10 years of Referrals – Thank You!


Costen & Associates would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our clients and associates for their referrals in 2012. Because of your support, we were able to donate over $1,200 to some very deserving charities!

We began our Customer Referral Program ten years ago, on January 1, 2003, as a way to say Thank You to our friends and associates. For every referral provided that results in new business, Costen & Associates makes a $5.00 donation to our Charity of the Year, or a Charity of your choice. Since its inception, the program has been a huge success. Below is a list of our designated Charities of the Year that we have assisted with your help over the last ten years:

2012 Charity of the Year: Emma House (www.emmahouse.ca)
2011 Charity of the Year: Youville (www.youville.net/)
2010 Charity of the Year: Alberta Diabetes Foundation (www.afdr.ab.ca)
2009: Progressive Alternative Society of Canada (www.pasc-calgary.org)
2008: Potential Place (www.potentialplace.org)
2007: Servants Anonymous Society (www.servantsanon.com)
2006: Children’s Cottage Society (www.childrenscottage.ab.ca)
2005: The Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter (www.calgarywomensshelter.com)
2004: The Foundation for Fighting Blindness (www.blindness.org)
2003: The Canadian Cancer Socity (www.cancer.ca)

We are also excited to announce that the number of referrals we received from you, our clients, friends and associates, increased by 79.9% from last year! Costen & Associates has recently selected our 2013 Charity of the Year, The Alex (www.thealex.ca), and we are enthusiastic about fundraising and hope that with your continued support we can raise even more funds and awareness for this amazing charity in 2013.

We would also like to invite you to share any ideas or suggestions you may have for our 2014 Charity of the Year.

Please stay tuned for a feature Blog on The Alex, coming soon!

Thank you for your support and best wishes for health and happiness in 2013,
The Costen & Associates Team
