Finalist for Outstanding Fundraising Event at the 2018 Edmonton Event Awards!

Decadent appetizers, entertainment, silent auction and the reveal of our Women in Aviation calendar photos. The calendar features professional photographs of real women in aviation and is a great way for us to raise money for a worthy cause while showcasing career opportunities available to women!

This event pays tribute to the inspirational women featured in our 2019 Elevate Women in Aviation Calendar. Each and every one of these women are employed in aviation as pilots, flight attendants, air traffic controllers, aircraft mechanics and even military members. This industry is dominated by males, leaving women feeling as though aviation is not an option. These strong women have broken down barriers to achieve their professional goals and we want to give them the attention they deserve! We will introduce each of them, briefly sharing their stories as well as revealing the beautiful calendar photographs by award-winning Donna Lynn Photography!

This year’s event is guaranteed to impress. The evening is packed with entertainment and inspiration. We are pleased to be recognizing the accomplishments of our 12 diverse women, while raising funds to support our mentorship and bursary program which sets more women up for successful careers in the industry.
