An Exciting Partnership (United Way of Fort McMurray):
The Quality Hotel Fort McMurray has chosen the United Way of Fort McMurray as their Charity of Choice as the recipient of the proceeds that are raised from our annual Friends in Need Campaign. This campaign allocates $10.00 for every room booked at the Quality Hotel over the Christmas holidays to their charity of choice and was extremely successful.
The United Way of Fort McMurray is a locally run charity that provides funding to more than 60 programs in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. This is accomplished by running community fundraising drives and investing these funds into initiatives that support a diverse community impact strategy, a strategy that looks to change the root causes of social issues.
In addition to supporting the United Way of Fort McMurray, the Quality also supports other fundraising initiatives including:
Bras for the Cause which is in partnership with Canadian Jeweler Association with a minimum $5 donation patrons are eligible to win a diamond valued at $800. The evening involves a night with a 50/50 draw and proceeds from drink specials donated to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
We host a fundraising event which includes a silent auction, adoption and Christmas kennel campaign. 50/50 draw as well as all proceeds from the door being donated to our local SPCA.
Kick off Movember with a pajama party fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society to help create awareness for prostate cancer; as well we host other benefits throughout the year to assist with local charities and fundraising events.
