Feast on lobster to support students


Join us for Mount Royal University's 17th annual Pearls of Wisdom, the best down-home crackin' lobsterfest in the west. Pearls of Wisdom is proud to be presented in partnership with RBC Royal Bank for the 8th year.

The dress is business casual or cocktail attire, the entertainment is lively and the down-home menu features fresh lobster and oysters. ~ We're boiling enough for a schooner's crew b'y! ~

Sheldon Kennedy — Honorary Chair Pearls of Wisdom 2014

Proceeds from Pearls of Wisdom 2014 go towards Mount Royal's two new degrees; Bachelor of Health and Physical Education (BHPE) and the Bachelor of Child Studies (BCST). Kennedy’s passion for sport and dedication to child advocacy make him a natural fit as Honorary Chair.

He is an outspoken champion for violence and abuse prevention programs across North America and Board Member of The Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre, here in Calgary. Kennedy is co-founder of Respect Group, who, along with Hockey Calgary and the Mount Royal University department of Physical Education and Recreation, worked collaboratively on a three year research project studying outcomes from the mandatory “Respect in Sport” program implemented in 2010 for all Hockey Calgary parents.
