March Fundraiser Event: 

Our goal is to sell 100 tickets and raise $10,000 to purchase new underwear for The Mustard Seed.

Tickets - $100 + GST per person only 100 tickets available 
Date And Time - TBD 
Location - Poolside by Hotel Arts

We’re all about pooling our talents and resources for a great cause. Join us at Hotel Arts for a fabulous poolside party in support of The Mustard Seed.

Why? The Mustard Seed urgently needs new underwear. It’s the first thing we put on in the morning, but most of us take these basic necessities for granted. We want to make waves by gathering local business owners and community-driven individuals to provide Mustard Seed guests with dignity and self-esteem.

100% of your ticket price goes towards the purchase of new underwear. This is possible thanks to our amazing sponsors. Let's get together, raise funds for a much-needed cause, make new connections, and have a wicked poolside party that people will be buzzing about for weeks.

There will be donation bins at the event to drop off new underwear for both men and women. Feel free to get in the spirit and wear your best undergarments poolside! (Just kidding, but swimsuits are welcome). We’ll supply the towels.

What's included with your ticket

Hors d'oeuvres & one free drink. Bar service is available to keep the party going. Live music and a private pool party! (what more do you need?)

*Please note: Tickets are non-refundable. Special room rates are available for those who wish to stay at Hotel Arts.

Can’t attend? Drop off new underwear at the Forward Level Marketing office, located at 502 - 326 11 Ave SW, Calgary, AB, T2R 0C5, from now until April 1. We’ll ensure it gets to The Mustard Seed.

About The Mustard Seed

The Mustard Seed has been serving people experiencing poverty and homelessness in Alberta since the ‘80s. It has become a haven for those needing help, and right now they are experiencing a shortage of new underwear for men and women. The first layer of protection during these cold winter months is a new set of underwear, and your support helps our clients make a fresh start. When you’re looking to make an impact, it’s what underneath that counts the most.

Do I have to wear my underwear out in public for this event? I’m kind of shy.

No. Wear whatever makes you happy and comfortable! This party is all about having a good time while supporting a great cause.

Am I expected to swim or go in the pool?

Only if you want to! Wearing a swimsuit is entirely up to you. We’ll supply the towels if you decide to take a dip.

Isn’t it a little cold for a pool party?

It may be winter on the outside, but it’s summer on the inside. We’ll be comfy and cozy inside the balmy confines of Hotel Arts. They have an amazing covered pool that is fully insulated. No jacket required.

What’s this party all about?

Move Forward YYC is determined to raise $10,000 for The Mustard Seed, ensuring guests can be provided with new underwear. We’d love it if you could help us reach our goal.

Sounds fun! What should I bring?

Other than your fabulous fun-loving, community-minded attitude, we’d appreciate a donation of new underwear. We’ll have donation bins set up for easy drop-off. 

What if I can’t attend? Can I still donate?

You sure can! Feel free to drop off new underwear at Forward Level Marketing. We’ll make sure it gets to our friends at The Mustard Seed.
