 Rotary Sarcee’s 18th annual Art from the Heart was a smashing success thanks to all our donors, artists, sponsors and the wonderful ladies at Figure 8 who put the event on in support of us and our little ones! Though totals are still being tallied, we do know the funds donated will go far at our facilities like the Crisis Nursery — a 14-bed, 24-hour crisis childcare facility that helps families in times of crisis.

Every piece of art sold, every balloon popped and every silent auction item won will help Calgary’s children stay safe and stay in healthy families. Thank you Calgary for your continued support of our community’s most vulnerable.
