Thirty-degree heat, country music and bacon-wrapped corn. What better way to kick-off the Stampede season here in Calgary?
It was another successful event at the National Rooftop Patio on 8th Ave for SECURE’s annual Stampede STOMP. On Wednesday July 7th, we celebrated our customers in true SECURE fashion with an outdoor hoedown in support of KidSport Alberta. KidSport is a national not-for-profit organization that provides financial assistance for registration fees and equipment to kids aged 18 and under.
Each year the event gives us the chance to say thanks to our customers, while giving back to our community.
“We’re very grateful to our customers for the trust they’ve placed in us as their partner, and for their help in supporting a great community organization like Kidsport,” said Rene Amirault, President & CEO at SECURE Energy Services.
At the time of the cheque presentation, we raised $40,000 in three hours. With an hour left to go, our guests pulled together, bringing our total donation, including SECURE’s match to $70,000 for KidSport Alberta.
“We’ve been proud supporters of KidSport in the communities where our employees live and work. Our values align with KidSport’s mission, and it’s great to know that they’re helping kids get in the game through sport and play. Enriching our youth is important to SECURE and we look forward to our ongoing relationship with the organization,” said Amirault.
Thanks to everyone who came out to support KidSport and to celebrate the Calgary Stampede!
