AHPCA Casino Fundraiser

Please help support AHPCA by volunteering at our primary fundraising event: the 2019 Alberta Hospice Palliative Care Association Casino at the Elbow River Casino in Calgary on Tuesday June 18 and Wednesday June 19, 2019.

We rely on the funds raised at the casino for our special projects and many of our operational expenses. Volunteering at this event is a fun, quick, and very effective way to support individuals and families facing hospice palliative care.

There are 20 volunteers required daily to cover the different shifts. Depending on your job, the shifts will run 10:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., or 6:45 p.m. to 4:00 a.m., or 10:45 p.m. to 4:00 a.m.
