Food Giveaways

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!

    Followed all accounts & liked all pages!
    You know how to find me :)

    Thanks for the giveaway, Linda!

  • There are soooo many beautiful #InstagrammableWalls in Calgary! This one (called #BeCubed) is a popular #yyc photo spot. 📸 Having fun exploring the city with our friends @kathytrinhle, @big_mitchy16, and of course @mikethyking, who has been a great #InstagramHusband. 💕 Also nice to meet @worth_y, who shared a lot of great wall spots with us!! Watch my blog this week for a Guide to #IGWallsofYYC! #capturecalgary 🤗

  • My favourite appetizer at the new @thebutternuttree is their Grilled Bannock topped with wild mushrooms, berries, pumpkin seeds and "winged kelp." 🤗 It was delicious! The Broccoli with crispy pork belly and leek ash coated duck egg (check my IG Story for #yolkporn!) was also excellent. Beautiful plates and beautiful views at this restaurant too (high ceiling windows all over). We had a lovely dinner last night at the #yegmedia event in a private room with #yegfood friends! Pricing wise- appetizers at #TheButternutTree are $13-$19, entrees are $28-$44, so it would make for a bit pricier a night out but you'll find a lot of unique ingredients here. You can tell lots of care is going into these dishes. Congrats on your opening Chef Downey & team! And thanks @bonafidemediapr for inviting us to check it out. #MeetatTBT ☺️

  • Still one of my favourite sushis in the city. 💕 The pressed wild salmon sushi from @izakayadorinku is 💯! 🙌🏻 Had a fun night in @oldstrathcona with @mikethyking & @amandy_jb. Before this we got to meet John Rhys-Davies (#Gimli from #LOTR!) at the #EdmontonExpo #yegmedia party. @EdmontonExpoOfficial runs this weekend!
Check it out!! ☺️

  • My favourite person to get my #yegseglegs with! 👫@mikethyking & I killed it (if I do say so myself 😌) on @rivervalleyadventureyeg's segways yesterday while filming for @travelalberta's "Edmonton on Wheels" promo video! 💕 I actually wish I could segway as a primary means of transportation, it's so fun/easy (and you can end up going so fast it's thrilling! 💨)

  • Sunday Funday! 💕 Today we went on the 15-passenger @urbanpedaltours bike through @oldstrathcona with @travelalberta! We stopped at @elcortezyeg (for chips, salsa & guac 😍), @maltandmortar, and @situationbeer before renting segways & bikes from @rivervalleyadventureyeg! It was a pretty wicked day exploring Edmonton on wheels. I can't wait to see the video (not airing until next spring lol). I LOVE segways!! #yegseglegs 🤗 See more from the day in my Insta Stories!

  • Thanks to the nearly 40 people who came out on the fourth Instagrammable Walls of Edmonton photo walk (#IGWallsofYEG) with me & @britl today! 💕😊📸 20 walls and 7 km later, safe to say we explored the heck out of Edmonton. 😅 I'm excited to head to Calgary next weekend with @mikethyking & @tourismcalgary to help map out their most #instagrammablewalls! If you've got #yyc wall suggestions, please let me know. (We'll be crowdsourcing all week! 📸)

  • New Blog Post! ✨ I recap the 20 places @mikethyking and I ate during our recent trip to Toronto including the terrific @Lee_Restaurant, where we had Peking & Char Sui Duck Breast wraps. Delicious. 💯👌🏻 Read "Where To Eat in Toronto" at the link in my bio and thanks everyone for your food suggestions! Wish I could've gotten to them all. 🤤
