The Grande Prairie Friendship Centre has been empowering, engaging, and celebrating leaders across the Indigenous communities of our region for close to six decades. The Centre has been a constant force of both activism and guidance, bringing both fixed programs and countless new Initiatives to help meet the ambitious goal of ensuring the complete needs of Indigenous residents in both urban
and traditional environments while inspiring understanding, awareness, and wisdom
in the face of cultural differences.
GRANDE GATHERING GALA
The inaugural Grande Gathering Gala, 2022, was an incredible night culminating in over $130,000 put back into the Grande Prairie Friendship Centre community programming.
The 2nd Annual Grande Gathering Gala will feature Indigenous Entertainers and a 3-course dinner that promises a night full of fun and dancing in support of the Grande Prairie Friendship Centre. The night includes a live artist, live and silent auction and fun raffle prizes.
Your support through this initiative means we can continue to provide over 7,000 meals a month, provide connections and resources to young families, promote culture-centred education, prevent housing loss, promote positive health outcomes, and most of all, do what we do best: support our community by keeping the needs and gifts of our Indigenous communities front and Centre.
It is an opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate how far we have come
and stand with one another as we take a step forward on this journey to reconciliation.
