It is with great pleasure that Sagium celebrates a very special moment with Bill Andrew. On April 26, 2017, Bill Andrew was awarded the 2016 Francis Lefaivre Award at the United Way of Calgary and Area’s Annual General Meeting.

This award was created in 2008 in memory of Francis Lefaivre, a close friend of United Way and a generous Calgarian who was an inspiration to many. Recipients must demonstrate a passion for helping their fellow citizens, including commitment to the improvement of social conditions in our community, and significant contributions that help make Calgary a fantastic city for everyone. Recipients must also demonstrate outstanding volunteer service and exceptional community involvement through United Way. Bill has unquestionably done so not only through his contributions to the United Way but also through involvement with many other philanthropic associations, including the Rotary Club of Calgary and Rotary International.

Karen Young, President and CEO of United Way of Calgary comments, “We are delighted to be able to thank Bill for sharing his brilliant mind and his caring heart.  Bill not only met but exceeded the award criteria through the thousands of children and families he helped with his philanthropy and volunteerism.”  Please join us in congratulating Bill on this tremendous achievement.
