This time of year, there is a lot of pressure to do the right thing. Give to this. Give to that. Buy this for this person. We need a donation for this organization. It can be overwhelming.
At Sportsnet 960, we get that. We know that 2016 has been a tough year for a lot of our fellow Calgarians. We also know our listeners always come through during the holidays. This year, we are partnering with the great people that run The Mustard Seed.
Did you know? 80 percent of the clients The Mustard Seed helps are men. Guys who are down on their luck, have had some bad breaks, job loss and many other reasons. Right now, the need for new men’s underwear, toothbrushes, razors and deodorant is massive.

David will do his ever popular stand-up segment that will leave you in stitches or as David likes to say “Come find out what it’s like to be inside my twisted mind, but please remember to keep quiet and refrain from laughing. This is golf we’re talking about. It’s very serious business…”.
This is an opportunity to listen to untold stories and participate in a Q&A! David will sit down with Pro golfer and Canadian Graham DeLaet for what will prove to be an entertaining evening. David will also be sitting down with Calgary’s own, Lanny McDonald, who will participate in a discussion with Feherty about all things hockey and golf. Proceeds from the evening will support the newly developed not-for-profit Gordie Howe Centre for Alzheimer’s Research and Education Society (Gordie Howe C.A.R.E.S), located in the brand new Gordie Howe Center for Dementia Care.

FMX legend Travis Pastrana to make his only live Canadian appearance in 2017! Tickets on sale now – CLICK HERE!
The greatest action sports event on the planet, Nitro Circus Live, just wrapped up its biggest world tour yet after playing more than 60 shows across North America, Europe and Australia over the past 10 months. Calgary would have been a highlight of the trek, but due to a sudden and severe storm it was impossible to put on the show. Because of that disappointment, Nitro Circus Live has decided to bring global superstar Travis Pastrana to McMahon Stadium for a special event as part of its massive 2017 tour. Pastrana will ride with the Nitro Circus crew at this show in what will be his only live appearance in Canada in 2017.
Pastrana was injured at the time of last year’s Stampede Park show and would not have been able to perform. But now he’s back and eager to visit Calgary for the first time. “I can’t wait to finally come to Calgary and ride for the fans there,” said Pastrana. “It’s such a great Olympic city with a passion for action sports and the outdoors. I couldn’t be more pumped to be there in June!”
