About the Event
The Alberta Children’s Hospital is a world class facility with focuses from research to life-saving care. Every year the hospital works tirelessly to help over 94,000 children and their families get through some tough times and get back on their feet, and depend on donations to help fund their programs, equipment and other areas that allow them to provide top notch medical service to their patients.
Building Hope for Kids is an annual industry event that raises money for the Alberta Children’s Hospital. Sponsored by Brookfield Residential, Baywest Homes and the Calgary Marriott Downtown, the event hosts over 600 industry professionals, and is themed after some of the most interesting places in the world. This year’s theme is “A Night in Italy” and will be take place Saturday, October 15 at the Calgary TELUS Convention Centre. This year, guests are invited to experience the incredible history, beauty, and cuisine of Italy, a country with a rich and lasting contribution to Western civilization. With live music, auctions, themed food and drink and surprise entertainment, this ‘Night in Italy’ is sure to delight the senses. Last year’s event raised over $200,000 and has raised over $1 million dollars since it began 5 years ago. Building Hope for Kids is looking to continue the overwhelming success that was last year’s “A Night in Rio”.

Four years ago, Heavy attended the event and enjoyed it so much that we wanted to get on board as a sponsor. For the “Night in Tokyo” event, Heavy fabricated and donated a Japanese themed stage which was a hit with the event’s patrons. Due to the previous year’s success, Heavy continued our sponsorship at the “Night in Rio” event, by donating an elegant ceiling feature following the theme of Brazilian Carnival. Once again Heavy will be sponsoring the Building Hope for Kids fundraiser, and will be donating an Italian themed decoration.
