Answering the Call, Offering Hope, the Eighth Annual UP & Away Charity Gala, May 4, 2017

The 8th Annual UP & Away Charity Gala raised an unprecedented $200,000 to support the Affordable Counselling Program of Catholic Family Service. These funds will ensure that compassionate and high-caliber counselling is available to people of all faiths and cultures, regardless of their income or circumstances.

“This support could not have come at a better time,” said CEO Patricia Jones. “The Affordable Counselling Program received a funding cut at the end of 2016 and investment from the community will ensure families can continue to receive counselling at a rate they can afford.”

Corporate support for the Gala has never been better, thanks to Gold Sponsors Precision Drilling and Bennett Jones, plus 15 additional companies who sponsored the event in the face of continued economic strain in Calgary.

“We are profoundly grateful that the corporate community is choosing to invest in building strong families through affordable counselling,” said UP Board Chair Tony Ciarla.

On behalf of the UP Gala Committee and everyone at Catholic Family Service, THANK YOU so much for purchasing tickets and tables, donating and purchasing silent auction and live auction items, supporting our balloon and other raffles, and pledging your financial support throughout the evening.

Thank You to Our 2017 Sponsors
