TC em­ploy­ees happy to be in­volved with WCSG

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - OPINION -

The ef­forts to ob­tain cor­po­rate sup­port have been suc­cess­ful. The to­tal value of spon­sor­ship, whether in cash or in-kind do­na­tions, has reached the $1 mil­lion mark.

Ac­cord­ing to Cas­sidy the com­mu­nity re­ally stepped up in pro­vid­ing in-kind do­na­tions, for ex­am­ple to use equip­ment dur­ing the 10-day pe­riod of the Sum­mer Games.

“We were look­ing at rent­ing ve­hi­cles,” he said. “That was go­ing to be like $9,000 to go to Regina air­port and pick peo­ple up. The lo­cal deal­er­ships just stepped up and basically all pooled in to­gether, and then that cost is elim­i­nated off the bud­get. So it’s great, we made it.”

There is still a need for more vol­un­teers to as­sist with a va­ri­ety of tasks dur­ing the Sum­mer Games. Over 1,700 ath­letes, coaches, of­fi­cials and mis­sion staff from Al­berta, Man­i­toba, North­west Ter­ri­to­ries, Nu­navut, Saskatchew­an, and Yukon will at­tend the 2019 Western Canada Sum­mer Games from Aug. 9-18.
