The four Rotary Clubs of Grande Prairie are proud to work collaboratively on lottery projects to raise money for a variety of non-profit and charitable organizations. Rotary is a service club with the guiding principles of service, fellowship, diversity, integrity, and leadership. We are proud to have raised over 5.6 million for 60+ non-profit groups in the 23 year history of the lottery.
Lottery proceeds will be used to utilize the Discover Bezanson website. The Bezanson Agricultural Society is dedicated to enriching the community through the encouragement of community spirit and well-being by providing facilities and recreational, educational and community opportunities to the area by catering to local and regional organizations, hosting events, developing projects, providing rental facilities to a variety of user groups and encouraging social and family interactions. Discover Bezanson is a community website that promotes community programs and assists groups with registration services plus much more.
Lottery proceeds will be used to purchase necessary craft and sports equipment needed to operate the camp as well as help to cover the cost of off-site summer camp activities such as bussing costs, swimming, dinosaur museum, and Kleskun Hills Park. This will impact more than 350 youth between the ages of 4 – 17 as well as mentally challenged adults. Camp Tamarack welcomes campers of all abilities and helps children learn to accept other and their special needs while building up their own self esteem.
Lottery proceeds will help with the care and feed for the PARDS herd. Proceeds will also allow for continued training of instructors to review the latest innovations and methods to ensure clients receive the best possible outcomes from their lessons. This will impact over 350 clients ages 3 and up with physical, cognitive, behavioural, and/or emotional challenges as well as those with no clinical diagnosis but who are experiencing challenge in their lives. These programs impact not only the rider but their families, caregivers, and the community as a whole by supporting the riders to increase their independence, self-confidence, community presence and involvement.
Lottery proceeds will help with band equipment costs and support travel costs to participate in the 2024 World Pipe Band Championships. The Pipes and Drums band brings arts & culture to the Peace Country Area. While performing at a variety of public and private events band members also help to teach new musicians of all ages.
Proceeds support the operational costs of the Seniors Outreach and Meals on Wheels office. A one stop shop for seniors and their family, friends, caregivers, neighbors and anyone playing a role in a senior’s life. When a senior is in “crisis” they problem solve to come up with a solution and assist seniors in obtaining available services, communicate with organizations serving seniors, and identify gaps in services to assist them in their needs.
Proceeds will be used towards updating dancer costumes. Most of the costumes and/or pieces come from the Ukraine to ensure quality and authentic pieces. The Society’s costume collection has been built up over the years but Costumes have been reused, repurposed and altered and are in desperate need of updating. The Troyanda Society aims to be affordable and inclusive to all and dancers attends many community events.
Proceeds will support Grande Prairie Gymnastics and Cheerleading in many different areas with a focus being on coach development, equipment maintenance/replacement and supporting the community in keeping our competitive programs affordable for our families. Gymnastics remains one of the best activities for the overall development of agility, balance, coordination, strength, and flexibility and now more than ever, we need to keep our families and athletes engaged as we work to rebuild our programs as we move away from the challenges of 2020/2021. It is the support and dedication of the Lotteries that truly enable us to make gymnastics a reality for so many in the community.
Proceeds will be used towards support of various community programs and projects. Some of the projects we are involved in include the Salvation Army Food Bank Drive, Dignity Drive, Friendship Centre, Excellence in Education awards, Highway to Mexico and many more! The Swan City Rotary Club is a volunteer service club dedicated to providing service to others, promoting integrity, and advancing world understanding, goodwill and peace through fellowship of business, professional and community leaders.
