November 11/17 from Tony Knight: "I wanted to thank Calgary West, on behalf of the Atrium, for the $25,000 cheque that we received last Monday. This is huge and means so much to me personally, and to Bethany and the Atrium team. Calgary West is truly making a difference — thanks so much."
"It gave me great pleasure to present the cheque to Coy Beaton, of Bethany on Tuesday morning — at The Atrium meeting. After the meeting a few of us, including Evelyn Buckley, toured the site. I have included a couple of photos. Thanks again Calgary West. Cheers, Tony"
