TC employees happy to be involved with WCSG
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.
