Tamara Lee-Anne Cardinal shares her inspiration
For almost 80 years, ATB Financial has remained steadfastly committed to Alberta’s communities.
ATB's tradition of supporting Albertans is as strong as ever in Ponoka. The Ponoka ATB branch team loves to support local groups and projects, giving generously of their time and resources. Over the past eight years, the branch has independently raised over $167,500--including $29,500 this year--through its unique, western-themed jail and bail, the ATB Financial Outlaw Round Up. Groups who have benefited from this event include the Ponoka Youth Centre, Ponoka Victims Services, the SplashPark Project, Ponoka Composite High School Broncs Athletics Program, KidSport Ponoka, Ponoka Minor Soccer and the Ponoka Elementary School Community Playground Project.
This year, we celebrated our eighth annual Outlaw Round Up in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ponoka. Big Brothers Big Sisters is Canada’s leading child and youth mentoring charity. The Ponoka Big Brothers Big Sisters team is committed to growing life changing relationships that inspire and empower our youth to reach their potential—both as individuals and citizens—through friendship, mentoring and fun.
The Outlaw Round Up and pancake breakfast took place June 29, 2016 at our “hometown hooskow” at the Royal Canadian Legion. Thank you to everyone who wrangled up your rustlers and moseyed on down for some pancakes, entertainment and fun as we arrested our local outlaws in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ponoka.
