District of Dreams
October 4, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm
The District of Dreams gala is Edmonton’s newest event that celebrates the philanthropic spirit within our city. The event will take place in the heart of North America’s largest sport and entertainment district and will bring awareness to the extraordinary power of art, cultural, sport, and recreation events for our youth.
The inaugural year of the District of Dreams gala will create a must-attend event, raise awareness and funds for Kids Up Front and recognize our donors who have provided countless experiences to local youth.
At Kids Up Front, we aspire to give kids more than just a ticket – we want to give them incredible opportunities, enriching experiences, and make their dreams come true. District of Dreams seemed like the perfect name for our new and improved fundraiser that has moved into a new building in a new and invigorating part of the city. With the philanthropic spirit of our city inspiring us, we wanted to have an event like no other – similar to the events we provide on a daily basis. Kids Up Front provides access to the children and youth that we serve, and for one night we want to give the adults that support our cause a chance to let their inner child out and have a peak at the access that our kids experience everyday. We are going to give you access to a brand-new venue in Edmonton (The JW Marriott Wayne Gretzky Ballroom), access to the teams and businesses that we partner with, and access to a whole lot of good food!
Kids Up Front relies on the generous donations from the community – in the form of cash donations, grants, and revenue generated from special events like District of Dreams – to guarantee that we are able to continue to provide outstanding experiences for deserving kids. Our programs are provided at no cost to any of the users and as a result our board members and staff work hard to sustain the funds required to help provide life-changing experiences to the children we serve. That is why we rely on donations to fund the administrative costs of running our life changing programs.
The funds raised from District of Dreams will go directly to providing more incredible experiences for children and youth around Edmonton and surrounding areas.
