Calgary Celebrity Hors D’oeuvres

We’re please to share our recent participation in the Alberta Theatre Projects annual Celebrity Hors D’oeuvres event. This fundraiser included a top cook off between local chefs and talent as well as a variety of fantastic prizes donated by local talent ranging from a lunch with Dragon’s Den Brett Wilson, to your own Calgary named street sign and of course, yours truly donating a entire branding package including logo, business cards and stationary! We’re thrilled to give back to the Calgary community especially as it’s given us so much, and we’re excited to start a new project with a member of the theatre community in the not-to-distant future.
