    Unfortunately, there are far too many corporations and not-for-profits in our fair city battling either flat or declining revenues and donations year over year. Blessedly, Calgary’s Prostate Cancer Centre (PCC) has seen donations rise. The centre does not receive any government support and therefore relies solely on donor dollars and third party events to keep […]

    It’s more than a bit puzzling that, for the second year in a row, members of the Calgary Police service were banned from marching in uniform in the Calgary Pride Parade even though the men and women in blue were tasked with providing security at the parade. Not to be deterred by the Pride Calgary […]

    Unique would be the best way to describe Sashay Fillet — a fun and cheeky pairing of drag queens and local chefs for a competition-style merging of food and drag. Hot on the heels of Eat North’s inaugural Drags Benny event, Sashay Fillet saw five local chefs partner with local drag queens for a series […]

    The winter that wouldn’t end. Record-breaking heat. Avocado-sized hail. Hazardous air quality indices above 10. The only thing Mother Nature didn’t throw at us was a plague of locusts. The 2018 gardening year was a challenge. One could be forgiven for reaching for the gin before noon. And yet, we Calgary gardeners are a hearty lot […]

    Listen up Mother Nature. I’ve got a bone to pick with you. Not only did you create the postponement of the Hull in One golf tournament, but you made organizers of the Women for Men’s Health pool party at Hotel Arts somewhat stressed. But the terrific team at Hotel Arts can turn on a dime […]

    Mother Nature’s early gift of winter caused the postponement of the 9th annual Hull in One Golf Classic originally scheduled for Sept. 13 at Heritage Pointe Golf Club. Nonetheless, thanks to the inaugural pre-tournament reception Sept. 7 on the grounds of Centron Group’s Bob and Maria Harris’s home, $360,000 (net) was raised for Hull Services. […]
