CELEBRATING THE GOOD WORKS IN OUR COMMUNITY A COMMUNITY INITIATIVE The Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off (SCDO) is a community builder initiative that brings together the professional dance community, community leaders, the business community and many talented volunteers to build awareness and raise funds for the great works happening in our community. It's about Red Deer coming together to Share the Magic! RED DEER'S PREMIER ANNUAL GALA Every year 8 community leaders step out of their comfort zone accepting the challenge to raise $15,000 for a chosen charity and, with the assistance of a professional dance instructor, learn a dance routine which he/she will perform on the night of the event. It is a sold-out event! Over eight hundred people from all walks of life attend the event supporting their favourite dance couple and the chosen charity. By now the audience is hyped right up and eager to hit the dance floor so the evening closes with a public dance with the popular Calgary band Dr. Zeus and the Who!

As one of many proud supporters of the 2018 Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off, Todayville was proud to help raise over $400,000.00 for the construction of Canada Games Celebration Plaza.

Celebration Plaza will debut as host of a major arts and cultural festival during the 2019 Canada Winter Games, but it will continue to serve Red Deer as a hub for events for generations to come.

The plaza runs along 48th avenue, beside Central Middle School as well as the historic Central Middle School which will become the home of many cultural groups.

Celebration Plaza and all the activity and people involved in cultural and arts events will spearhead a revitalization of this north east area of downtown.  It’s very likely we’ll see new businesses and a stronger community due to the creation of this hub.

Please enjoy this sneak peak of Canada Games Celebration Plaza and this video highlighting the many supporters who will help make this beautiful new downtown amenity possible!

2019 Canada Winter Games

Breaking News.. ND / Reporter comes out from behind the camera to steal the spotlight!

For someone who spends his days shining the spotlight on others, it’s an uncomfortable feeling to step onto the “other” side of the camera.  But that’s exactly what rdnewsNOW, Big 105 and 106.7 The Drive News Director Troy Gillard did when he was asked to support the 2019 Canada Winter Games effort to build Celebration Plaza.  The fact that his support would require a vast amount of courage as he took on the task of Celebrity Dancer is all the more impressive!  Fortunately for Troy.. he had an amazing teacher in Olya Joseph of the Dando Dance Company in Calgary.. and he had a love for Elvis that was just waiting to come out!

Proceeds from the 2018 Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off will help build an incredible new park in downtown Red Deer.  The Canada Games Celebration Plaza will be headquarters for our entire community during the 2019 Canada Winter Games.  Then the park will anchor future events and become a permanent and critical fixture for community building events for decades to come!

Thanks to rdnewsNOW / Big 105 / 106.7 The Drive… for sharing Troy’s hidden talents with Central Alberta for Celebration Plaza!  Thank you for helping us develop a beautiful new asset for our downtown, our community, and our future.
