Host An Event

Take a stand against family violence and abuse and host an event on behalf of the Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter. Your event will help raise awareness, and provide financial support for our organization. Events held by individuals and community partners allow us to provide much needed programs and services to support local families.


Host an Event virtually and stay socially distanced while raising awareness and funds for a cause! Give us a call and we can help you come up with some fun and interesting ideas.

Independent special events, or third-party fundraisers are a very important component of our fundraising activities. Every event held in support of the Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter gets us one step closer to achieving our mission to end family violence and abuse. Third Party event options can include:

  • Golf Tournaments (i.e. Charity of Choice for proceeds, selling mulligans and putting contests)
  • Stampede Parties
  • Corporate or individual events & parties
  • Challenge Events (i.e. walks, runs, scavenger hunts, fitness/sport challenges)
  • Auctions or Share of Ticket Sales
  • Or your own creative and unique fundraising idea


Your event is your opportunity to participate in charitable and community work that is fun and meaningful while sending an inspirational message to the community.


We encourage new events big and small. We are always interested in new partnerships and look forward to supporting your fundraising or awareness-building event however we can.

Client Testimonials

My time at the Shelter kept me from harm. It also gave me the hope I thought I had lost. 

~ Jan

It’s still amazing to me that such a simple step as one phone call could so dramatically change a person’s life.

~ Catherine

After 50 years of marriage I didn’t want to leave him, but now I know how to keep myself safe in my own home.


It felt great to break the silence. I told my counsellor things about my marriage that I have never told anyone because I felt so ashamed.

~ Sierra
