With #bikiniespy only a few weeks away, we figured it’s time to release the official #bikiniespy FAQ. All the answers to your questions about our Stampede fundraiser in support of Special Olympics Calgary are right here:
1.What is #bikiniespy?
#bikiniespy is a Stampede-themed fundraiser for Special Olympics Calgary (SOC) happening on Saturday, July 6, 2013. espy raises money for SOC by asking women to line up outside the store in their bikinis and cowboy boots for a free Stampede outfit with a donation to SOC. Those who wish to participate must be registered online as there are no open spots this year. Participants who have registered online will be completely styled in a western outfit, valued at $500, by one of espy’s professional fashion stylists for braving the #bikiniespy lineup. #bikiniespy is also a Stampede Breakfast, open to the community and free with a donation to SOC.
