This concert will feature the talents of singers and musicians of different faiths from across Calgary and raise funds to support families through Habitat for Humanity.
This event will mark the completion of the Interfaith Build Project, which began in 2015 with a goal of raising $1M to help 10 families buy their own home and build long-term stability through Habitat for Humanity.
Since then, this initiative has raised more than $840,000 of their ambitious goal. This event is a celebration of the collective impact these faith groups have had and is where the final announcement of the campaign's achievements will be made.
Steve Olson will be the evening's emcee and opening remarks will be made by Rabbi Shaul Osadchey and Bishop Greg Kerr-Wilson, Co-Chairs of the Interfaith Build Project.
There is no charge to reserve seats for this concert, but we invite all attendees to make a generous donation to Habitat for Humanity. Donations to reserve seats will be accepted after March 1.

Many families are working hard to provide for their children, but are facing struggles from high rents and poor living conditions.
The consequences of housing instability and paying too high a proportion of family income on rent are significant, particularly for developing children. These families often feel powerless to change their situation.
Your donation will help working families by assisting with the costs of construction of a Habitat home as part of the Interfaith Build Project.
Habitat homes are then purchased by families through an affordable, no-down-payment, no-interest mortgage, with monthly payments that are set toward their income level.
This gives families the financial flexibility and stability to make positive, forward-looking choices for their children.
