The CBC Calgary Food Bank Drive wraps up this Friday, after a 22 day push toward a $1 million fundraising goal. Join us for one of this week's events and help us fill every plate this holiday season. 

One Gray Knight Coffee Sales: Monday, Dec. 18

Join us for the first ever nighttime sale of One Gray Knight coffee. Angela Knight of The Calgary Eyeopener will be at Analog Coffee at Southcentre Mall, starting at 6pm and until supplies last. Last year, our stash went quickly, so you might want to come early!

Angela Knight knows you need coffee to get through the final push to the holidays, so she's making it available two days in a row! You can pick yours up at Peloton Computer Enterprises (1000 - 7 Ave SW), a member of YYC Tech Gives, Tuesday morning 7 - 8:30 a.m.

Blitz Day: Thursday, Dec. 21

Blitz Day 2016 was so much fun, we've decided to do it again. This year's Blitz Day will take place at CBC Calgary's new location in Parkdale on Dec. 21.

It's the most wonderful day of the year! Join us for a full day celebration as we push toward our goal of raising $1M for the Calgary Food Bank.

Bring your food or monetary donation to our new location (1000 Veteran's Place N.W.) and stay for:

  • A live broadcast of The Calgary Eyeopener, 6-8:30 a.m. 
  • Your final chance to get your hands on One Gray Knight coffee! Sales start at 6 a.m. and never last long
  • Santa Claus will be in the house 6-9 a.m.
  • Check out our new space! We will be offering tours of our new studios on the hour from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m
  • The Homestretch will be broadcasting live from the lobby 3-6 p.m.

Free parking will be available for the entire day in the surface lot west of the building. Hope to see you there!
