Community Event Fundraising

Meditative Flow, Tai Chi & Music Fundraiser

Dear Friends,

Did you know that in Alberta, 51 people A DAY are diagnosed with cancer? Not everyone has family or friends to support them. Where do you turn if you are alone? Wellspring Calgary offers hope, resources and support, so no one has to face cancer alone. Every $150 we raise will provide cancer support and programs to someone for one month!

Participating in this event you will help to raise funds and awareness for Wellspring Calgary and the incredible work they do!  

I've been teaching Tai Chi at Wellspring since its beginnings at 2007. I've seen so much gratitude and witnessed so many life changes that I wished more people could experience these programs.  My mom died of breast cancer when she was 50; she was isolated and lonely. I see the value in a community where people share their deepest fears and joys in a safe and friendly environment. Wellspring is one of these places. So please support our event to allow more people to access this community.

Meditative Flow, Tai Chi & Music Fundraiser (Open to the public)

When: Friday, April 20th, 2018 at 6pm

Where: Wellspring Calgary Fountain Court, #120, 703 - 64 Ave SE

Entry: by donation at the door 'Give What You Can'

Please join us to enjoy:

~ a drumming welcome by Pete Oxland. Pete has been hosting Wellspring drum circles and kalimba workshops for about the past 4 years. He feels very privileged to 'follow in the footsteps' of his late wife Barb, who died of cancer, in bringing these meditative forms of music to Wellspring members 

~ meditative flow of Tai Chi demonstrations

~ concert with Jake Peters. Jake's finesse not only lies with his creative ability - styles include bluegrass, blues, classical, folk, gospel, and spanish - but also displays his talents as a fine, meticulous luthier.

Stay to bid on the silent auction, enjoy tea and goodies, and experience a night of giving and receiving.
