Baywest Homes, Calgary Marriott Downtown and Brookfield Residential are proud to present the sixth edition of the Building Hope for Kids Gala; A Night in Mexico! This annual event welcomes over 600 Development and Building 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 traveled to New York, Paris, Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro and Italy. This year, we invite guests to experience Mexico; a country of rich tradition, beautiful landscapes, colourful entertainment and delicious cuisine. With live music, auctions, prizing, surprise entertainment, and themed food and drink, this ‘Night in Mexico’ is sure to impress.
Through generous community support, the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation invests in excellence in care for over 95,000 kids and families who rely on the hospital each year. To date, Building Hope for Kids has raised over $1.2 Million in net proceeds for state-of-the-art equipment, innovative research and family-centred care programs.
This year’s event will 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.
The Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation supports the 95,000 kids and families who visit the hospital each year. Last year at ‘A Night in Italy’, Building Hope for Kids raised $165,000 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!
