Save the date for the 30th Annual Crystal Ball on Friday, November 18, 2016.
Thank you for your support of last year's 29th Annual Crystal Ball!
On Friday November 20, over 400 guests were immersed in a Persian paradise at the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver as they helped raise more than $1.4 million at BC Children’s Hospital Foundation’s 29th annual Crystal Ball, presented by Beedie Development Group. Proceeds from the Crystal Ball will launch the vital Children's Healing Experience Project throughout BC Children's Hospital. This $6 million initiative will ensure that all aspects of the care and environment provided in the Teck Acute Care Centre will fully support the healing process for BC's kids for generations to come when the centre opens in 2017.
The Children’s Healing Experience Project is aimed at creating an environment that will help to reduce children’s pain and anxiety through positive distraction, while assisting with the clinical care and evaluation of young patients, and providing patients and families with a sense of control over their environment. Evidence shows that these factors can greatly improve healing time and effectiveness. See below some of the families your donations are helping to support:
"We have an opportunity to make the new BC Children’s Hospital the best possible healing environment for children,” said Teri Nicholas, president and CEO of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. "Our guests at the 29th annual Crystal Ball recognize the importance of the physical environment in the healing process and are contributing to ensuring children have an experience that is as free of pain and anxiety as possible.”
We look forward to seeing you at next year's 30th anniversary event.
