The Prince George Airport Authority (PGAA) understands the importance of being involved in our community. To achieve this, an active role has been taken by supporting Prince George’s various community initiatives and charity programs.
The PGAA is committed to cultivating and promoting the Airport's role and image within the community by:
In March 2015, the Prince George Airport Authority
of Hope Air's "Outstanding Philanthropist Award."
The PGAA was presented with this incredible hardware in Vancouver at
the Canadian Airport Council's Airports Canada Conference.
We are so humbled and thankful to the Prince George community
for helping us help Hope Air.
Every summer, the Prince George Airport Authority hosts their annual Charity Golf Tournament open to all stakeholders, associates, partners, and friends. All proceeds from prize draws and other activities conducted at the tournament are donated to charity. The Prince George Airport also participates in fundraising events such as the Festival of Trees, the Salvation Army Kettle Campaign and their Adopt a Family program at Christmas. Other charities/community groups the airport supports include the Mustard Seed, the PG Cougars, BC SPCA North Cariboo Branch, Variety - the Children's Charity, UNBC JDC West and the Fire Pit Cultural Centre to name a few.
The Prince George Airport Authority is gearing up to host another Charity Golf Tournament taking place July 18th, 2015 at Alder Hills Golf Course. Last year $8,500 was raised for Hope Air which is a national charity that arranges free air travel to those who can not afford to get to medical appointments outside of their community. The Prince George to Vancouver route is the second busiest in all of Canada. A huge thank you to all the sponsors, participants and organizers for putting on such an amazing event. Registration is $60 per person which includes green fees, dinner and lots of run. To register, please contact Michelle: 250 963 2407 mkenny(at)pgairport(dot)ca
