Born into the first family of Pro Wrestling, 2016 Recipient, Bret “Hitman” Hart, has risen to become one of the world’s most recognizable wrestlers and has made a name for Calgary as a cultural icon and co-founder of the Calgary Hitmen.

Proceeds from the Bob Edwards Award Gala will be directed to the Calgary Public Library to support key priorities, including early childhood learning. In 2015, the gala raised more than $300,000 to enhance programs and services offered by the Library; making a critical investment in Calgary and the potential of its citizens.

Requirements:

All guests will be divided into two teams, each represented by a wrestler. At the end of each round, after the running totals are announced, the actors will stand on opposing stages, challenge each other, encourage their team to open their wallets, and share facts from their respective libraries based on a script.

We’ll need you to channel the theatrics of 80s-style WWE stars, stir the crowd into a frenzy and rock a wrestling singlet.
