A huge thank you for the generosity of our major sponsors: Servus Credit Union, Dawn Foods,Lindt & Sprüngli and Urban Impact.

Thank you to supporting sponsors and donations from Pacific Wine & Spirits, Worldwide Specialty Foods, Wild Rose Brewery, Village Brewery, and Unicom Graphics. Thank you to 101.5 KOOL FM, City Style and Living, In Touch News, and Bakers Journal for your coverage.

And most of all, thank you to the Calgary & area dessert-loving guests for joining us in this cause. This event would not be possible without your support and involvement.
