What is Love Phase 2 - Second Annual Emma House Gala
The What is Love - Phase 2' Emma House Gala is a night where we will come together and celebrate the many faces of Emma House and the diversity among us.
The women whose lives are transformed through the caring support, services and education provided by Emma Maternity House Society come from all cultures and backgrounds. This night, we celebrate them and look forward to sharing with you: their struggles, their hard work, and finally - their achievements throughout their Emma House journey. As with this year's International Day of Women 2020, we endeavour every day to improve our women's situations and to celebrate their victories.
Join us for an evening of celebrating and uplifting mothers who have overcome a multitude of barriers and connecting with other leaders, entrepreneurs, and businesses. Together, let's network and leverage joint resources for a common cause: to end homelessness among mothers and babies in Calgary and area.
This will also be a very special evening of sharing exciting new developments and truly the next phase of Emma House in 2020!
