In case you missed it, we’re playing street hockey today and you’re invited to come out and support a good cause.
Calgary set the single-city record last year, but we have some serious work to do if we’re going to do it again. The amount of food raised in each city this year has been exponentially higher and the new record is a much bigger number. With 4,635 lbs raised in Ottawa, we’ll need to see a major commitment from the people of Calgary. Really though, as long as we raise more than Edmonton and Vancouver, I’ll be happy.
I’ve been watching the team as they have been crossing the country and as we ramp up to the Calgary event, I’ve been looking at the chatter on Twitter to see what’s going to happen. Last night, we started seeing photos on Twitter showing the food that people are bringing to the event. Despite a Tuesday afternoon game, it looks like the turnout will be even bigger this year.
If you are one of those who can’t come down to Stephen Avenue between noon and 4pm, you can donate money online to support the cause. It all adds up and hopefully we will be able to help the FHFF team surpass their goal of 20,000 lb of food raised this year.
The weather is going to be great, so bring your favourite Flames jersey, your stick and be ready for some fun in the sun. If you still need some motivation to come out, check out this quick video from last year’s Five Hole For Food event.
