The Cause.

In a milestone moment, Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada and Make-A-Wish Canada are joining forces with the goal of granting the wish of every eligible child across the country. As one organization, our mission will be to provide children with life-threatening illnesses the opportunity to realize their most heartfelt wish, giving them the strength to endure their treatments and build resilience. The 2020 Night of Wonders gala will support the newly united Make-A-Wish Canada.

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.

Overlooking the river valley, Hall D in the Edmonton Convention Centre is the premier location for special events in the city. Children’s Wish/Make-A-Wish is proud to partner with them and create a carnival atmosphere for our guests.

Food & Wine.

The in-house culinary team features 11 Red Seal chefs. Led by 2012 Canadian Chef of the Year Serge Belair, the diverse and experienced culinary experts treat every dish like a piece of art. Guests will be treated to a champagne reception and beautifully paired wines for the evening.
“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
