Ambassador of the Month - August 2014

Neil Wylie - Saskatoon, SK

Over 130 Rotarians and ShelterBox supporters gathered in Saskatoon on June 10th at a fundraising dinner to hear guest speaker Ron Noseworthy describe his experiences as a ShelterBox SRT. The event was spearheaded by the five Rotary Clubs of Saskatoon and ShelterBox Ambassador Neil Wylie, who teamed up to hold the event which increased the profile of ShelterBox and raised over $25,000 for ShelterBox Canada!

The event was promoted early through posters, a mall display and some attention from the local CTV media outlet. A local Rotarian, Mr. Harold Empy, even hosted a birthday celebration which featured a ShelterBox display to collect donations in support of the occasion.   Free tickets were offered to those who purchased a box prior to the function. The Master of Ceremony, Mr. Jay Richards from CJWW radio station, volunteered to host the evening. Organizers included in the program a group of students from Bishop Roborecki Elementary School. These students have embraced ShelterBox as a special fundraising project and were formally recognized for their efforts by Ron Noseworthy.  The evening was highlighted by both a silent and live auction, which consisted of donations collected by local Rotarians and ShelterBox volunteers in support of the event.

Ron Noseworthy shared with those in attendance his direct experience providing disaster relief to families who lost everything. He was able to provide insight into the important role that Rotarians and ShelterBox supporters play in helping others around the world. By the end of the evening everyone had a greater understanding of how ShelterBox works in the field and the difference that every dollar donated makes to others in need.
