What is Love? Fundraising Gala

  • Calgary Golf and Country Club 909 50 Avenue Southwest Calgary, AB, T2S 1H8 Canada (map)

The ‘What is Love?’ Fundraiser Gala is Emma House’s annual fundraising event and is an opportunity to connect together with leaders, entrepreneurs, social activists, and businesses in Calgary, to network, leverage joint resources and connect on a common cause: to end homelessness among pregnant women and youth in Calgary and area.  

The theme, ‘What is Love?’ Urges us to consider what real love is and how we show it in our daily lives. This is an event where we as Calgary can join together and demonstrate love by supporting expectant mothers and their babies!

Featuring Special Guest Speaker Laureen Harper!
