Wanderers/Brigadoon Village partner to bring the community together through sport
April 21, 2022
The Halifax Wanderers Football Club is launching a unique partnership with Brigadoon Village, the camp that gives extraordinary kids the opportunity to be ordinary.
Brigadoon Village is a not-for-profit year-round recreational facility in Annapolis Valley that offers medically supported camps for kids living with health conditions or other life challenges. Having just completed a $12.5M expansion, Brigadoon is now Canada’s largest pediatric medical camp.
Brigadoon is creating the new 200-person Brigadoon Corner at the Wanderers Grounds as the club continues finding new ways to connect the dots between community and sport.
“Our driving mission is to make our community stronger through sport which is why we are thrilled to partner with an organization as vital to our community as Brigadoon Village.” Wanderers Founder and President Derek Martin said. “We want to help generate even more awareness for the wonderful work they do, and we know that the funds we can help them raise will be put to fantastic use.”
The partnership includes initiatives in support of Brigadoon through a mixture of gameday sponsorships, 50/50 revenues, ticket sales in the Brigadoon Corner and the Rover Cup Tournaments in September. Brigadoon is actively looking for new partners to join them in the Village on game days this season. The corner will welcome camp families and make football accessible to a wide range of new fans.
“We admire how the Wanderers have been able to bring our community together and consistently look for ways to give back. That’s why we’re thrilled to move forward on a joint venture with them & honoured to have been selected as one of their key philanthropic partners,” Brigadoon Village CEO David Graham said.
“We hope that, through this partnership, we’ll be able to teach more Atlantic Canadians about what we do at Brigadoon Village. Offering our campers, their families, and our supporters a chance to ‘come together from away’ will bring the magic of camp to the city for the first time, and we’re incredibly excited to help make that happen.”
As a part of this partnership, Wanderers players and staff will be visiting Brigadoon for a team-building event and to see what the day-to-day activities are like for camp attendees.
