Dear Friends of the FCJ Christian Life Centre,

Greetings of peace!

We are excited to invite you to our upcoming annual fundraising event for our retreat Centre. This year's theme is “Autumn Tea Party”, and we have planned an enjoyable afternoon filled with activities that we hope will bring joy to everyone who attends.

The event will take place on September 17 at 2PM, at FCJ Christian Life Centre (219 19 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2S 0C8). As a valued friend of our organization, we would be honored if you would join us for an afternoon tea event. 

We hope to raise $25,000 through this fundraising event to assist with the upgrading of the Centre ensuites and bathrooms on the 2nd & 3rd floors. After 40 plus years of use, the bathrooms need an overhaul, especially the showers, bathtubs, and toilets, as the patchwork of the leaking and wear and tear needs to be addressed. The funds raised from this event will help us provide comfortable and functional facilities for our guests, ensuring they have a pleasant and enjoyable stay at our retreat Centre. We believe that our retreat Centre has the power to transform lives, and we are committed to making it accessible to as many people as possible.

We kindly request your consideration for a donation to help fund the renovations, particularly for handicap accessible washrooms. The FCJ Centre relies solely on donations and revenue generated from our conferences. Your contribution, regardless of the amount, would be greatly appreciated and tax receipts will be issued for all donations. Donations can be made through this link: https://www.fcjcentre.ca/donate

Your presence and support at our fundraising event will make a significant impact on the success of our efforts. We believe that your generosity will help us achieve our fundraising goals and we look forward to sharing our progress with you.)

 

Thank you for your continued support and we hope to see you at our event. Please RSVP by September 8, so we can plan accordingly. FCJ Christian Life Centre is incorporated in Alberta since February 26, 1979. Our charitable registration number 118913581RR. Receipts will be issued for all donations.
