Help make history come alive for Calgarians and visitors from around the world! As a Lougheed House volunteer you will also meet new people, learn new skills and be part of a great team.

Casino

We have two casinos booked for December 15 and 16 and we can use your help! This fundraising opportunity will give us about $50K in funding to help with programs, public events, and supplies for Beaulieu Gardens.

This funding is especially crucial as we resume full operations post-pandemic, and plan for what we know will be a great 2023.

We have volunteer shifts available on both days, daytime and evening, at Deerfoot Inn & Casino at 11500 – 35 Street SE. All volunteers will receive a free meal, snacks and drinks.
