Joy is a wonder drug
The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada works with communities across the country to provide children with life threatening illnesses the opportunity to realize their most heartfelt wish. By creating unique, meaningful experiences, Children’s Wish enhances quality of life for these courageous children and their families.
The Children’s Wish Gala – Night of Wonders
The most wonderful Wish-granting fundraiser in Calgary returns on Wednesday, May 24, 2017 for the Children’s Wish Gala ‘Night of Wonders’ presented by Shaw. The ‘Night of Wonders’ takes place at the Grey Eagle Resort, Calgary with cocktails at 6pm and the program beginning at 7pm. This year we will be welcoming back Mr. Dave Kelly, former host of CityTv Breakfast Television, as our master of ceremonies.
The Children’s Wish Gala is a crucial fundraiser towards Children’s Wish mandate of never denying an eligible child their most heartfelt Wish. Last year, the Gala raised more than $350,000 which granted roughly 35 Wishes (at an average cost of $10,000 for a Wish).
The event brings together philanthropic donors in the Calgary community with Wish children and their families. This year, a series of activations will highlight the wonderful places Wish children have visited on their Wish trips, from Japan to the Bahamas. The meal and décor will reflect each of these unique locations.
