Calgary Association of Skateboarding Enthusiasts (CASE) welcomes generous donation from Ivory Dental on 130th – in the city’s southeast.
“It’s awesome,” says Matt Keay, a board member with CASE, “our group is working through ways to develop programming and bring additional value to the skateboarding community in Calgary. This seed money will help us with a fundraiser and online skateboard contest we have planned.”
Ivory Dental on 130th is celebrating their one year anniversary this fall and this is a great way to increase presence and let community members know they are accepting new patients.
“We are here to provide Calgarians with a comfortable dental experience and ensure you are receiving honest care,” says Dr. Garett Herget, “we’ll treat you like a member of our family.”
Calgary Association of Skateboarding Enthusiasts is using the funds to ship some skateboarding supplies from China to assist with their fundraising efforts, as well as provide prize money for a local skateboard contest, facilitated entirely online.
“We could have picked any sport to support – with over 35,000 skateboarders in Calgary we might see someone from Calgary on the podium at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo,” says Dr. Herget, “oral health is important, but also youth and parents living a healthy, active lifestyle.”
