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!

  • If you’re looking for ways to give back this holiday season, I recommend donating your time to @SantasAnonymous! 🎅🏻 They need volunteers to sort, wrap and deliver toys for Edmonton kids in need up to their Delivery Weekend (Dec 16/17). Thanks @britl for organizing her annual #yegwrap volunteer party. It’s something I look forward to each year! It doesn’t take much of your time to help make a family’s Christmas merrier.🎄

  • Keeping warm tonight with homemade Budae Jjigae: Korean “army stew!” 🍜 It’s my favourite Korean soup with spicy broth, spam (😍), tofu, mushrooms, noodles, kimchi, onions, hot dogs and sausage. Typically comes with beans but I don’t like beans so. 💁🏻‍♀️ Love eating this with rice too!
(Soup🍜 + rice 🍚 = life).

  • Brunch two days in a row? OK. 😊😊😊😊 Today’s brunch was at the new @pip_yeg in @oldstrathcona. Avocado toast & eggs benny get four thumbs up over here! 👍🏻 Farmer’s breakfast & french toast were good but not favourites.

  • Soup is my most comforting of comfort foods but I’m also totally comforted with any potatoes. 🤤🙏🏻 like the fried potatoes from @tzin104 - They are packed with flavour - garlic, onions, smoked paprika salt, with “angry” aioli. 😍 (While at Tzin, you also NEED to try chef @corndoghatfire’s bacon dish). What’s your go-to comfort food?? 🍽
