YYC Tech Gives is a group of 31 Calgary tech companies that raise funds throughout the year in support of the Calgary Food Bank. They have raised $650,000 over the past 5 years. The SPAM Cup is their marquee event, covered by CBC’s Angela Knight.
This year there was the opportunity to add a “ringer” to your team for extra points and many volunteered, including Harvey the Hound and our own ringer Three-time Canadian Olympic decathlete Michael C. Smith!
After all was said and done 30,255 lbs of food was packed – a 23% increase over last year. Additionally, we collectively raised an amazing $184,815 from our various company events throughout 2015.
