Kids Up Front and Center at the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth!

11 Jul Kids Up Front and Center at the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth!

The 2019 Calgary Stampede kicked off in super VIP style for some of our kids! Greg Mould with Excel Projects offered an amazing group of our youngsters a private suite at the rodeo, giving them their first up close rodeo experience! It was an amazing opportunity for our kids to feel a part of the action and see the sights and sounds of the Calgary Stampede from VIP seating.

Jeff Pugh was our very attentive host, ensuring the kids were fed and well hydrated for the rodeo, the barn tour, the “meet and greet” with the horses, and the chuckwagon races. Thank you, Jeff, for welcoming us so warmly! The kids got to meet professional chuckwagon driver Evan Salmond and learn about the sport firsthand, an incredible opportunity for them.

The night was complete with the Grandstand Show and fireworks display. 

Thank you to Greg and Excel Projects for making rodeo dreams come true in high style – we appreciate your support!

Kids Up Front is also fortunate to work with the Young Riders program and the Calgary Stampede to send hundreds of deserving kids to the Calgary Stampede, exposing them to the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth, our western heritage, the excitement and thrill of the midway, shows, music and explore delicious food options. We wish to give Blakes and Dentons a big Yahoo for making this possible for our kids every year!

What an incredible beginning to the Stampede week; there is a lot more to come!
