Hoist a stein or two at Calgary Oktoberfest, Sept. 27 and 28 at the BMO Centre.

Oktoberfest is reason alone to raise a glass.

But the organizers behind Calgary’s Oktoberfest — Sept. 27 and 28 at the BMO Centre — are giving one more reason to celebrate.

Calgary Oktoberfest has partnered with Place of Rescue, a Calgary charity that helps some of the poorest children.

They raise over 400 orphans in 3 orphanages and even have a university dorm where they provide a 4 year university education for ALL orphans! This charity is creating leaders that will help lift Cambodia out of poverty. Even more amazing, when Southern Alberta was recently devastated by floods, the orphans and staff of Place of Rescue raised $900 and gave it to the Paul Brandt Build It Forward Foundation specifying that they wanted the money to go to the victims of the Alberta floods.

That generosity made the organizers of Oktoberfest want to get involved and help out.

The event will feature four Bavarian breweries, but also eight local favourites, plus food from Craft, Wurst, National, Vagabond, Ship & Anchor, Wild Rose Brewpub, Jameson’s, Pig & Duke and the Libertine.

The party goes 4-11 p.m. on Sept. 27, and 3-11 p.m. on Sept. 28. tickets are available through the Oktoberfest website.Prost!
