Brian recently participated in the Willow Park Golf Charity Tournament to help raise funds for “Calgary Meals on Wheels.” Brian is pictured here with the successful auction bidders, who just happen to be the management team of Meals on Wheels. The successful bidders all enjoyed their own private room at the Rouge Resturant, who donated both the space and an incredible lunch to the cause.Brian was ‘purchased’ during the auction, and after their lunch at the Rouge, he entertained the group with a presentation on “Planning your Bucket List”, a tour to some special places around the world, via his ‘live-narrated’ video segments. The total amount raised at the tournament? A whopping $575,000 for this incredibly important organization!
Encouraging young people to hike, canoe and camp in our Canadian outdoors is something Brian has talked about for years, using his presentations as a tool of inspiration.

Pictured here with Brian are the organizers of the event, who are only a few of the inspirational leaders of their respective young Junior Forest Warden club members.
