The 2013 - 9th Annual Charity Golf Classic in support of the Lindsay Rachel Giacomelli Memorial Fund will be held on Friday June 14, 2013 at The Elbow Springs Golf Club in Calgary, Alberta.

Thanks to your generous support last year we raised over $42,000 at the event. This allowed us to make $18,500 in charitable donations, which consisted of $7,500 from our Platinum Sponsors, and $11,000 from Lindsay's Fund. $35,721 was deposited in to the fund which now stands at approximately $273,000.

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 (www.lindsaygiacomelli.com).

The fund will provide charitable donations to Calgary area causes forever, all in Lindsay's name. This year's primary donation will be made to The Calgary Health Trust for some specific equipment for the Foothills Intensive Care Unit.

1.Total Care Sport bed from Hill-Rom ($42,000). This equipment provides advanced air flow surface helps prevent occurrence of bed sores, assists with turning & positioning the patient (better for patient, less lifting for nurses), assists with vibration & percussion (part of chest physio treatment required for lung disease).
2. Codman monitor ($8300). This equipment benefits brain injury patients. It monitors the intra-cranial pressure on patients who have experienced a brain injury (intra-cranial pressure is a measurement of the severity of the injury; the values obtained help direct the treatment plan for patients)
