September Soup Sisters

Gather, Eat, and Make a Difference!


Join Rowan House, Soup Sisters and the Millarville Racing and Ag Society for an afternoon filled with lively conversation, chopping, laughter and warm kitchen camaraderie that culminate in a simple, sit-down meal of soup, salad, bread and wine for all participants.

Each event produces approximately 200 servings of fresh soup that goes directly to Rowan House where it is enjoyed by residents, Outreach clients and Healthy Relationship Group participants.

Turn your next team building event or social gathering into a do good, feel good activity!

To book a soup making event contact or visit our News Page to see which other dates available. 

Please note, Soup Sisters charges a $55 participation fee per person to cover the expenses of ingredients for the soups, the venue and equipment. This ensures that the best ingredients possible are used every time for the soup we provide to women, children and youth.

2018 Breakfast with the Guys - Foothills

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!
