Invitation from the National Team
“I am excited to invite you all to our first ever “Shoot for Gold” cocktail fundraiser at the Iron Goat Pub & Grill on November 14th from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm.
As many of you are aware, biathlon is a fantastic, but underfunded sport in Canada. Unfortunately, our funding situation is at a point where all IBU and World Cup athletes will have to pay significant portions of tour costs in order to represent Canada on the World stage. This year, World Cup team members will have to contribute an unprecedented $120,000 towards their competitive seasons. With eight athletes competing on the tour, each member will have to pay $15,000.
There is good news! With your help, we can help reduce those costs to a much more attainable number. That is why we would like to invite you to come join us for an evening of socializing with Canada’s Senior National Biathlon Team. The evening will feature drinks, a silent auction, presentations from past and present Olympians, and quality time with all of the Senior National Team members. If you would like to join us, you can buy tickets by following this link. If you can’t make it and would like to contribute, you can also donate here. There will be donation matching for the next $20 000 leading up to the event so each donated dollar will go further! Every bit helps and donations over $25 are eligible for a tax receipt. We are all looking forward to seeing you there! Please feel free to forward this email to anyone that you think might be interested in attending the event!
