Let the Calgary Stampede begin!

Okay, actually it is still one more sleep away, but that doesn’t mean the big parties can’t start a wee bit early!

Last night, Rogers kicked off the Stampede season with the annual Chomp and Stomp campaign!  All the money raised will go to Kids Cancer Care

Foundation of Alberta.  The goal for the night was to raise more than $100,000 and while we are still waiting to hear the final total, before the night was even over, I heard rumors of the total being well beyond their initial goal!

The big party was hosted by Breakfast Television’s Jill Belland and Eric from Jack FM. The whole night was a blast. It was an amazing mix of rodeo, music, dancing and food.  Actually, lots and lots of food.

One of the evening’s highlights was when six year old cancer survivor Olivia and her four year old sister Giselle sang the national anthem.  It kinda just reminded everyone why they were there!

If you still want to help out, you can text “KIDS” to 4825 to donate $5 to KCCFA.

Hosts for the night,Jill and Eric.
A rodeo clown gets out of the way!

I got a little too close to this bull, luckily my friend Tricia pulled me back at the last second.
Three bulls didn’t want to go into their pens and ended up making a little bit of a show themselves!

Take a good look at this cowboy shirt, I’ll be wearing it for the next two weeks!
