Mothers Moving Mountains
4th Annual Fundraiser Gala
Saturday, April 29th, 2023
It's time to celebrate local Calgary moms living their dreams!
Our Annual Mothers Moving Mountains Fundraiser Gala is a night fully dedicated to recognizing and celebrating local mom entrepreneurs who are, or are on their way to becoming, confident and passionate leaders of our businesses, organizations, governments, schools, and communities.
Because when mothers are valued, appreciated and supported, families thrive, businesses flourish, and community connections grow!
Empowered mothers change everything!
Moms living their dreams on their own terms deserve to be recognized, celebrated and supported!
And what better way to do that than to award 3 well-deserving moms with a prize package that will help them level up. Not only will the winners receive an award but they will also receive a prize package that provides these business builders with opportunities to access professional insights from industry influencers.
Here are the three different categories you can nominate yourself or another well deserving mom entrepreneur for
Ones to Watch
Recognizing a mom entrepreneur who demonstrates incredible potential despite the challenges she is faced with, not only as a woman but as a mother as well. She possesses a strong vision and determination to achieve business growth and success.
Recognizing a mom entrepreneur who not only embraces her personal ability to create influence for meaningful change but influences others towards action and success locally and/or globally by embracing their own personal ability as well
Recognizing a mom entrepreneur committed to making a difference in their community by serving others, making an impact and leading with purpose. Through her passion and compassion, she takes impactful action for social, cultural and/or environmental issues.
**In order for nominees to qualify as a Finalist, attendance to the gala is required
In Support Of
Mamas for Mamas Calgary was created to help fill the gaps in our city for the many families that struggle day after day. Calgary offers abundant opportunities but can also be very economically turbulent. Our branch assists caregivers and children from every walk of life and from all over Southern Alberta. We provide resource navigation and assistance to families in Calgary, Strathmore, Chestermere, Airdrie, Okotoks, High River, Cochrane, Banff, and Canmore.
Our YYC roots began online through our Facebook group – which continues to grow its membership daily! This is still a pivotal resource where mamas and caregivers are able to share, donate and trade items without monetary compensation. It is also a judgement-free space for mamas to support each other with advice and knowledge. After spending the past few years filling the gaps through the use of volunteer homes and donated storage spaces, the first official Calgary branch opened in January 2022! This incredible space offers a permanent home for program development and operations as well as for resource navigation! It also offers a well-stocked, boutique-like Karma Market for our clients to shop (free of charge) for the items they need. Thanks to our growing team of dedicated volunteers, wonderful staff, and the incredible support of generous donors and sponsors, Mamas has a bright future in the YYC area and will be able to ensure that no child or caregiver is left behind.
As we continue on this path of filling the gaps and changing the systems that contribute to the vicious cycle of poverty, we remain profoundly grateful to everyone that supports our goal of providing a hand up and not just a handout to families who are facing a crisis.
