Presented by Apache Canada Ltd., in partnership with the Calgary Stampeder Football Club, this inspiring event draws several hundred of Calgary’s most engaged corporate citizens, and in 2017 we had much to celebrate!

This was the 25th year the event will raise funds for CUPS programming while “kicking off” the 2017 Stampeder football season. We met many of the current players while also reflecting back on the 1992 Grey Cup win that snapped a 21-year title drought, with many of the alumni from that squad in the room.

The community partnership of the Calgary Stampeders, Apache Canada, CUPS and our guests is integral to CUPS to help adults and families in Calgary living with the adversity of poverty and trauma to become self-sufficient. Proceeds from this event allows us to say “yes” to helping more vulnerable children, families and adults attain brighter futures by providing integrated services across health, education and housing programs.
