The Central Alberta Pregnancy Care Centre (CAPCC) is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year with a fall banquet, silent auction and fashion show this month.
The October 25 event will be held at the Sheraton Hotel in Red Deer and afford the opportunity to thank donors for their generous support and raise funds for CAPCC programs.
“We will be celebrating the past and looking toward the future,” says Executive Director Anne Waddell in a media release. “There is so much we’re thankful for in our 30 years of service. The past year alone has been an incredible milestone for us, after moving to our new location in downtown Red Deer to increase services, including our Maternity Home and expanding our office space in Rocky Mountain House.”
According to CAPCC officials, the Centre, which was recently nominated as a top three finalist for the Red Deer Chamber of Commerce Award for Non-Profit Organization of the Year, will continue to expand its services in surrounding communities.
The past year in fact saw the new Maternity Home, which provides a safe and stable environment for pregnant and parenting young women, near capacity, with the home also providing life and parenting skills, along with healthy relationships.
“We’ve seen the young women in the home experience independence and stability as they find their feet as parents,” notes Waddell. “The Central Alberta community has really championed this project and we’re grateful to see that the home is already making a big impact and transforming lives.”
With four office locations in Central Alberta, including Red Deer, Olds, Sundre and Rocky Mountain House, CAPCC offers free and confidential support and education in a safe and nonjudgmental environment regardless of age, gender, race, or religion.
Tickets for the event are free of charge thanks to generous table sponsors.
