At Fergus & Bix, we believe it's the communities we're in that makes us great. Because of that, we understand the importance for us to give back and to be actively involved in the communities in which we operate. In 2010 we developed "The Charity Tap" program to do just that. With every sale of our feature beer, we take 50¢ and donate it towards a select local charity or community initiative. Since the program's inception, the Fergus & Bix group of restaurants has contributed over $43,000 towards worthy causes.
Ask almost anyone and they can tell you that cancer has affected their life in one way or another. However, many people diagnosed with or who have a loved one affected by cancer, aren't aware of how to get or offer the support they need when such a difficult and sometimes devastating illness comes into their lives.
Wellspring Calgary is a network of community-based support centres offering programs and services that meet the emotional, social, practical and restorative needs of people living with cancer and those who care for them.
The free programs offered by Wellspring Calgary provide individuals and their loved ones access to information, support, and help teach new ways to cope.
'In Calgary, only Wellspring devotes itself exclusively to the unique non-medical needs that cancer presents. At Wellspring Calgary people with cancer, their families and friends can exchange information, develop a support system and create a sense of hope, in a warm, caring and welcoming atmosphere.'
