The 2017 Mayor's Lunch for Arts Champions celebrates the power of art

Beyond bricks and mortar, it's culture that speaks to the heart of the city. The annual Mayor's Lunch for Arts Champions is proof the arts community is not only alive, but thriving in Calgary.

This year's sold out lunch, held on March 22, once again brought together Calgary's business and art communities to recognize the important relationships that foster artistic achievement.

"We see leaders in our community create canvases for dreams to take shape," said Randy Ferguson, COO of Strategic Group, the Champion sponsor of the Mayor's Lunch. "That is what makes a great city. Not a good or a functional city, but a great city. One that people learn from, admire, and replicate."

CN: How do homeowners stand to benefit from recent infrastructure announcements such as the new school in Sunset Ridge and new pool?

IB: Amenities such as our new pool and curling centre greatly enhance our resident's quality of life. Providing diverse options for recreation is very important to the Town of Cochrane.
