We believe that the best way to give back to our community is by investing in young people.
Charities we work with:
Calgary Flames Foundation
The Calgary Flames Foundation is the charitable arm of the Calgary Flames Hockey Club. The foundation is committed to supporting Education, Health and Medical Research, and Amateur and Grassroots sports and raises funds throughout the year for these key areas.
Funding initiatives include 50/50 draws at Flames Games, contests and special events such as The Flames Ambassadors celebrity poker tournament.
Fundraising proceeds are directed towards many charities in Southern Alberta. From families facing the terminal illness of a child to student athletes.
The vision of Mavericks Every Child a Reader (MECAR) program is to enrich our students’ lives with the gift of reading. They have a lifelong love of reading that enables them to be more independent in all aspects of home, school and community life. Reading for pleasure and knowledge opens doors to more opportunities for our students.
Every Child a Reader Program provides individualized reading instruction to students in grade one to grade six. We are in our 4th year of providing a reading program that is fully funded by the generosity of our sponsors, both corporate and individual.
