A Taste of Fort McMurray

Thank you to all of our sponsors, participating restaurants, and volunteers for making the 2013 A Taste of Fort McMurray so successful!

We are continuously stunned by the amount support and enthusiasm the community presents at our events.  

We definitely cannot wait until next year!


ABOUT THE EVENT

It took place on Wednesday, August 21, 2013, 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., at Curling Rink, Suncor Community Leisure Centre, MacDonald Island Park.

The culinary journey it is, A Taste of Fort McMurray attracts foodies, their friends and others who are looking to explore the culinary arts on offer in Wood Buffalo.

At A Taste of Fort McMurray, guests will enjoy:

  • food samples from up to 16 local food establishments in the company of 400 food enthusiasts,
  • light entertainment, and
  • a silent auction.

A Taste of Fort McMurray is a fundraiser event hosted by Volunteer Wood Buffalo, Leadership Wood Buffalo, and Nonprofit Sector Link Wood Buffalo, a newly merged community benefit organization. The objectives of this event are to raise money for the newly merged organization, raise the profile of the newly merged organization, and demonstrate leadership in volunteer management.

In the past, A Taste of Fort McMurray has been a huge success in the community and was completely sold out in 2012.  Our goal this year is to raise $30,000 for Volunteer Wood Buffalo, Leadership Wood Buffalo and Nonprofit Sector Link Wood Buffalo.
