Over the past 3 years Bill’s wife Diane and many of his friends and supporters gathered for a night of cocktails, appetizers and silent auctions in the month of May to raise funds for the Endowment Fund.
Bill’s home building company Beattie Homes Ltd is another key supporter of the “Bill Beattie Memorial Endowment Fund” in which Bill was the founder and CEO. The company has committed to donate $500 for every home sold in both Calgary & Edmonton during the last 4 years.
The “Do Not Come Event”
Bill’s daughters held a unique one-of-a-kind event in honor of what would have been his 60th birthday. On January 3, 2012, guests received fancy invitations that suggested they could creatively celebrate their memory of Bill on his special day, however or wherever they pleased, at his UN-Birthday Party. And, instead of having an actual fundraising event supporters were encouraged to make a donation to “The Bill Beattie Endowment Fund” on his behalf. This event successfully raised nearly $50,000.
