Because community spirit can’t be cancelled, CPRS Calgary is going to hold our own virtual Stampede Breakfast on Friday, July 10, 8:30 a.m.- 9:30 a.m.
Building on the success of PR by the Pint, we’re going to deliver a Stampede breakfast complete with pancake mix, syrup, prosecco and orange juice. So whip up some pancakes, mix up your beverage, and join us for a candid discussion with Kristina Barnes, Manager of Communications and Media Relations from the Calgary Stampede.
Kristina is going to take us behind the scenes to share insights into how the Calgary Stampede faced the difficult decision to cancel the city’s 108-year tradition in light of COVID-19, and how they rallied their legion of volunteers to carry out their mandate to preserve and celebrate our western heritage, culture and community spirit. From announcing a Parade Marshal when there’s no parade to a series of drive-thru events to ensure Calgarians can still get their mini-donut fix, the Calgary Stampede has once again shown its resilience in the face of crisis.
So, dust off your hat, don your favourite western wear and help us celebrate Stampede 2020 in a special way.
