For the tenth year, the SHARP Foundation will be proudly hosting - Deep Roots - a marquee event that celebrates diversity and inclusion within the Calgary area!
The event will be hosted by drag queen performer Mystare, and will be taking place at Broken City which is located at 613 11 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2R 0E1 on Sunday September 1st 2019
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” and celebrate SHARP’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.
With the aging of HIV, more and more people within the LGBTQ2S+, as well as other vulnerable sectors are predicted to need the safe, affordable, non-judgemental services that SHARP has provided for the past 29 years.
Throughout the week of pride, SHARP will be partnering with Broken City through a variety of pride events in order to help raise more funds for our 24/7 care facilities.
This year, SHARP’s fundraising goal during the pride campaign is to raise $20,000 for our 24/7 care facilities which have supported over 400 Albertans in a span of 29 years.
