People on the street dropped nearly $1000 into the jars at the #TeamDBBQ, and then Tangerine carved out their own ‘big cheque’ worth another $5000.
I cannot say enough about the work that Tangerine Bank does for the community in Calgary.
They entered a team in the Race For Kids and raised more than $1500 for Boys and Girls Club in Calgary.
They set up a Bicycles for Humanity pit stop on the sidewalk in front of the Tangerine Cafe to encourage people to bike to work and get them tuned up.

They have been a national sponsor for Five Hole For Food, an event supporting food banks in Canada. The Calgary event goes on Tuesday.
In the past 3 years, the gang at Tangerine (previously ING Direct) have been responsible for more than $15 000 in donations to Team Diabetes and I couldn’t be more grateful.
And now another big cheque in 2014 (top, featuring Dan MacRae of the Roughnecks substituting for me).
I can’t begin to describe the thanks I have Jonathan, Neha, Peter, and everyone at Tangerine. Here’s where that money goes and how it helps the 9 million Canadians living with diabetes and pre-diabetes
