In June of this year, devastating flood waters ripped through Calgary, Alberta Canada. Many families were forced to flee the area, only to return to homes that were too moldy and structurally damaged to save. Since that day, Mike has been a public advocate for the people of Calgary who were affected by the flood. He's been doing what he can to raise awareness, raise money, and raise people's spirits, always emphasizing hope that the situation will get better and the patience needed for things to be done right.
On October 1, 2013, Mike Holmes will continue to lend his support to the people of Calgary by attending the Building Resistance with Mike Holmes event, sponsored by the Insurance Bureau of Canada, during which people are invited to ask their questions pertaining to renovation and how to increase their home's resistance to future severe storms. The event is being held at the TELUS Convention Centre, located at 120 9 Avenue SE in Calgary from 7-9PM. You must register by phone or online to attend the event.
