The Bob Edwards Award recognizes a Canadian who personifies the spirit of Bob Edwards, the irascible and pugnacious editor of the Calgary Eye Opener newspaper from 1902 to 1922.
Imagine going back in time one hundred years, to an evening of elegance at the turn of the century. Guests will experience 1912 as we capture the essence of the era at every turn, including a hearty, period inspired dinner menu and white glove service. The evening's program will take place throughout the meal including honouring this year's winner Mary Walsh and her incredible career in Canadian television.
All proceeds support building readers for life at the Calgary Public Library. An individual ticket provides entry for one person to the Bob Edwards Award Gala and a portion of the ticket price will be eligible for a charitable tax receipt.
