Editors Note: There are 2 photos and 2 videos included with this press release.

Big Rock Brewery Income Trust (TSX:BR.UN) - Over the past 16 years the Eddies event has helped launch acting, directing and graphic design careers all across our great country and have created hours and hours of raucous laughter for our Eddies judging panels and the audience of 1,800+ Big Rock beer drinkers.

All the while, the Eddies have been supporting great local organizations like Calgary Eddies beneficiaries One Yellow Rabbit Performance Theatre, Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter and EPCOR CENTRE for the Performing Arts.

Plus this year, for the first time ever, we awarded one top Student winner in each of the categories: video and print. Not only did these winners bank a few extra dollars but they helped raise money for their respective schools.
