10th Anniversary Jamboree for Charity

June 4, 2022

Craig Senyk Initiatives is proud to present our 10th Anniversary Jamboree for Charity! Get duded up in your best Western garb and help us celebrate as we bring you two nights of some of Canada’s top country music and one heck of a lot of fun.

On Saturday, June 4th, we will celebrate our 10th anniversary in our usual style (plus a few extras) with live performances, dance lessons, a silent auction, delectable food stations and more. Hosted by Brandi Sidoryk and Katie Rox from Nice Horse, the event will be headlined by Terri Clark, with special guests High Valley, Michelle Wright, and Kyle McKearney. While there is no cost to attend this high-energy evening, we we invite you to donate generously to our beneficiary charity.

Sponsored by Mawer Investment Management, all proceeds from this year’s Jamboree will go to support I Can for Kids, and their mission to provide nourishing food to Calgary’s food-insecure children.


On night one of festivities, Friday, June 3rd, we will kick off the weekend with our Blue Jay Sessions with an all-acoustic songwriters’ circle. Featuring eight great performers in two sessions, this event is open to invited guests only. There will be a cash bar, food for purchase, and a 50/50 draw for guests – all proceeds going directly to I Can for Kids. Register early as this intimate evening has a capacity of only 100 guests!

DOORS OPEN: 6:00 pm 

FIRST SESSION: 7:00 pm  Featuring Alex Hughes, Matt Blais, Ashley Ghostkeeper and Taylor-Rae

SECOND SESSION: 8:30 pm  Featuring  Mariya Stokes, Ryan Lindsay, Shantaia, ZENON


One of every six children in Calgary is food insecure. I Can for Kids partners with 25 frontline social service agencies to empower food-insecure children and families with dignified and evidence-based options to purchase the food that meets their unique health and cultural needs. Each year, I Can for Kids gives hope to thousands of children and families for a life filled with potential, discovery, connection, and meaning.
