The BLGC will be hosting our first Community BBQ of the season on Friday, June 9 from 5pm – 8pm at Community Wise (223 12th Ave SW).
This will be such a wonderful opportunity for folks to come out, hang out, have a burger, hot dog or veggie burger, and enjoy! The Community BBQ will be open to anyone and everyone who’d like to come out and hang out.
Please note that because of the location of CommunityWise and the welcoming of all folks for a meal, the BLGC cannot guarantee that the Community BBQ will be a Safer, Sober Space however we will have a Safety Officer on site. Vegan options will also be available.
The BBQ will be PWYC (Pay What You Can) with all proceeds going back to the BLGC to host other Community Events.
We are actively looking for volunteers to support the Community BBQ so please email email@example.com if you’re interested
See y’all there!!

One of our babes founded the Calgary Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support Centre (PILSC) and they are hosting the second annual PILSC Legacy Run/Walk on June 25th, 2023 at Nose Creek Park in Airdrie.
Of course we love to support our babes so the BLGC is putting together a team to participate! Here's the deal: there are two distances that we can choose from, 2k and 5k. You can either run or walk and we'll support whatever accessibility needs that are raised to us. If you aren't in Calgary, there is an option for a virtual run... so don't let that deter you!
The PILSC's goal is $100,000. The cost for entry is $40/person, which will go toward the organization of the event. Funds raised after that will go to support the amazing and critical work that the PILSC is doing. If finances are a barrier, please let us know by responding to this email. To sign up, click the button below you will be contacted with more information!
PILSC is a non-profit registered charity that helps families connect to support on their path to healing after pregnancy or infant loss. Their mission is to support and connect individuals of all identities, backgrounds or circumstances, who have experienced the trauma around miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal loss, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), or infertility. They offer many no-cost pathways to healing including a help line, peer support, mental health sessions, and somatic therapies. As well hold an affirming space for all people regardless of faith, ethnicities, cultures, abilities, socio-economic status, sexual orientations and gender identities.
Let us know! We want to hear from you and see if we can work together to make some magic happen!
