The Lloydminster Region Health Foundation, Lloydminster Jr. A Bobcats and Acklands-Grainger are proud to announce the return of a partnership that is sure to score big points for enhanced health care in our community.
The 4th annual Acklands-Grainger Bobcat’s Point Man program returns for the 2011-2012 season, with point man Kyle Harris bringing the program to life. For every point Harris accumulates, Acklands-Grainger will donate $25 to the Health Foundation. During playoffs, the ante is upped, and Acklands-Grainger will donate $50 to the Health Foundation. Sean Coomber, Manager of Acklands-Grainger’s Lloydminster Branch, says, “We are excited to be part of the Point Man Program again this year. We’ve seen momentum build over the past three years, and I think the 2011-2012 season will be our best yet! Acklands-Grainger believes in supporting health care in our community, so this program is a perfect match”.
The Lloydminster Bobcats Business Manager Malcolm Radke added, “Kyle Harris was our leading scorer last season with 51 points, so he should be an excellent fit for this initiative. Kyle also represents himself very well in the community. I am confident that he will be a great ambassador for this program. We are excited to help the Lloydminster Region Health Foundation and we are looking forward to another successful year for this initiative.”
Proceeds from the Acklands-Grainger Bobcat’s Point Man will be directed toward local health care priority projects. Executive Director Georgina Altman says “The commitment Acklands-Grainger has shown to enhancing health care in our community is inspiring. We know that the success of this program will bring us one step closer to bringing better health care to our city. It’s truly something to celebrate!”
The Lloydminster Region Health Foundation is in its 29th year of providing essential funding to enhance healthcare in our community. Since inception, the Health Foundation has invested over $13.7 million dollars, (over $8.3 million in the last 5 years alone) into the community.
