Community partnerships with local businesses are amazing examples of fun and supportive fundraising efforts for our organization and the people we serve. We like to spotlight our community partners who continue to support us with amazing events.

Today, we shine a light on the great peeps at the Ship & Anchor for including us in their annual Ship-Nog fundraising campaign in December 2023.

What is Ship-Nog?

For those unaware, the Ship & Anchor has been undertaking this annual event to raise funds for local community organizations and not-for-profit groups since 2006. They have managed to raise over $250,000 by 2017 and have only added to that total over the subsequent years.

Each year, the folks at the Ship identify organizations they will raise funds for through their Ship-Nog sales, of which SafeLink Alberta is one. They also acknowledge that it could not be a success without partners and the community joining in.

With support from Sysco Foods and Bacardi Canada, who donated ingredients, the Ship & Anchor donated $5 for every glass and $10 for every bottle sold. This year, Confluence Distilling came on board as their manufacturing partner and, as such, could sell bottles at their location.

So, how did the 2024 Ship-Nog campaign go?

During the 2023 program, they sold 3758 glasses and 2053 bottles, which raised $55,040.00. Congratulations!!

We want to acknowledge and thank Nicola Trolez, Marketing & Promotion Manager, Ship & Anchor Owners, staff and management, Sysco Foods, Bacardi Canada, Confluence Distilling and without question, the many Calgarians who purchased a glass or bottle of Ship-Nog cheer in support of local community organizations.
