iWave Supports Parkinson Society Canada in Honour of Walter Gretzky
In honour of well-known Canadian philanthropist Walter Gretzky, who was recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, iWave Information Systems (iWave) is donating a one year subscription of their flagship service, Prospect Research Online (PRO), to the Parkinson Society Canada. This service will help the Parkinson Society raise more funds in support of Parkinson’s research in Canada. In April, iWave officials attended the International Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Conference in Vancouver, where Wayne Gretzky addressed the conference attendees. During his address, Wayne disclosed that his father had just been diagnosed with Parkinson’s. He spoke about how his father had helped him and the difference he has made in the philanthropic community. In 2007, Walter was named to the Order of Canada for his dedication to helping a myriad of local, provincial, and national charities.
