Announcing the Driver for the 2015 Put the Boots to Hunger Campaign

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - March 20, 2015) - The Calgary Food Bank is pleased to announce that their campaign sponsor, Burnet Duckworth & Palmer LLP (BD&P) has secured GMC Rangeland Derby driver, Gary Gorst for the 8th annual Put the Boots to Hunger food and fundraiser.

Pivotal to the success of this initiative is the donation of BD&P's chuckwagon tarp to the Calgary Food Bank. The generous investment is part of the annual Put the Boots to Hunger campaign held during the ten days of the Calgary Stampede. Each night a different business sponsors the Put the Boots to Hunger chuckwagon tarp and all funds raised contribute to a successful fundraising venture for the Calgary Food Bank.

The Put the Boots to Hunger campaign began in 2008 to help raise food and funds at a time when the Calgary Food bank typically sees a dip in donations. For more information on the campaign, programs and services, visit www.calgaryfoodbank.com.
