On November 15, 2012 the highly-anticipated National Philanthropy Day luncheon was presented by RBC at the BMO Centre on the Stampede Grounds. National Philanthropy Day® is a special day set aside once a year to recognize great contributions of philanthropy and those who are actively making our community a better place to live, work and play.
Co-hosted by Calgary's own Dave Kelly and Angela Knight, this flagship event of National Philanthropy Awareness Week activities allowed more than 1,200 people to hear inspiring stories of philanthropy through the examples set by the Generosity of Spirit™ Honourees. Attendees celebrated the accomplishments of the nonprofit sector, and were challenged to change the world through a giving heart.
Charities, like Boys and Girls Clubs of Calgary (BGCC) find the National Philanthropy Day® Luncheon is an ideal way to say thank you to key donors and volunteers. This year, BGCC nomintated QR77 Westin Calgary Children's Foundation who were recipients of the Outstanding Philanthropic Group category of the Generosity of Spirit™ Awards.
