Update Regarding the Friends of the Foundation Dinner on March 19

March 13, 2020


Yesterday afternoon, the Government of Alberta issued new recommendations regarding COVID-19 and large gatherings. In light of these recommendations and with the best interests of our guests in mind, the Community Foundation has made the decision not to proceed with Thursday’s Friends of the Foundation Dinner for 2020. Our primary concern is for the health and welfare of our community. We want to ensure that we are abiding by the recommendations of our province’s public health experts and that we are doing our part to keep our community safe.

A full refund will be issued to all ticketholders. Anyone who purchased tickets through will see a refund applied automatically to their original method of payment. Those who purchased their tickets through the Community Foundation office will be contacted regarding their refund.

The Community Foundation office will remain open during regular business hours at this time, though we request that those who have recently travelled internationally or who may be experiencing symptoms refrain from visiting in person.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Marci Stickel, LA Chefs, and the Coast Hotel & Conference Centre for being flexible at a time when it is critical for our community to work together.
