Flames Foundation 2011-12 Community Report

Dear Flames Foundation for Life Supporters,

The Calgary Flames are proud to call this city home, to play in the C of Red, to have the best fans in the National Hockey League. We are also proud to be a part of this tremendous community and the commitments you have helped us make. On behalf of our entire organization we want to thank you for making this possible through the charitable arm of our hockey club; the Flames Foundation for Life.

Over 30 years ago Calgary welcomed the Flames as their NHL team. Over this time and since the beginning, the Flames ownership group ensured giving back and improving the lives of Southern Albertans remained among the highest of priorities.

The 2011-12 hockey season was accompanied with on-ice accomplishments that resonated into many Calgary Flames players’ milestones. The Flames Foundation for Life also experienced milestones in its fundraising efforts. The Flames Ambassador’s Celebrity Poker Tournament raised a record breaking $500,000 for the Flames Foundation for Life. The Calgary Flames Better Halves created and sold a cookbook with Flames families’ recipes during the holiday season. While the Flames Celebrity Charity Golf Classic expanded to two golf courses for the first time in September 2011.

The growth and milestones the Flames Foundation for Life experienced this season is a direct result of your contributions. Whether you purchase raffle tickets at our games, sponsor our fundraisers, are a donor, a volunteer or a participant—we thank you. We do believe that every game matters, we believe every dollar makes a difference and we believe every person makes an impact.

Please accept our heartfelt gratitude for the contributions you have helped us make to the community through your support of the Flames Foundation for Life. Take the time to review our 2011-12 annual report for proof the impact every person can help to make.

Board of Directors 2011/2012

Sincerely,

Ken M. King

President and CEO

SUPPORT THE FOUNDATION
To Canadians, hockey has always been more than a game. It shapes our national identity and touches our lives and communities on and off the ice. Hockey is about coming together for a common goal; help us make a winning contribution.
