Darts Alberta Launches New Fundraising Initiative

As the Board reported at the 2017 AGM, a lot of work has been put into finding a fundraising program with less restrictions than AGLC raffles and casino proceeds to help subsidize the adult provincial travel expenses.

Darts Alberta is pleased to announce that we have partnered with a national organization that has long standing success with Gift Card Fundraising Programs. There are no products to sell, so you don’t have to ask family and friends to buy overpriced products that they wouldn’t normally buy.

Proceeds from this new fundraising initiative will go toward subsidizing hotel and gas expenses for out of town participants traveling to Edmonton for the 2018 Adult Provincials. Although the Edmonton area members may not see the immediate benefit, these funds can be used for other programs and initiatives where raffle and casino proceeds cannot be used, if we all work together to make this program a success. The earning potential is limitless—sports groups have raised as much as almost $25,000.

There are over 130 Alberta retailer groups with gift cards available ranging from $5 to $1,000. Here is a small sample of everyday places you, your family, friends and co-workers probably already shop:

Esso, Shell, Petro Canada, Walmart, Staples, Amazon.ca, Marks Work Warehouse, Best Buy, Chapters/Indigo Books, Cineplex, Sobey’s, Safeway, SuperStore, Shoppers Drug Mart, Canadian Tire, Home Depot, A & W, Tim Horton’s, Boston Pizza, Cabela’s, Bass Pro Shop, Golf Town and many more!

Darts Alberta will earn anywhere from 1.5% to 10% on all gift card purchases. The program offers lower denominations than most gift card fundraising programs (e.g. gas gift cards as low as $25 and grocery and movie gift cards as low as $10).

With the Christmas season fast approaching, there are so many ways that individuals can utilize this program:

  • Customer appreciation
  • Employee appreciation
  • Personal use for everyday items like gas, coffee and groceries
  • Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers for family and friends
  • Gift cards for Christmas Shoots or other league events
  • And so much more!

It is likely that we will schedule orders on a regular basis, but with Christmas not far away, we will be placing the first order of gift cards no later than December 1, 2017 so that they can be delivered to purchasers before Christmas.

2017 Chris Hatter Memorial has been Cancelled!

It is with great disappointment that we must notify everyone that the 2017 Chris Hatter Memorial tournament has been cancelled. This was due to the venue being sold. The organizers have tried to find a suitable replacement venue but have had no luck. The organizers are hoping to secure a venue for 2018 and will keep us updated.
