The Lunch Box Experience features three of Canada’s brightest stars, all coming together over lunch to raise funds for critical equipment for Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre. Dr. Roberta Bondar, Canada’s first female astronaut and first neurologist in space, will be the keynote speaker. To motivate and inspire audiences, Dr. Bondar draws on her remarkable depth of expertise as an astronaut, physician, scientific researcher, author, and leader. This is Dr. Bondar’s first visit to Central Alberta, and may be your only chance to experience this extraordinary woman in person. Also performing are Erica Sigurdson and Dave Hemstad, comedians both regularly featured on CBC Radio’s smash hit The Debaters. After lunch, you’ll enjoy hysterical standup from both Erica and Dave, plus an episode of witty debater-style banter that will have you in stitches! Tickets are $125 per person or table of 6 for $700, includes lunch and are available now. The Lunch Box Experience, formally part of the Red Deer Festival of Trees event line-up (Festival Business Lunch) is a fresh, new business networking opportunity. Proceeds from this event will go towards ceiling-mounted patient lifts at Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre.
