The African Community

On behalf of Board Chair, Dr. Tope Roberts, and CEO, Dee Adekugbe, I am pleased to invite you to Ruth's House 1st Year Fundraiser Gala on February 25, 2023, starting at 5pm, at Hotel Blackfoot, in Calgary.

Since its inception in February 2022, Ruth's House has had the privilege of collaborating with many communities and agencies to establish the first ethnocultural domestic violence shelter and resource center for the African community, and we could not have achieved this without the support of many. As we celebrate our first-year anniversary, we hope to bring together community partners, corporate supporters, staff, volunteers, and influential members of the Calgary community to enjoy a meal, special guest speakers, entertainment, and great networking opportunities, whilst celebrating Black History Month and the beautiful culture of Africa.

We hope that you will be able to join us for this event and connect with all of us at Ruth’s House, as well as other partners, guests, and dignitaries attending our celebration. Your support of the gala will help us continue to provide services to our community in line with their urgent needs.

Tickets for the gala are $100 per ticket and are available here
