Butter Loves Local: PARKFORUM + Robbie Burns Bash

We're not huge fans of New Year's resolutions, but we love the opportunity the new year brings for a fresh start and inspiration, and we wanted to pass along some upcoming events that are sure to inspire! First, is PARKFORUM from our friends at PARK; a two-day summit for creatives and entrepreneurs to learn and grow. 

Second is the Robbie Burns Bash, an event which raises funds for The Alex, a leading nonprofit in Calgary providing health care for our city's most vulnerable. Read on for details.

PARKFORUM is a two-day event for creative entrepreneurs from all levels of experience to learn how to grow and sustain their businesses in the creative industry.

Sessions focus on art, fashion, and the various skills/tools one might need to take their businesses to the next level. With guest speakers from local businesses as well as larger creative companies like Herschel and Lululemon, there's sure to be a wealth of information shared.

As our guest, we want to give you 10% off your ticket(s) - just use the promo code PARKFORUM10 at checkout.

Added bonus: Our director of finance and systems, Wray Bokitch, will be speaking on the "Entrepreneurial Journey" panel on Saturday at 3:10 - don't miss her and the other panelist's brilliance!

Robbie Burns Bash

The second annual Robbie Burns Bash takes place on Thursday, Jan. 25 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the St. Louis Hotel. There will be entertainment, a silent auction, food from some of Calgary's best restaurants, as well as beer, wine, and scotch tastings. Tickets are $50 and cover all of your food and beverage samplings. 

All proceeds from the event go to supporting the Alex Community Health Centre. The Alex is changing how we look at health care in Calgary. Their health, housing, and food programs support our most vulnerable neighbours, tackling tough health and social issues head-on. Since 1973, their cost-effective programs have saved millions of taxpayer dollars by moving people from poverty to stability and from crisis to wellness. Learn more about The Alex here.

Butter loves you!
