MLT Edmonton Sponsors Make-A-Wish Golf Tournament that raises $242,393


This post was written prior to our January 2017 merger, under our previous firm name, MacPherson Leslie & Tyerman LLP.

On June 8, 2016, MLT Edmonton sponsored the Make-A-Wish Foundation  Golf Tournament. This organization grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. To date, Make-A-Wish Northern Alberta and Saskatchewan has granted over 800 wishes to eligible children. Sam Amelio and Rebecca Hansen who are lawyers at MLT, golfed in the tournament. Adam Merrick, who is also an MLT Lawyer as well as President of the Make-A-Wish Foundation Northern Alberta and Saskatchewan, spoke at the golf banquet.  Ethan, the “wish child”, spoke about meeting Astronaut Buzz Aldrin at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, which was very moving.  The tournament raised $242,393 net to Make-A-Wish, bringing the total to over $2.6 million for the 18 years the tournament has run. MLT Edmonton has been a sponsor of this tournament for a number of years.  Hats off to MLT Edmonton for supporting this great cause and donating their time.
