THANK YOU to everyone who participated in our 7th Annual Holiday Food Drive and attended our Client Appreciation Holiday Party! Once again, we are blown away by the generosity and giving spirit of our clients! Despite challenging economic times and record inflation rates, so many of you have shown us your willingness to give back even when times are tough. For that, we are so thankful. We set our goal at $10,000 this year, and we're happy to say we far exceeded it!
We are excited to announce we raised a total of $13,990 - PLUS - 250lbs of food that went directly to The Calgary Food Bank!
Because of the Food Bank's unique buying power, up to $69,950 of goods and supplies will be going to help Calgarians in need this holiday season.
If you missed the chance to donate, the Calgary Food Bank always accepts donations! Check out their website for more information.
Another annual tradition we enjoy is giving a Shop Local Gift Basket to one lucky donor! Everyone who donated was entered to win a gift basket filled with goodies from small, local businesses around Calgary. This year's winner was Joseph H. - congratulations, and enjoy the treats!
This year also saw the return of our Client Appreciation Holiday Party! After a 2-year hiatus, we were ready to party, and so were our clients. Close to 300 attendees enjoyed complimentary holiday family portraits, photos with Santa (the real one!), holiday cocktails, cookie decorating, Santa's craft workshop, and delicious food! It was so nice to see all the familiar faces after so many years, and we hope everyone had as great of a time as we did. Thank you to all who attended!
Special thank you goes to:

Glamorgan Bakery - for special cookie decorating kits
