For the past couple months I have been working with the local classic car club, Rolling Sculptures, to help them put on their annual summer car show here in Canmore. This year Sheepdog Lodge will be the benefactor of this event, with small donations going to a children’s charity, and the food bank. We are hoping to raise $13,000-$15,000. This would cover the cost to run the lodge itself for 1 year. The car club executive has an even loftier goal of $25,000, This would be 2 years that the lodge would be guaranteed to stay open! Just from 1 event/1 day here in Canmore could keep Sheepdog Lodge open and running for 2 years. Crazy!!
So in order to make this happen Sheepdog Lodge needs your help!
We need help the day of the event Saturday, August 12th. We are planning a BBQ to sell hamburgers, hotdogs, chips, pop, etc. ATCO has donated a 6′ BBQ and a tent to use. We will have a Silent Auction that we need several people to assist bidders/security of the items. We need help selling 50/50 tickets during the event. We will need help with setup and teardown of some tents and the cooking area. We will take any help we can get. This is a family event so your kids are more than welcome to come!
If you could please mark this day on your calendar and come out even for a couple hours it would make all the difference.
If you want to help but can’t make it on Saturday, August 12th we do need lots of help prior to the event. We will be heading out to canvas local businesses for donations, silent auction items, and to sell ads in the local papers (selling one full page of ads brings in $600 donation for Sheepdog Lodge!). So if you have a business or manage one, please think about helping advertise with Sheepdog Lodge.
If you are friends with a local business owner please approach them on our behalf for a donation or a silent auction item. It’s better this way than a cold call. Then just get in touch with me.
It’s going to be a really fun family event with some really amazing cars and motorcycles on display.
One last thing…Please share this poster with your friends on social media for us to help spread the word!
