The Bob Edwards Award

Authors and Creative Hosts

One of the trademarks of this event is the prominent table hosts who help to create a truly notable experience for our guests.

Every year guests of the Bob Edwards Award Gala enjoy an unforgettable evening with a prominent writer, filmmaker, musician, artist or athlete from Calgary’s creative community. Guests have the opportunity to dine with a renowned table host, to engage in great conversations and to learn more about their host’s unique talents.
