This year we joined ATB – Emerging Leaders Network second annual W.I.S.E.R. games gala for the second time.

Emerging Leaders Network is a community of people leaders, change leaders and thought leaders that are young, hungry and looking for opportunities. The opportunity to partake in growth, change, development and innovation towards new ideas. Our passion is to make a positive impact on who we are by being accountable innovators in our community. Why ELN? Because Alberta expects not perfect leaders, but great leaders.

This Fundraiser event is in conjunction with Calgarys RESOLVE – alpha house society.

The MENU consisted of:

-For the event we were involved with first hand customer services, food passing, bar service and live chef presentation. We also, created a makeshift behind the scenes production kitchen in order to prepare, plate, finish and garnish the passed food items.
The event was also a success for our partner organization mealshare (though not officially affiliated with the event) whereby for each of the 75 guests in attendance, a meal was made available for someone in need which was a huge bonus!
