30th Annual Crystal Ball

On November 18, over 400 guests helped raise a record breaking $4.5 million at BC Children’s Hospital Foundation’s 30th annual Crystal Ball, presented by Beedie Development Group.

Proceeds will support the Children's Healing Experience Project. Oncology patient Aidan Chin shared his story and how this initiative - the first of its kind in Canada – will impact kids like him. The project is designed to create inspirational healing experiences by integrating curated, purposeful art into the new Teck Acute Care Centre, scheduled to open in 2017.

Since its inception 30 years ago, the Crystal Ball has raised $25 million for BC Children’s Hospital. In honour of the 30th year, Ryan and Cindy Beedie matched individual donations up to $1 million that were over-and-above the evening's regular silent and live auctions. The Beedies’ generosity helped drive donations to an all-time high.

The Crystal Ball committee, led by Co-Chairs Arya Eshghi & Diane Norton, treated guests to a whimsical four-course dinner in wonderland, prepared by Venue Sponsor the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver, perfectly paired with wines from Painted Rock Estate Winery. The event was made possible by Crystal Sponsors Avigilon and The Keg Steakhouse + Bar; Airfare Sponsor Djavad Mowafaghian Foundation, Reception Co-Sponsors Milani Plumbing, Drainage & Heating and Tracey Jackson Law Corporation; Sunshine Sponsor Canaccord Genuity, and Entertainment Sponsor WBI Home Warranty.
