Bikes and Beers Against Cancer

Thursday, July 6, 2017 | 7-10pm


Join Linnea’s Legion on July 6th, 2017 in the La Cite Francophone rotunda (just outside Café Biciclette) to help the fight against cancer with a real live hootenany!!

Silent auction items include sporting equipment and custom performance analyses, massage therapy, yoga, fitness classes and more. There are also amazing offers up for grabs from local eateries, coffee shops and Alberta’s #1 rated bottle shop, Sherbrooke Liquor!

Local Artist Julie Witten-Land of Salted Studio (http://saltedstudio.com) will be doing a live painting throughout the night that will be auctioned off at the end of evening. We will also be featuring daring acrobatic performances from local aerialists and live dance performances.

Throw in additional amazing contributions from local artists and businesses, along with refreshments and we can guarantee a night of good times, tomfoolery and shenanigans. And of course, there will be spandex…

All proceeds go directly to the Ride to Conquer Cancer, which in turn funds new cancer research, treatments, and compassionate care in our community. All are welcome so bring a friend or two!

A $10 donation at the door is recommended.

2016 Donor Appreciation Night and Auction

Wednesday, July 27, 2016


Please join us on Wednesday, July 27th, from 7 to 10pm at La Cite Francophone (8627 – 91 Street) for an incredible event. This is an opportunity for us to meet our extended network of donors, supporters, friends and fans! There will be complementary treats as well as a cash bar to keep you hydrated (or dehydrated) as the case may be… There will also be over $6000 worth of items up for grabs at our silent (and live) auctions!

Did we mention entertainment??? The 50-foot ceiling was far too tempting for our resident acrobat to pass up, so you will be treated to what will undoubtably be a stunning display of acrobatics and human strength!

Most of all, this is our opportunity to say a heartfelt THANK YOU to all of you who have helped us get this far. So please come on down, meet us in person, have a beverage and be ready to share a laugh and maybe a tear. Come ready to bid on sporting goods and paraphernalia, incredible local artwork plus tons of local goods and services. Given the gear up for grabs, it’s safe to say that some people are going to walk away with some amazing steals (see list below). And, of course, all of the proceeds from the event/auction will go to the Alberta Cancer Foundation via Linnea’s Legion.

Up for Auction:

– A Scott Road Bike (worth $1000)
– Signed Gloves from Edmonton Oilers Defenceman Oscar Klefbom
– Edmonton Oilers Tickets
– A 5 Course Dinner for 4 with Wine Pairings from VIVO (worth $500)
– A Variety of Liquor and Wine Baskets
– Gift Certificates from District Cafe, the Pint, Alta Moda Hair, Brentwood Chiropractic and more!

…and much much more!

Come help Linnea’s Legion take off the training wheels, pump-up the tires (and the team!) and gear up for the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer.
