Advice-A-thon is our annual fundraising event, which highlights the ways in which CLG assists people in our Evening Legal Clinic and our ID Clinics. This year’s event is taking place on Saturday September 28, 2019, at City Hall, where lawyers from Calgary will provide up to 30 minutes of free legal help to the general public for the entire day. Similar to a ‘walk-a-thon,’ participating lawyers also raise fundraising pledges in support of the CLG.
In 2018, CLG held its second annual Advice-A-Thon event at City Hall. This was an all-day event for the public, that went from 10:00AM to 4:00PM. Although it was a chilly day and activities were moved inside, we were still able to provide free legal advice and identification to many people from Calgary and surrounding regions. Any day that we can provide legal help and identification to those who are in need is a great day in our books, but on this day we saw over 100 people!
CLG acknowledges that this event could not have taken place without the kindness and support of all of our sponsors, donors, and volunteers. For all of your help and support we are sincerely thankful!!
