The Rotary Club of Calgary at Stampede Park’s major fundraising initiative takes place annually at the Calgary Stampede in partnership with Stampede Lotteries. Thousands of volunteer shifts filled by our members, partners, family, and friends over the ten days of Stampede see us selling tickets on the Rotary Dream Home and the Million Dollar 50/50. This extensive volunteer service rewards our Rotary Club with an estimated $900,000 each year which is donated back into our community for people in need.
As the world slowly unravels from COVID-19, we find ourselves in an historic year of the Calgary Stampede being cancelled. The Stampede survived both Wars, the Great Depression, and the 2013 flood just a week before opening, but sadly could not beat COVID – 19.
As a result, our Rotary Club’s ability to raise money in 2020 to rival past levels has been severely impacted.
However, this has not dampened the spirit of our club members who have an insatiable charitable drive. It simply means we will find new ways to raise much-needed money for our community. One such way is your donation today to the Community Service - Charities campaign either by becoming a monthly donor or making a one-time donation.
We recognize the critical need in Calgary by all charities, and especially this year. We also recognize the impact COVID-19 has had on our citizens, organizations, businesses, educational institutions, arts, and culture. Virtually no individual, business or organization has been left unscathed.
But if people in need are important to you, and people of all walks of life and all ages, we invite you to donate to the Community Service - Charities campaign. We have always worked in partnership that exemplifies truth, fairness, goodwill, and benefiting all concerned. Join our fundraising efforts to help us make the difference that our Calgary charities need today.
If you would like to make a donation to the Calgary Food Bank 20 Days in 2020, the Stay in School Program, or the Mental Health Vision, please return to the "About" tab and select the fund of your choice. Thank you for your support.
