It’s our favourite number—help us with one last push this weekend to make $6000 towards our new patio!
Thanks so much to everyone who has already contributed—it means so much to us. And, if you are interested in continuing to support us as we approach our 40th anniversary this fall, check out our Circle of Friends program and get in touch!
This week is your last chance to contribute to our Patio fundraising campaign—we’re excited to put the deck together in time for our first patio on June 13! Help us out with a contribution today.

We’ve been amazed with the reception to our Patio construction fundraising campaign—not even halfway through, and we’ve already passed $3000. Here’s an update from Tyler about what we’ll be able to do if we reach $6000—from levelling the entrance area just beside the patio, to providing for our kitchen and bar, to making sure the patio deck is inviting and beautiful, we’re excited for the next stage of the process. Thank you!
Meanwhile, we’re making plans to start the deck construction soon. Mark your calendar for the first Patio on June 13!
Help us out by continuing to support the patio’s development.
Thanks to your amazing generosity, we’ve already passed our initial goal for our patio-construction funding drive—and we’re working on an update to let you know exactly how our plans are going. Thanks for continuing to donate, and we’re looking forward to seeing you all for the first patio in June!
Like many charities in Alberta, we rely on volunteers helping us to bingo and casino days throughout the the year—today a great team of volunteers is at the casino, which will help us with rent and operating expenses over the next 18 months.
We’re looking for a few friends to help us out with a bingo day on January 18, from 10:15–3:30 and 4:15 to 9:30 at Fort Road Bingo. As well as the usual included meal, we’d love to invite our fundraising volunteers to the upcoming Parka Patio for free. Bingos provide essential funding for Latitude’s operating costs—including Edmonton-centred programming like our Writer in Residence. So why not start out the new year by helping make sure these programs continue?
If you’re interested, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know—and even if you can’t make the 18th, let us know if you want to help with the rest of our bingo days throughout the year!
We know that some of you are looking forward to the return of the Parka Patio this year—the continuation of a new winter tradition in our new location. We’re in need of a few more volunteers for our next fundraising Bingo December 17th from 10:15 to 3:30pm and 4:15 to 9:30pm and would love to offer a free Parka Patio ticket as thanks. Contact Joanne at email@example.com for details.
That’s right: we’ve marked the date for The Fine Art of Schmoozy, our annual winter fundraising gala, for December 3rd this year, and tickets are now on sale at www.latitude53.org/schmoozy at a special advance price of $25 during the month of October. We’ll have lots of previews during the run-up, but: don’t you want to hang with those foxes? Thanks to Mariya Karpenko for the amazing illustration.
