September 30, 2006

This year, fifteen bursaries totalling $15,865 were presented to deserving students entering trades training and technology programs.

Vancouver, BC, Canada – Golfers were definitely up to par at Concert Properties' 10th annual golf tournament, raising $35,000 for BC Institute of Technology (BCIT) trades students, with an additional $10,000 matched by BCIT.

Established in 1995, Concert Properties Ltd. Bursary Endowment at BCIT helps deserving students enrolled in BCIT’s trades and technology training programs, where they will learn invaluable skills related to the construction industry.

Thanks to the support of the 154 golfers who played at the Quilchena Golf & Country Club in Richmond on Thursday, August 24, and golfers at previous tournaments, Concert’s endowment now exceeds $425,000 and over the past ten years 112 students have received bursaries totalling more than $97,000.

"We want to thank the many sponsors of the tournament for their continued direct support of trades and technology students,” said Concert Properties’ President & CEO David Podmore. We believe that a strong industry hinges on the availability of skilled, well-trained trades people, and this support makes it possible to provide opportunities and money for education and training,"

This year, fifteen bursaries totalling $15,865 were presented to deserving students entering trades training and technology programs.
