Where: Ironwood Stage and Grill, 1229 9 Avenue SE, Calgary

When: Sunday March 31st  from 1 to 5 pm

Why:  Garaventa Lift is once again partnering with Easter Seals Alberta to provide a home renovation and installation of a custom home elevator for one local family facing an accessibility challenge in their home. The Give A Kid A Lift program is the first of its kind in Alberta and is funded solely through community partnerships and revenues from fundraising events like this one.

Join us as we hoist a cold one and sing along to the sounds of The Mocking Shadows, Brother Bandits, Dave McCann and the Firehearts, and of course our host Dave Kelly! 

These musicians and host have graciously donated their time and talents to the cause benefiting Easter Seals Alberta. Food and drinks are available, along with a fantastic silent auction, 50/50 draw and more.

Purchase your tickets today!

Interview Opportunities:

This year’s family and previous recipients will be in attendance, along with Larry Mathieson – CEO Easter Seals Alberta.

Did You Know Part 1

In 1951 Canadian Mothers began marches such as one led by Canada’s first female Cabinet Minister, Ellen Fairclough, MP for Hamilton West. As a result of their efforts, the research of Dr. Jonas Salk was well funded, creating the historic made-in-Canada cure for polio. Today, Easter Seals Alberta funds vital programs and services for adults with disabilities and special needs.
