Barney Bentall & The Cariboo Express
Peter Burgener Memorial Concert
Over a decade ago, legendary singer/songwriter Barney Bentall launched what is now known as The Cariboo Express tour. Featuring some of Canada’s finest roots and country musicians, his one-of-a-kind fundraising event has raised $1 million so far in cities throughout Western Canada in support of local charities.
Classroom Champions has been a part of this generous initiative since 2015 and is thrilled to once again to align with The Caribou Express for another evening of song, fun and philanthropy. This year’s concert is the 4th annual tribute to the late Peter Burgener, one of Calgary’s most influential architects, community activists, philanthropists and avid country music fans.
For more than seven years, Classroom Champions, a Federally Registered Charity, has connected 150+ Olympic and Paralympic athletes to more than 35,000 underserved students, supported 800+ teachers, and engaged thousands of families and their surrounding communities across North America, all so our children can achieve successful futures.
Classroom Champion's one-to-many, in-class mentoring program builds citizenship and leadership skills, enhances digital literacy, and encourages academic achievement while developing teachers and enhancing school infrastructure. By providing world class role models, Classroom Champions help students learn how to set and reach their goals, persevere through adversity, and dream big.
