The Calgary Homeless Foundation Kicks off their Boots for the Second Annual Boots Boas ‘N Bingo Fundraiser

May 14, 2008

(Calgary, AB)Polish off your belt buckle, lasso your posse and join the Calgary Homeless Foundation for its Second Annual Boots Boas ‘N Bingo!  On May 15th, the Palomino room at the Stampede grounds will be overtaken by cowboys, cowgirls, and their respective weapons - bingo daubers- for 7 lightening rounds of bingo, a gourmet dinner, and live and silent auction.


“This is the second year of the event; last year was such a success.  It is a great way to raise money for the Calgary Homeless Foundation and the 10 Year Plan to End Homelessness, and it is also an exiting and entertaining event!” says Janet Shostak, Event Chair. “This is a way for Calgarians to get involved and help raise money to end homelessness in our city for good.”


One lucky attendee will walk away the proud new owner of a 2008 Toyota Tundra, donated by Stampede Toyota. As the first fundraiser since the launch of the 10 Year Plan, the support from Corporate Calgary has been outstanding. 


“Our Corporate sponsors and individual supporters have again shown their tremendous support for the Calgary Homeless Foundation,” says Tim Richter, President and CEO of the Calgary Homeless Foundation. “The sponsors and donors of the event have ensured the Second Annual Boots Boas ‘N Bingo will be a memorable one, surpassing support, donations, and dollars raised from last year!”


Boots Boas ‘N Bingo will be held at the Palomino Room in the Roundup Centre at Stampede Park.  The cocktail reception begins at 6:00 pm, followed by dinner and bingo at 7:00 pm.  All proceeds will go to the Calgary Homeless Foundation and the 10 Year Plan to End Homelessness.


The Calgary Homeless Foundation wishes to recognize our presenting Golden Horseshoe sponsor, Hopewell Development Corporation, for their exceptional support of this event.


Founded in 1998, The Calgary Homeless Foundation exists to end homelessness in Calgary
