Event description

Description

Breaking Free Foundation (BFF) is a Calgary-based non-profit that helps support victims of trauma and those dealing with PTSD, mental health and addiction. The organization provides Therapy Grants in order to give those with PTSD access to high-quality trauma specialized psychology, as well as a free monthly support meeting for those affected by trauma. Because the organization is almost entirely volunteer-run, they have little overhead.

But they are in a dire position. Funds are extremely low and as a result, they have a long waiting list for their Therapy Grant program. Many Calgarians are reaching out, in desperation with their PTSD and mental health symptoms, and BFF is left in the saddest of positions — unable to help.

Because of this, an emergency fundraiser has been organized to help this important organization afloat! Did you know Canada has the highest rate of PTSD in the world? Did you know 1 in 3 people has fallen victim to sexual trauma? Trauma comes in all forms and BFF sees it all, and they need our support.

THE FUNDRAISER!

Here is where it gets inspiring and amazing! On February 24th, you can take part in an incredible evening in support of BFF. Some of Calgary's most talented artists have stepped up to help us put on a night that will drive incredible conversations and much-needed funds.

At the event, you'll be able to bid on inspiring art — all inspired by trauma or PTSD. The stories behind these incredible works of art will flood you with emotion. Not to mention, these are breathtaking pieces that anyone would want to have in their homes! In addition to the silent art auction, songwriters and spoken word poets will be performing pieces, inspired by their own trauma experiences.

It is going to be an incredible night. Space is limited, so get your tickets! The event is at the gorgeous new Railyard Brewing, and we will have a food truck on-site.
