Annual golf tradition to support the funding of critical health needs of children, women and families in Maritime Canada

HALIFAX, May 3, 2012 /CNW/ - The IWK Health Centre Foundation has been selected as the benefiting charity for the 2012 TELUS World Skins Game taking place on Monday, July 30 and Tuesday, July 31 at the Glen Arbour Golf Course in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The funds raised from the event will go to the IWK Health Centre, which provides critical and specialized care to women, children and families throughout the Maritimes.

"On behalf of the IWK Health Centre Foundation, I'm honoured to thank TELUS for generously supporting the IWK," said Jennifer Gillivan, president and CEO of the IWK Health Centre Foundation. "TELUS is an amazing donor and we so appreciate its commitment in making the IWK a world-class centre of excellence for Maritime children, women, and families."

"As part of TELUS' ongoing commitment to 'give where we live', and the TELUS World Skins Game's long-standing tradition of benefiting local charities, we are pleased to support the IWK Health Centre Foundation and help maritime families receive the quality care they need," said Gen.

"TELUS' gift will fund essential programs to ensure the IWK provides specialized health care right here at home in the Maritimes."
