First Annaul St. Lazarus Sock Hop

This event was held 4 May, 2018. It Featured Music and Dance from the 1950's to the 1970's with prizes for best costume and spot dance prizes. Great fun was had by all. We raised over $4,000.00 for Palliative Care through admission fees, raffle tickets and a 50/50 draw.

Casino Days

For two days every year our members become volunteer staff the one of Calgary's casinos. Proceeds from casino revenue (after expenses) are given to Registered Charities who participate. We can be chip runners or work behind the counter exchanging vouchers and chips. But the best job is counter. One counts up all the profits made the the casino that night.

The casino provides free lunch and/or dinner. The volunteer room has a large television, reading material, tables, chairs, and comfortable couches. The fridge is loaded with beverages and snacks. Everyone enjoys themselves; patrons, staff, and volunteers. It's a great experience.
