Building Hope For Kids


The Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation supports the 97,000 kids and families who visit the hospital each year. Last year at ‘A Night in Mexico’, Building Hope for Kids raised $160,000 in net proceeds for the Alberta Children’s Hospital’s greatest needs, thanks to the generous support of donors like you. Thank you for considering becoming a part of this special event this year!

A Night in New ORLEANS

Saturday October 27, 2018
Calgary Telus Convention Centre

Baywest Homes and Marriott Calgary Downtown are proud to present the seventh edition of the Building Hope for Kids Gala; A Night in New Orleans! This annual event welcomes over 600 Building and Development industry professionals each year who share a desire to support the Alberta Children’s Hospital while experiencing some of the world’s most exciting locales.

Together we have travelled to New York, Paris, Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro, Italy and Mexico. This year, we invite guests to experience New Orleans; a city as famous for its food and music, as for its unique traditions. With live jazz music, auctions, prizing, surprise entertainment, and themed food and drink, this ‘Night in New Orleans’ is not to be missed. Costumes, beads and feathers are encouraged!

The Cause

To date, Building Hope for Kids has raised over $1.4 Million in net proceeds for state-of-
the-art equipment, innovative research and family-centered care programs at the Alberta Children’s Hospital. This year, we were inducted into the ‘Thanks a Million’ club at the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation, an amazing achievement in just six years!

This year’s event will once again support Mental Health initiatives at the Alberta Children’s Hospital. Nearly 1 in 5 children has a diagnosable psychiatric concern - making mental health issues the single largest health problem facing young people in our country today. The funds raised at this event will make a real difference for children and families in our community, thanks to the generous support of people like you.
