2019 Breakfast with the Guys - Foothills

Violence and abuse are not issues that should stay behind closed doors - they are the responsibility of the whole community. Last year you showed us you want to be an ally in the prevention of violence against women…

This year we’ll show you how.

Keynote speaker, Mike Cameron is a Canadian writer, speaker and philanthropist. As a sales and leadership authority, Mike has studied the impact that emotion has on human behavior for over 2 decades. After his girlfriend was murdered by an ex-boyfriend in 2015, Mike turned his expertise to lend his voice to help eradicate violence against women. His 2017 Tedx “The way men think of strong is wrong”, urges society to help redefine what it means to be a badass. (To learn more about Mike, visit www.mikecameron.ca)

Breakfast with the Guys* is an opportunity for you to learn small steps that will have a big impact. Together we can create a safer future for those who live with violence every day. These are women you know, in your workplace, on your daughter’s soccer team, around you when you are out with friends and those in the causes you support.

Please join us for networking, coffee and bacon as Mike shares his story and provides simple ways you can be an #allyforher

2019 Fundraiser for Hope & Healing - Presented by Accenture

Eventbrite Cover.png

As we look back on a decade of Hope & Healing Galas, we just wanted to take a moment to share with you, the impact this event has made over the years…

By supporting this fundraiser, you have helped:

  • Build and open a new emergency shelter to keep more women and children safe from abuse,

  • feed, clothe and support those women and children - helping them heal from trauma and begin a new life,

  • create a new Transitional Housing program for women and children struggling to find longer-term affordable housing options,

  • and continue to provide hundreds of school presentations to educate thousands of youth on bullying, dating violence and healthy relationships - to break the intergerational cycle of violence.

Thank you again for making a difference for vulnerable families in our communities.

Join us for our 2019 Fundraiser for Hope & Healing:
Saturday, April 27th at Lynnwood Ranch
Presented by
Accenture

Can we count on you to commit to joining us for one night of fun as we launch our Annual Giving Campaign? Every dollar raised at this event will go toward our goal of raising the $800,000 needed above our government operating grant to continue to protect women and children in crisis today and create violence-free communities into the future.

Family Violence remains a significant problem in Alberta and the Foothills, and there’s still a long road ahead to achieving our vision: that every person is safe and secure and lives without abuse. Will you help us continue growing hope for the next 10 years?

Tickets are $100 each or $800 for a Table of 8. Download our Sponsorship Package and Commitment Form to see more ways we can work together to promote your business and make a difference for women and children!

2018 Breakfast with the Guys - Foothills

  • Okotoks Plus Best Western Inns & Suites (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Please join us for the 1st annual Breakfast with the Guys* - Foothills!

Enjoy a networking breakfast, followed by a presentation by former Calgary Stampeder, Keon Raymond. Raymond will share his personal story of experiencing family violence and what it means to be a part of the Alberta Council of Women's Shelters Leading Change project.

Then you'll be out the door and on your way back to work by 9am!

When women reach out to us for help, it tends to be after the abuse has taken place. We work hard to support them in their journey to healing and continue to change the lives of many women and children. However, we strongly believe that prevention and education are what will create the cultural shift to ultimately end domestic violence.

Violence and abuse are not issues that should stay behind closed doors - they are the responsibility of the whole community.

So Rowan House is calling on the good guys to be leaders for change.

If you are a leader in the community, Breakfast with the Guys is an opportunity for you to take small steps that will have a big impact. Together we can create a safer future for those who live with violence every day. These are women you know, in your workplace, on your daughter’s soccer team, around you when you are out with friends and those in the causes you support.

*Please note, this event is not limited to men. All are welcome!
