    Please post if you can make this event. If you have a costume please wear it.
    We are looking at maybe a 1pm time slot. I need numbers by Thursday Nov 25 at the latest.
    We should easily be able to bring tons of food or everybody make a cash donation of $5-10 each.


    Here is some info on this event.

    Help Citytv feed 2390 families!

    This year Citytv is looking to reach our $275,000 target and help the Calgary Interfaith Food Bank feed 2390 families of four.

    Citytv will be broadcasting live from the Sobeys in Riverbend and the Sobeys in Royal Oak between Noon and 6 p.m. on December 3rd.

    ? Ted Henley
    ? Susanne Fox
    ? Dave Kelly ? Tara McCool
    ? Michele McDougall
    ? Jeff Valin ? CJAY 92
    ? VIBE 98.5
    ? AM 1060

    Come out and help by making a donation and record a greeting that will air on Citytv and be posted online at www.citytv.com.

    Last year, Fame for Food in Calgary raised $242,000 in cash and food donations.
    It takes a lot to feed a family of four for one week; $115 or 55 lbs of food to be precise. If you are bringing non-perishables, the following items are the most needed items at the food bank and can be used as a guide:

    ? Processed Cheese Spread
    ? Jam
    ? Canned Fruit
    ? Canned Vegetables
    ? Peanut Butter
    ? Baby Formula
    ? Tomatoes
    ? Spaghetti Sauce
    ? Beans
    ? Cereal
    ? Canned Fish

    We will accept cash donations and non-perishable food items in exchange for recording your season greeting between Noon and 6pm.

    I think the idea of this is that Ryan needs NUMBERS. Not "Probably"s or "maybe"s.

    I understand if people have other commitments, but if you don't have anything that for sure will keep you out of this (like work or a previous commitment), please COMMIT to being there. If anyone needs a ride (from anywhere in the city), Kent and I can come pick you up. We have room for three.

    Also, costumes are cool, but not necessary. The idea behind this is to have a good representation of the Fan Force, and that means people both IN costume and OUT of costume. We want to show off in front of all of Calgary, so come out and be seen (and bring food for the Food Bank!!!).

    Veritate, since you two are offering rides, would I be able to go with you from lightsabre class? That might be easier than going back to UofC on time for Ryan to pick me up. Thanks.

    Sorry I didn't respond earlier - things were up in the air for a little while there. But now I can say that I can come too.

    Mr. Smith, however, will be remaining anonymous :). I guess he has enough Fame already.
