What makes a fun event even better? When your attendance supports a worthy cause, like giving women and their families the resources to build a better life. That’s exactly what you do when you attend a YW Calgary event, support a participant with a pledge or donation, or host your own event in support of YW.
Thank you for joining us at this year’s event in recognition of International Women’s Day 2017. The event was a huge success – we greatly appreciated your support.
