For the ninth year, the SHARP Foundation will be proudly hosting Pride City/ Deep Roots which is a week-long pride celebration that celebrates diversity and inclusion within the Calgary area.
It is also an opportunity to raise important funds for SHARP’S 24/7 care facilities, which supports individuals living with complex health and social issues including chronic disease, homelessness, mental health, addictions, trauma, poverty and stigma/discrimination.
Deep Roots was initiated in 2009 by a group of professional gay men, Friends of Beswick, to raise awareness and funds to sustain the care that so many of their loved ones living with HIV and dying of AIDS had received through SHARP. It was a way to say “thank you” !
This year we are planning for a bigger and better event with DJs, some of Calgary’s best drag performances, Air Canada Raffle tickets, and more! Our goal is to raise $35,000 of which 100% goes directly to 24/7 supports for Calgarians living with complex health and social issues!
