What is 'Put The Boots To Hunger'?
About The Boots
BD&P's Put The Boots To Hunger is a campaign partnership between Burnet, Duckworth, & Palmer LLP and the Calgary Food Bank to raise food and funds through the Stampede season. July and August are typically a slow season for donations and this campaign provides us with a solid supply of food for our clients, and funds that will help us through until Christmas.
BD&P purchases a chuckwagon tarp and donates it to the Calgary Food Bank to use in a fundraising initiative where sponsors purchase the tarp for use on one of the 10 days of Stampede. Our 2014 chuckwagon driver for this year is the ever-amazing Jordie Fike, considered one of the industry's rising stars. Jordie placed 11th overall in 2012 world standings and is the fourth driver in WPCA history to quality for the Calgary Stampede Rangeland Derby in his rookie year.
Along with the funds raised from the tarp initiative, over 60 community partners host pancake breakfasts and BBQ's that raise food and money for the Calgary Food Bank. Last year, over $500,000 was raised and the campaign is now in its seventh year. Visit CalgaryFoodBank.com for more information!!
