ARTCF Charity Golf Classic
September 16, 2022
by Frank Bruseker, President, Alberta Retired Teachers Charitable Foundation
After two years of postponements and a long time keeping our distance from each other, the Alberta Retired Teachers Charitable Foundation (ARTCF) golf tournament was finally able to take place earlier this summer, on June 16. We could not have asked for better weather or a better turnout. Thank you to all who participated — our generous sponsors, the staff of the Ponoka Golf Club, and all the ARTA volunteers — your time, energy, and hard work ensured the day ran smoothly.
Between the entry fees, contributions from our sponsors, and donations both on and off the course, the Foundation raised over $25,000 to help Alberta’s seniors. This money will go toward various initiatives throughout the province that help seniors secure access to health-care resources, adequate housing, and English as a second language education. These initiatives not only serve
today’s seniors but lay a foundation of support for generations of seniors to come.
ARTCF’s next charity golf tournament is still a long way off, but all ARTA members are encouraged to look for the announcement and sign up or volunteer if you are able; there is no better way to spend a summer afternoon, and it’s for an incredible cause. In the meantime, if you’re interested in helping ARTCF achieve its vision, please visit arta.net/artcf to read more about our organization and consider donating. Every little bit makes a difference and contributes to the well-being of seniors in our province.
