Summer is sadly coming to a close but the Spirit of Chrysalis is really heating up in Calgary!
Our free, monthly information sessions continue to be well attended and plans are well underway for our 2nd Annual Spirit of Chrysalis Gala Fundraising Breakfast.
Our inaugural event held in October 2013 was held on a very small scale in comparison to the Gala events we host in Edmonton. Our first Gala Breakfast was used as a pilot to lay the groundwork for future growth of this type of event.
Attended by 80 people, the inaugural breakfast event raised more than $23,000 to allow us to continue to offer the highest quality programs and services to those we serve in Calgary and surrounding areas.
Not knowing exactly how things would turn out, we were thrilled with the success of our first event and are very excited to start making this a staple event in Calgary during the month of October.
That said, we are pleased to inform you that our 2nd Annual Spirit of Chrysalis Gala Breakfast in Calgary will be held on Thursday, October 2 at the Petroleum Club (319 – 5 Ave SW) from 7:30 – 8:30 am. This event is absolutely free to attend and anyone interested in learning more about Chrysalis is welcome, and encouraged, to attend and all guests will be treated to a complimentary continental breakfast.
The program will include stories and speeches from Chrysalis board members, staffers, volunteers and of course, the individuals whom we serve. The program will portray how important the programs and services we offer are to the individuals accessing them and how together we help craft a better quality of life for everyone relying on the support Chrysalis provides. The Gala Breakfast will also feature a terrific video which will showcase some amazing stories and great partnerships that have allowed Chrysalis to make a real impact in the lives of the individuals whom we serve and the community as a whole!
Now, this is a fundraiser and everyone in attendance will be asked to consider supporting the organization however they see fit though nobody should feel obligated to donate should they choose not to. The Gala Breakfast also acts as a wonderful introduction to the work and mission of our organization so if you are wanting to learn more about us, feel free to join us!
All funds raised thanks to the Gala Breakfast will allow Chrysalis Calgary to upgrade and enhance our current programs and service or introduce new programs to those accessing services at Chrysalis.
