On June 11th, 2011 beginning at 1pm, downtown Edmonton will host the Third annual “Al Fresco 104th St. Block Party” and fundraiser for E4C’s Edmonton School Lunch Program. The event not only celebrates the start of summer, but also works to increase awareness of locally owned businesses on, and around, 104th St. by hosting a one of a kind event in benefit of a worthy cause.
The “Al Fresco 104th St. Block Party” was conceived and developed as a community event. The businesses and residents along 104th St. believe that downtown Edmonton is a vibrant and growing community and want to share their enthusiasm in the name of a worthy cause. In 2010, over $23,000 was raised by the 104th-St. community for the E4C School Lunch Program. 8,000 people turned out to support the event and celebrate in the downtown core.
This year, organizers have been working diligently since the beginning of the year, we are hopeful for a crowd of 10,000 people and raising $30,000 for the E4C School Lunch Program this time around. Please mark your calendar for a heavy date of fun, food, wine, entertainment, parade and community spirit.
