Our Signature Gala: INNfluence

Save the date for Saturday, October 21, 2023 for the 2nd annual Innfluence Gala, presented by the TELUS Convention Centre, Marriot Hotels, Encore and Modern Rentals.

An INNcredible night of entertainment, experiences and exquisite food. INNfluence is an event where the energy is palpable as Calgary’s influential community unites together in the fight against family homelessness.

By definition, influence refers to “the capacity to have an effect.” At Inn from the Cold, INNfluence, speaks to the collective ability our community has in ending family homelessness.

For 26 years, Calgarians have INNfluenced Inn from the Cold’s ability to support those in need— families facing the brunt of a housing crisis.

This years’ INNfluence Gala theme is inspired by the transformative nature of the work that Inn from the Cold facilitates — enabled by the generosity of Calgarians.

At the Inn, we know that the generosity of our donors has the power to transform lives, because we see it every day.

This year, on the heels of our 25th anniversary, we want to capture the spirit of transformation through a vibrant, dazzling, and lively evening experience by leaning into a theme inspired by another transformative era — the roaring twenties.

Steps to End Homelessness

The 12th annual Steps to End Homelessness, presented by Tamarack Valley Energy, was a huge success! On Sunday, April 30, over 350 Calgarians took the uphill climb at the McHugh Bluff stairs in Crescent Heights.  4,433 sets of stairs were completed, and over $140,000 was raised in the fight against family homelessness.

Steps to End Homelessness was founded in 2009 by community advocate Suzanne West — born out of her desire to change the world and her commitment to advocate for the less fortunate. Suzannes passion and determination to end child and family homelessness was contagious and tireless. The event is now held in Suzanne’s honour, with all funds raised matched by her family foundation, the Power of One Foundation.
