RAISE HOPE

RAISE HOPE, presented by Richardson GMP, is one of Calgary’s premier non-profit fundraising events bringing together passionate people in the community to support the world-leading non-profit child search organization, Missing Children Society of Canada (MCSC). Attended by over 200 people, the event attracts Calgary’s most influential business and community leaders.

Last year, the event was instrumental in raising critical funds for MCSC day-to-day program operations, creating important networking opportunities, and solidifying important program partners, such as Microsoft and Google.

Please join us at RAISE HOPE on International Missing Children’s Day, Thursday, May 25th, to continue the support of our professional investigation, emergency response, public awareness and family support programs. Your attendance will help police and families in active and ongoing searches to return missing children to a safe haven. This year our event will be held at Sub Rosa, beneath The Guild in Calgary, and will feature great entertainment, chances to win a round trip flight for two people anywhere WestJet flies and incredible live and silent auction packages, such as a Palm Springs getaway including flights. Come raise a glass for RAISE HOPE!
