Tomorrow afternoon, Richard Loat of Canucks Hockey Blog and his crew of good-hearted hockey fans stop off in downtown Calgary to play a game of street hockey on Stephen Avenue and collect donations for the Calgary Interfaith Food Bank through Five Hole For Food, a charitable effort that began last summer which has now become an annual event. After yesterday's game in Winnipeg, FHFF has already collected 19,253 pounds of food, and aims to hit 20,000 before the tour ends in Vancouver on July 9th.
The game will take place at noon just outside of Flames Central, with the only requirements for participation being a hockey stick and a non-perishable food donation to the Food Bank. You may even get to meet a few of your favourite Flames players (or at the very least, Harvey the Hound), and of course, join Richard and company at Boston PIzza on 17th Avenue for a celebratory post-game brew!
So if you're free tomorrow or even on your lunch break, head down to Stephen Avenue and play some hockey for a good cause. It should be a beautiful day and hopefully the Flames blogosphere will be well represented!
