't been able to visit as much because of COVID. Bethany also proudly shared that their strict protocols have meant that there hasn't been a single COVID death in their facility.

The first of the presenting charities was Kiwanis. Kiwanis is heavily involved in the community but are particularly proud of their work they do at Christmas for children in need. Kiwanis would be able to expand and solidify their programming with a successful awarding of funds.

Next, the Airdrie Lioness club presented. The Lioness are another group that helps a wide variety of groups in Airdrie and is particularly proud of their Christmas hamper program that helps families in need. Lioness shared a touching story about a child that they met because of their Christmas hamper program - which would be the focus of any awarded funds.

Finally, Soap for Hope presented. Soap for Hope provides products that deliver basic hygiene necessities for those in need - things that most of us take for granted. Soap for Hope has also been able to procure charity status that is independent from their parent organization - meaning that they can better control where their donations are directed and respond to local need more easily.

All three provided insight into the incredible work they do and the populations that they serve.

Before votes were tallied, a couple of live auctions were held. Jason Cosgrove donated a $500 gift card for his plumbing and heating services, with the winning bid coming in at $750! Next a gift certificates for Tires on the Run gift card was auctioned with an additional $400 coming in. This meant that a total of $1150 was available to be split between the two unsuccessful charities. Everyone would walk away with something this meeting!

After a tally of the votes, Airdrie Lioness Club was able to walk away with a phenomenal total of $11,500! With $575 for the other two charities, a total of $12,650 donated!

A TON of door prizes were given away again. A massive 'thank you' to all of the members who generously donate these wonderful prizes. In particular, thanks to Jason Cosgrove, Cam Abbott, Jam's, Davis Chevrolet, Township 27, Airdrie Truck and Accessories, Airdrie Windshield & Glass, David Bowman Painting, Old Town pizza, Alexander's Steakhouse, Ricky's Restaurant, and Cobb's Bakery.
