The third annual Kindness Open held at the spectacular Silvertip Resort, took place on September 6.
This year’s tournament was nearly sold out with more than 110 golfers taking to the links for a day of giving, sunny weather and great company.
With your support, we raised over $90,000!
All proceeds help the DI deliver much needed support for our community’s most vulnerable. In 2018, we have housed nearly 90 chronic, or long-term, shelter stayers, including two of Calgary’s most chronically homeless. As the DI continues to evolve, we are confident that we can help eliminate experiences of chronic homelessness in Calgary.

One of the highlights of the day was when DI “Volunteer of the Year” opened up to the room and shared his story. Once a client at the DI, he told us why it was the best place for him to give back… at 83 years old!
“I put in a lot of hours at the DI because I like to help people. Everyone is equal and deserves dignity and respect.”
We couldn’t have pulled off the day’s events without the generosity of our incredible sponsors including Silvertip Resort, ConocoPhillips, Flynn Canada, Colan Kee, Systemic Architects, Chandos, DLA Piper, TD Commercial, McLean & Partners, Toole Peet Insurance, Iron Horse Canada, Keyera, BDO, W.E. Greer, Lane Quinn, and Sunlife Financial. Thank you to the businesses and people who donated gifts for the silent and live auction.
