Giveaway: Tickets to the 2014 Whyte Avenue Red Shoe Crawl!

Red Shoe Society Logo

Some of you may know I volunteer on the board for a non-profit organization called the Red Shoe Society. We support the families of the Ronald McDonald House by holding events and taking part in the Home For Dinner program. One of the signature events the society puts on is the Red Shoe Crawl. You may remember me tweeting about it in past years! It’s a great event where for the price of your ticket, you get a passport and then “crawl” a certain area to sample food and beverages from various locations. It’s a super fun, delicious day (especially when the weather is great!) and it supports a fantastic cause.

Red Shoe Crawl

From the website:

Enjoy a variety of culinary delights and beverages from some of the best restaurants and shops along Whyte Avenue, all while supporting the families of the Ronald McDonald House Northern Alberta (RMHNA). In past years this event has raised $15,000 to support the families of the Ronald McDonald House!

The next Red Shoe Crawl is on Whyte Avenue/Old Strathcona and takes place next Sunday, June 8, 2014 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. (passport/registration from noon-1 p.m.). Tickets are only $45 and I’ve got a pair to give away!

    Fact: Volunteering at Ronald McDonald House Northern Alberta ‘Home for Dinner’ program is the most fun and inspiring thing a person can do, period!

  • Shevon

    I know that RMH gives families from out of town with sick children a place to stay. I’ve personally volunteered there before in making dinners for them – truly fun and amazing experience.

  • Alexandria Fisher

    A wonderful organization. In 2012, 855 families and 2,505 people stayed at Ronald McDonald House Northern Alberta. I also followed @RedShoeNorthAB and RMHNorthernAB on twitter.

  • Susan c

    Ronald McDonald House Northern Alberta has provided at least a single night’s stay for more than 15,700 families since opening. However, very few families stay for just a single night – the average is 12. I also followed @RedShoeNorthAB and RMHNorthernAB on twitter and facebook and tweeted the sentence. Twiter name: sueandzoe. Thanks Susan susan.a.chimiuk@acs-inc.com

  • Andrea (@littlmissandrea)

    Fact: They were founded in 1985!
    Fun fact: G lives down the street from the RMH here in Edmonton!

    Thanks for the giveaway, Linda!

  • Sunday at the @Cat_Cafe_On_Whyte! 😻💚 My first time back since they opened in April. So happy to see that since then—80 cats have been adopted, they’ve expanded their drinks & pastry menu (and made it unlimited drinks for the hour), added merchandise, and the place was packed! #purrfect

  • Ventured north for handmade pizza 🍕 and pasta 🍝 at @saccomannos1965! Delicious food at really good prices from this family-run business (since 1965!) They just held a grand re-opening in December. Blog post soon! We also discovered a huge fenced in dog park in this area. 🐶 Can’t wait to come back to try more dishes and take the pups to the park. 😊

  • I came for the #Instagrammable Skating Rink. 💕 I think that probably sounds silly, but I do love how “Instagrammable” spaces can encourage people to #ExploreEdmonton! Had a lovely double date at the lovely Victoria Park Oval & Freezeway with @mikethyking, @littlmissandrea & Gordon! ⛸👯‍♀️👯‍♂️

  • Ohhhhh so many feelings. ❤️ I had such an incredible experience watching @traviswall’s @shapingsoundco AND finally meeting Travis! Fun fact: I used to run a fan page for Travis back during his early #SoYouThinkYouCanDance days. He said he used to check the page for updates on himself, lol. 😂❤️ Thank you to the @albertaballetcanada for inviting me to see this phenomenal show with just the most ridiculously talented dancers! 💃🏻🕺 and for asking me to host the pre-show #DanceTalks Q&A. 🤓 Thanks to @nikolevallins for arranging the meet & greet 📸 and thanks to my old friend @jasmine.topham for coming & sharing in the #SYTYCD love! So happy. ❤️

  • When it’s -32C out ☃️, there’s no better food choice. 🍜 I warm right up with my mom’s pho at @KingNoodleHouse! (and you can too! 😉) I’m also excited to share that @KingNoodleHouse is participating in Edmonton’s first-ever #ChinatownDiningWeek! We’re offering a $15 two-course dinner option - your choice of a large bowl of pho + a spring roll & grilled pork balls platter. There are 4 other great restaurants in the area participating too. Learn more on my blog! (link in bio 👩🏻‍💻)

  • I’m such a sucker for eggs on anything—especially on poutine—ESPECIALLY with shoestring skinny fries. 😍 This is The Cure from @centralsocialhall, with red wine gravy, avocado, bacon and a roasted poblano + white cheddar sauce. It’s eggcellent! 🍳🍟😋
