Calgary, Canada, September 03, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Bloomex was delighted to be a community sponsor at the 2015 Calgary Dragon Boat Festival.
Dragon Boat Racing is still very active all across Canada, with a large group of energetic participants in Calgary. One of Calgary’s premier sport festivals, the Calgary Dragon Boat Race & Festival draws more than 1850 competitors, over 4000 spectators and provides an abundance of excitement and cultural experiences. It is also recognized by Dragon Boat Canada as a qualifying event for the 2016 National Club Crew Qualifiers.
This year the festival hosted 54 teams of which 12 teams were from out of town.
Bloomex was proud to provide beautiful floral centrepieces to decorate the VIP tent at the Festival. Bloomex also provided the large presentation bouquet to be used in the awards ceremony, as well as two gourmet gift baskets. The launch ceremony for the breast cancer "Sistership" was one of the most moving events at the race weekend. The Sistership Dragon Boat Association was started in 1998 by a group of women from Calgary, all of whom had experienced breast cancer. Their commitment to learn to paddle a dragon boat became a symbol of this group’s quest to rebuild the health and confidence eroded by a cancer diagnosis.
Bloomex was very pleased to donate all the pink carnations used in the breast cancer boat launch ceremony.
The Calgary Dragon Boat Association relayed their appreciation to Bloomex, saying, "Thank you to our community sponsor @Bloomex_canada for supporting us!"
