Special Thanks to Hopewell Residential

Culinary Race participants will be easy to identify on June 11 because they will be wearing blue lanyards donated by Hopewell Residential, one of Calgary’s best new home builders and community developers.  The Culinary Race would like to thank Hopewell for this generous donation.  Outside of the race, take some time to visit Hopewell’s homes and communities, such as Mahogany, Canada’s Community of the Year.  To learn more about Mahogany and other Hopewell communities find them online at www.hopewellresidential.com



Meet Our Sponsors: Sage Plus Clinical Pharmacy


Many of us wish that we had a little more 1950’s small town in our lives. Not the lack of WiFi, mind you, but things like personal service and shopkeepers that remember your name. Unfortunately, living in a city as large as Calgary, it is hard to get personalized service.

Thankfully, if you know where to look, that personal touch is available. We’re excited that one such business decided to sponsor The Culinary Race this year.

Sage Plus Clinical Pharmacy is a non-traditional drug store located in Inglewood focusing on early detection, prevention and treatment through life style changes and holistic care.  They also carry a wide range of natural skin care products and Professional supplements.

Joyce Choi and Kendra Chan make it their goal to know each of their customers by name and make them feel like home. They even have doggy treats in case you bring your 4 legged friends with you to visit. Check out their website for a full listing of their many services (including travel immunization consultations) and follow them on social media through the accounts below:
