Thank you for supporting the 32nd annual Crystal Ball
Today, 70% of children in our province with mental illness aren't getting the care they need. The result? Behaviour is stigmatized. Parents are often blamed. Families suffer in silence. Gaps in children's mental health care have resulted in underserved communities across our province. But with your help, we're going to change that. Proceeds from this year’s gala at the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver will fund initiatives designed to transform mental health care at BC Children’s Hospital and across the province. Since its inception, the Crystal Ball has raised almost $28 million for BC Children’s Hospital.
This year's event was inspired by Kintsukuroi [keen-tsoo-koo-roy], a Japanese philosophy that there is perfection in imperfection. It treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object rather than something to disguise. It celebrates resilience - through its beliefs that repair requires transformation and from trauma something stronger and more beautiful can emerge.
Thank you to our generous sponsors for making the Crystal Ball possible.
