Airdrie and District Victims Assistance Society (ADVAS) is a non-profit, volunteer based organization that provides 24 hour crisis response and support to victims of crime and/or tragedy through the RCMP. Supported and operated within the Airdrie RCMP Detachment, ADVAS assists individuals within the Airdrie and Beiseker Detachments and surrounding districts.
September 12th, the Airdrie Oilmen Association presented Airdrie Victim Services with a generous donation of $4,000.00
Each year, the AOA organizes and puts on multiple events where funds are raised. We would like to thank AOA and all the volunteers that make these events successful.
Meridian Farms offered a yearling to be sold at the Alberta Standardbred Horse Association Yearling Sale, with proceeds divided between five different organizations. Throughout the year, these five organizations are invited to the race track, and given matching t-shirts designed to reflect that group. The groups are invited to bring banners and such to showcase the organization as a way to expose racing fans and the public to information regarding the specific cause. Groups are then invited to attend the yearling sale to further expose the organizations to the public and then the yearling is auctioned off to the highest bidder and proceeds are divided.
On Sunday September 10th, yearling June Morning was auctioned off and ADVAS was soon presented with $3,200.00.
Thank you to Meridian Farms and the Alberta Standardbred Horse Association for your continued support!
