Date: Friday November 30, 2018

This event will mark the 19th Anniversary of The Owen Hart Foundation and the work they do within the Calgary community. This extraordinary evening will punctuate The Owen Hart Foundation’s 19 years of humanitarian service and commitment to helping those with limited resources, but with unlimited potential.

Over the past three decades, Alec Baldwin has established himself as one of Hollywood’s most gifted, hilarious, and controversial leading men. For his work in the role of Jack Donaghy on Tina Fey’s irreverent series 30 Rock, he won two Emmys, three Golden Globes, and seven Screen Actors Guild Awards.

In his new memoir Nevertheless, Baldwin transcends his public persona, opening up about facets of his life he has long kept private. Told with his signature candor, savvy, and wit, Nevertheless reveals an Alec Baldwin we have never fully seen before.

Offer valid Tuesday May 22nd @ 10:00am until Wednesday May 23 @ 10:00pm.
