The Honourable Rona Ambrose will be the guest speaker at the upcoming Calgary Leadership Luncheon presented by Intact Insurance, held at the Hyatt Regency Calgary on Friday, September 20th.

Since 2013, the Calgary Leadership Luncheon has brought together some of the most influential members of the Calgary business community for a thought-provoking program and important fundraiser for SOS Children’s Villages’ work with vulnerable children.

Ms. Ambrose is a dynamic national business leader, a champion for the rights of women and girls, the former Leader of Canada’s Official Opposition in the House of Commons, and the former leader of the Conservative Party of Canada.

“I am honoured to be the guest speaker at the Calgary Leadership Luncheon to celebrate the Calgary business community and support the important work of SOS Children’s Villages around the world,” said Ms. Ambrose. “When we invest in quality care for children at risk of growing up alone, we can ensure the next generation has the skills and resources to become leaders in their communities, and build a brighter future.”

SOS Children’s Villages Canada celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, with events across Canada to thank supporters and raise awareness of the millions of children who are growing up alone. As SOS Children’s Villages Canada marks this milestone year, the Calgary Leadership Luncheon will celebrate the Calgary business community’s ongoing support and generosity towards helping children in need.

“There is still much work to be done to help the 220 million children who are growing up alone around the world. Together, we have the incredible opportunity to reach even more children through SOS’ model of family-like care in the coming years. Join us as we build on our 50 years of impact so children at risk of being left behind can grow up with love, respect and security,” said Thomas Bauer, President and CEO of SOS Children’s Villages Canada.

All proceeds from this event will help provide the necessities of life – food, clothing, shelter, and a loving home – to some of the world’s most vulnerable children. Tickets are available to the general public as of August 1st. To reserve your table or seat for the event, visit:
