A Message to Our Donors
Here at the Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre, we see miracles happen every day. When a young person walks through the doors of AARC, they are often desperate, defeated, and completely hopeless. Lives have been destroyed and families have been torn apart. But at AARC, we know what that’s like. Many of us have been in the grips of addiction ourselves, and have overcome the ravages that it caused.
We believe in this program, because we’ve seen it work – over and over again. We believe in all the individuals who come into this program, because we know that deep down within them lies the courage to change. We believe in the families that stand behind those individuals, because they too have repeatedly shown strength and bravery while overcoming numerous difficulties. But most of all, we believe in miracles, because we know where we’d be without the love and support of AARC and its entire staff.
There is a solution for adolescent addiction. With the support of sponsors, donors and friends of AARC, we are able to bring hope back to these young and shattered lives.
Thank you for helping us to make miracles happen!
In 2014, AARC was grateful to be the recipient chosen for the proceeds of the Lindsay Rachel Giacomelli Memorial Golf Tournament. Thank you to Gerry and Leslie Giacomelli who were gracious hosts of the tournament and we thank them for their ongoing generous contribution to the Calgary Community. Thank you to all the golfers, sponsors, volunteers and tournament organizers who generously contributed towards this event.
The Lindsay Rachel Giacomelli Memorial Fund was established in Lindsay’s name as a memorial to her short life (June 18, 1984 to March 18, 2005). The goal of the fund is to keep Lindsay’s name and presence alive and to reflect her generous and caring spirit.
