“Any one individual has the power to transform lives, one family at a time.”

INNfluence is presented by Calgary Telus Convention Centre, Marriot International, 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 over 25 years, Calgarians have INNfluenced Inn from the Cold’s ability to support those in need. This year’s INNfluence Gala is a celebration inspired by the unwavering hope, resilience, and strength exemplified in the transformative work of Inn from the Cold, generously supported by Calgarians like you.

Within the walls of the Inn, we witness the incredible power of your contributions, understanding that the hope and strength of our donors have the profound ability to uplift and transform lives.

In 2024, we embark on a new journey, capturing the essence of transformation through a vibrant, dazzling, and lively evening experience inspired by the enchanting world of contemporary circus acts.

This year’s theme, Le Cirque de L’espoir, pays homage to the indomitable spirit of families facing homelessness — showcasing not only their resilience but also the enduring strength that propels them toward a brighter future.
