Laugh with Us

Join us on June 10th for our second annual Laughs Over Lunch (LOL) virtual fundraiser.

LOL will feature a live improv show by Rapid Fire Theatre – Edmonton’s premiere improv group. Enjoy uplifting entertainment while helping to raise $150,000 to support the complex needs of teen parents through Terra’s innovative programs and services.

Kick-off Celebration

Laughs Over Lunch 2021 will kick-off Terra’s 50th anniversary! For five decades, Terra has been empowering teen parents to succeed by offering free, non-judgmental support to young moms and dads who want more for their children. Those services and supports have evolved with the changing needs of the young families we serve and will continue to change alongside the needs of our community.

We look forward knowing that we need to stay innovative and adaptable to continue meeting the complex needs of teen parents and their children. With your support we can plan for the future while being responsive to the needs of today.

Join us June 10 to hear what we have planned for this special milestone!
