It's almost time for our favourite annual SHARP Foundation charity event - Lawn Bowls for Beswick House!! On August 9th, 2014 starting at 11am at the Bow Valley Lawn Bowling Club in West Hillhurst we will throw those awkwardly weighted balls as straight we can to support this incredibly important foundation.
Established in 1990, the SHARP Foundation is a Calgary-based non-profit organization. They are committed to providing a continuum of care including housing, healthcare, and support to those individuals infected and affected by HIV. The SHARP Foundation works in effort to prevent homelessness and fulfil the need for more acute health care facilities in Calgary for those with HIV.
SHARP currently operates five programs located in Calgary residential neighbourhoods. Residents are provided with affordable housing and individualized support to meet their housing, medical, and psycho-social needs. After stabilizing an individual’s medication regimen we provide programs to improve her/his quality of life and to value life.
100% of the proceeds from this absolutely fantastic event will go directly to the facility to keep it ship shape and running smoothly. This will be our 7th year at the event and every single year we laugh, play and have a couple of cocktails for the cause. There will be prizes for winning teams as well as 50/50 draws, door prizes, burgers and more!!
