On May 23, 2019, the Calgary business and philanthropy community came together to raise over $640,000 for wishes in Alberta.
Together, Alberta’s Night of Wonders galas in Edmonton and Calgary raised over $1 million to grant more than 100 wishes in 2019! These funds will create more joy and wonder for children who need it most – improving outcomes, bringing families together, and sparking magic.
Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada is the largest and only all-Canadian wish granting charity dedicated to granting wishes to Canadian children between the ages of 3 and 17 who are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. For more than 30 years, Children’s Wish has worked tirelessly to grant heartfelt wishes to over 25,000 children and their families – that’s three wishes each and every day, all year long!
The annual Night of Wonders gala is the premier event of Children’s Wish, Alberta & NWT Chapter. Night of Wonders encapsulates the essence of wishes – creating joy, awe, and wonder. We are confident you too, will be inspired by the profound joy and transformation a wish can bring to a child with a life-threatening illness.
The Venue.The Grey Eagle Resort is one of Calgary's biggest event centres, allowing Children's Wish to hold one of Calgary's premiere charity galas. Beautifully decorated and fully equipped, The Grey Eagle resort is proud to be a part of such a beautiful evening.
Food & Wine.Night of Wonders featured food stations from some of Calgary’s most notable chefs. Guests enjoyed unique dishes paired with wines and cocktails for every pallet.
“Everything is so overwhelming, it doesn’t stop. To have some time to just be a family, to just have kids be kids, to just stop worrying about anything and be normal again, just for a while. There is nothing more special.” – Jennifer, Wish Mom
