Baywest Homes and Calgary Marriott 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!

Sadly, this year’s New Orleans event will be our final destination, and the last Building Hope for Kids event.

We do hope you can join us as we experience the gourmet cuisine of the Bayou, the finest Jazz music as well as fantastic live and silent auction items.

As a valued supporter and to celebrate our seventh and final year, we are pleased to offer you a seventh ticket for free when six tickets are purchased. *Your extra ticket will be provided post-purchase; our team will reach out to you personally.

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, Building Hope for Kids was 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.
