WE DID IT
We are so happy to announce that our first annual Monster March was a huge success!
Each child made their own costume and proudly showed it off as they marched their way 3 km through the heart of Calgary from Prince's Island to St. Patrick's Island to raise money for the Children's Cottage Society.
We had so much fun visiting with the Cottage Society's mascot and Director Patty Kilgallon as we learned about what we were marching for and all the children that would be helped with the money raised.
It is with much excitement to announce that with the help of 90 little monsters and 40 adult helpers, we were able to reach our goal of $10,000!!!
Elisha Jackson, Fund Development Manager, said "$10,000 will do so much for our Crisis Nursery. For example, it could help provide nutritious meals for the children for up to 100 days! It could provide all the maintenance on the building for a whole year. Or even pay for our utilities for 6 months to keep the kids warm and comfortable. It is just such an amazing gift to the children and families we serve".
Thank you so much for all your help and support. We look forward to making this an annual event and can't wait to watch the event grow.
