Attention: Assignment Editor, Business/Financial Editor, City Editor, Food/Beverage Editor, News Editor CALGARY, ALBERTA, MEDIA ADVISORY--(Marketwire - Dec. 5, 2007) - The Calgary Flames announced today an agreement with Good Earth Cafes Ltd, a Calgary based coffee company, as the exclusive coffee supplier available for patrons at the Pengrowth Saddledome.

"In our continuing goal to bring quality products to the fan experience we are pleased to welcome Good Earth Cafes to the Pengrowth Saddledome," said Flames Vice President of Marketing Jim Bagshaw. "We are very excited to be associated with Good Earth, a Calgary company that takes pride in its high quality products. We are also extremely proud to be able to offer Good Earth products to our fans."

Good Earth Cafes will have two locations on the concourse of the Pengrowth Saddledome offering high-quality gourmet coffee and wholesome desserts for hockey fans attending Calgary Flames games. Additionally, Good Earth coffee will be available throughout the Saddledome. Good Earth Cafes will also be available for Calgary Hitmen games as well as other events at the multi purpose entertainment facility. The former coffee supplier to the Saddledome decided several months ago to end their relationship as concessionaires with the Calgary Flames.

"We are delighted to partner with such a high-caliber organization as the Flames," said Michael Going, President & Co-Founder of Good Earth Cafes Ltd. "Both the Flames and Good Earth strive to be respected locally owned and operated organizations, offering high quality, authentic experiences to our clientele. We are looking forward to bringing our great coffee and fresh baked goods to the Saddledome and Flames fans!"

"We are especially looking forward to working with the Flames organization on community outreach projects," continued Going. "We have long recognized this is an essential element of who we are as a business. It is exciting to partner with an organization that sees the importance of serving our community."
