Bentall Kennedy has launched its Fare Fight For Food Challenge, a national initiative that will partner Bentall Kennedy-managed shopping centres in 17 locations across Canada with local food banks.
From now until October 31st, 2012, 17 of its shopping centres will host special events and promotions to raise awareness about hunger in our communities and across our country. They will compete against other participating malls across Canada, for funds raised and pounds of food collected. Winners will be given one of five $10,000 grants to be donated to the winner’s partner food bank.
Hazeldean Mall in Kanata is one of the many participating shopping centres and, with your help, could win a $10, 000 grant, which would be donated to the Kanata Food Cupboard!
As part of this initiative, Hazeldean Mall will be hosting the following special events:
- June 16th — BBQ Benefit with Boat Raffle
- June 27th to July 16th — Electronics to Cash Donations for the Kanata Food Cupboard
- July 1st — Win A Year of Groceries and support the Kanata Food Cupboard for the $10, 000 grant plus Raffle for a Pair of Bikes (draw to be held at the end of July)
- August 16th — Vegas in Kanata with Elvis at Hazeldean Mall (Casino Night with a Live Elvis Impersonator and silent auction, with all proceeds going to the Kanata Food Cupboard).
