Come join us Saturday, June 3 for some great performances, dance lessons, a silent auction, delectable food stations and more. Hosted by Jens Lindemann, the event will be headlined by Tom Cochrane, with special guests Hailey Benedict, Patricia Conroy and the James Barker Band. 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 Hull Services, and their mission to provide nourishing food to Calgary’s food-insecure children.
