It's official - fall is here! Whether you're back to work or school, sending your kids back, or just getting into that post-summer 'get stuff done' piece of mind, it's a great time to give back to yourself, others, and the community. Our Hedkandi Loves Local picks this month all focus around this theme, so read on for ideas on how to do the above!

CALGARY IMMIGRANT WOMAN'S ASSOCIATION 35th ANNIVERSARY GALA

For 35 years, the Calgary Immigrant Women's Association (or CIWA) has been providing unparalleled and culturally diverse programming and services for newcomers to our city, responding to the varying needs of its patrons. Since it's inception, they've served over 80,000 immigrant and refugee women.

Their services range from employment training and skills, language training, childcare, family support, and settlement and integration support. As a nonprofit organization, the need for funding is always important, so we ask our interested guests to buy tickets to their 35th Anniversary Gala or consider supporting the organization in other ways. 

The Gala takes place at Civic on Third at 5:30 pm, and features cocktails, dinner, and a keynote address from Avenue Magazine Top 40 Under 40 Alumni Geeta Sankappanavar, so get your tickets soon!
