As a thank you to past and future donors who have, and will continue to, support the ABMF's vision and mission in the coming years, we have implemented a new Donor Recognition Program! Details are below.
The casino fundraiser, which happens every 2 years, is the largest source of funding for the scholarships that the ABMF provides to its students each year. Although it is uncertain whether our next casino fundraiser, currently scheduled for Spring 2021, will be able to go ahead as scheduled, the ABMF is committed to fulfilling its mission of providing tuition support for local music students at the post-secondary level, and will be continuing to provide scholarships during the COVID-19 pandemic and in the subsequent years when we are recovering from this challenging time.
That being said, we are excited to see the AGLC's announcement that gaming facilities may reopen in Alberta this month, including charitable casinos and Host First Nation casinos!
Charities will not be expected to attend charitable casino events as soon as gaming venues reopen. Table games will reopen at a later date. Once table games resume, so will charitable casino events. AGLC will confirm charity attendance in advance of their scheduled event dates.
Once charitable casino events resume, temporary changes will take effect to reduce the total number of volunteers required for an event.
Thanks to everyone who attended the Annual Fall Dinner over the weekend, and to the Edmonton Journal for covering the event! Read more here.
