Calgary Homebuilder Races for Families

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - June 29, 2005) - For the entire 10 days of the Calgary Stampede, the Albi Home's Chuckwagon racing team lead by driver, Shane Nolin, will be racing for families and will donate $35,000 at the completion of the Rangeland Derby Races to the United Way.

100% of this donation will be designated from the United Way to Discovery House, a non-profit organization that focuses on the prevention of family violence in Calgary and surrounding areas. In its 25th year of operation, Discovery House is a second stage shelter that offers protective and supportive housing for women with children who have left a family of violence.

"This is a perfect fit for us since we are both in the shelter business and have similar goals of supporting healthy families. It is also near and dear to our hearts as Albi Homes was a strong supporter of raising money to build the new Discovery House location," says Debra Mauro, Senior Vice President of Albi Homes.

This is Albi Home's first year in the Rangeland Derby races and the entire team is looking forward to cheering on Shane's drive for families every night at the Stampede grounds. A special cheque presentation to Discovery House will be made on the last night of the races on July 17.

And they're off.......
