About La Due Ladies Lunch Foundation
In 2010, La Due Ladies Lunch Foundation was formed by a small but mighty group of Calgary women - initially as a fun get together prior to the Calgary Stampede. Over the years, this annual fund raising event has grown to become a well-known, highly anticipated gathering attracting 300 women from all demographics with diverse backgrounds. A bit of Stampede tradition. We chose Florence La Due as our namesake because she played an important role in assisting her husband, Guy Weadick, in founding and developing the Calgary Stampede.
As a further legacy to Florence, the La Due Scholarship fund was established. Since 2017, it has been under the trusteeship of the Calgary Stampede Foundation’s youth program. Each year we award $11,500 in scholarships to nine young women for continuing education at both the high school and post secondary level. Our goal is to increase the amount of funds available and expand the number of young women who are eligible.
Giving back to the Community
With a goal of sharing the wealth within the community we have been able to support the Calgary Stampede Foundation OH Ranch School Program, YWCA Sheriff King Home, Rowan House Emergency Shelter, Calgary Brown Bagging for Kids, Highbanks Society and Calgary Women’s Centre. In 2019, we were pleased to add several other organizations to this list which included RESET Society of Calgary, HomeFront, Airdrie Power and It Takes a Village. All of these charitable organizations foster and support the education and well being of women and children.
After a two year pause we are excited to be gathering in person once again on Thursday July 7th at the Fairmont Palliser Hotel. We have another exciting program lined up this year starting with a champagne reception, a fabulous lunch created by the executive chef at the Palliser and a dynamic guest speaker. Cheryl Sandercock who is well known in Calgary for her skills in Investment Banking, will share with us how being a leader, mentor and advisor to numerous groups focused on supporting and advancing women in engineering is creating sustainable diversity for all. Our live auction will have some once in a lifetime experiences to be enjoyed by the lucky buyers. And last but not least, the fashion will provide some Stampede wardrobe inspiration. Our intention is to reconnect the La Due Community, inspire one another and have some fun. Our goal is to raise money for our scholarship program and the numerous other charitable organizations that we have donated to in the past. One way we plan to do this with an exciting on-line 50-50 raffle.
Tickets will be on sale until 1:30PM on July 7, 2022. The draw will be made at the Fairmont Palliser Hotel on July 7, 2022 at 1:45PM. The winners will be contacted by phone and email to claim their prize. We thank-you for your support during these trying times.
