As we wrap up this year's Made in Western Canada edition of our Friends and Family BBQ, we wanted to take a moment to say Thank You for attending.  It means a great deal to us to be able to celebrate in an atmosphere of genuine appreciation for our clients, their families and ours, and our community.  We changed things up a bit this year and the response was overwhelming.

In bringing out local vendors and clubs we made some new friends along the way and were proud to promote some amazing local entrepreneurs and talents in everything from handcrafted beverages, local food, talented coaches sharing Canada's National Sport and enthusiasts for the incredibly cool technology behind the exhibition of drone racing.  If you would like to learn more about any of the vendors we had on site, check out or Facebook page or for questions.

For over a decade now we have worked with the Calgary Food Bank to ensure that donations received at this event helps the local community.  Few organizations have the uplift (turning $1 donated into over $5 worth of food that can be distributed) and the incredible staff and volunteers that the FoodBank has.  They are truly willing to partner with organizations on events and fundraising.  We hope you had the opportunity to learn a bit about their local Fresh Produce initiative through Broxburn Farms.  Thanks to your support we raised over $5200 which YYC Tech Gives will donate to this program.

We hope you enjoyed the day!  Check out pictures and videos:
