Post Hotel & Spa is pleased to announce that $198,000 was raised at our inaugural Kids Cancer Care Cocktail Gala on May 6, 2023.
We are elated to share the remarkable success of our inaugural Cocktail Gala, held at Post Hotel & Spa, in support of the Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta. This unforgettable evening brought together compassionate individuals and generous sponsors to make a profound impact on the lives of children and families facing the challenges of childhood cancer. We are immensely grateful for the overwhelming support that made this event a resounding success.
Our first year hosting the event in this format was a resounding triumph, building upon Post Hotel's longstanding partnership with the Kids Cancer Care Foundation. Over the years, we have raised over one million dollars for this noble cause, and we remain committed to raising awareness and funds through this annual event. The Cocktail Gala featured a delectable array of inventive cuisine, complemented by carefully curated wines from around the world. Guests indulged in an abundance of passed hors d'oeuvres and experienced the culinary artistry of our talented chefs at various stations. At the heart of this event is our shared commitment to supporting Kids Cancer Care and their unwavering dedication to young cancer patients and their families. The foundation's programs provide invaluable support at every stage of the cancer journey, from diagnosis to treatment and beyond. The evening was a testament to the strength, resilience, and spirit of these incredible children and their families.
We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every attendee of the gala. Your presence and contributions made a tremendous difference in the lives of those affected by childhood cancer. We would also like to express our deepest appreciation to our event sponsors, including NorthGate Aviation and Volker Stevin, as well as our wine partners, donors, and the dedicated team at Post Hotel & Spa. Together, we raised an astounding $198,000, which will directly support vital research and essential services for children and families battling cancer.
We would also like to offer a special recognition to the Hirani Family, who attended the gala, and to Shaan, for courageously sharing their family's inspiring story. Their presence filled the evening with joy and hope, reminding us all of the resilience and importance of childhood. We are honoured to have had the opportunity to meet them and witness their infectious smiles and laughter.
With the immense success of this year's gala, we are excited to announce that the tradition will continue. Mark your calendars for next year's event, set to take place on Saturday, May 4, 2024. Stay tuned for further details.
The Kids Cancer Care Gala at Post Hotel & Spa was an unforgettable evening filled with compassion, generosity, and a shared commitment to making a difference. Together, we have taken significant strides towards the vision of a cure for every child and care for every family. Thank you for being a part of this extraordinary event, and we eagerly anticipate your continued support in the years to come.
