Kids Forever is a children’s charity based out of Fort McMurray who support Alberta Families with sick children and the following organizations: RMHNA, Glenrose, Northern Lights Foundation, Stollery Social Workers and Camp He Ho Ha. This was their final event and we celebrated with a dinner, silent auction, live auction and dance.
Over 1.1 million dollars was raised throughout the night and 22 families were highlighted and presented with cheques. Some of those families were from the Edmonton area, some old friends from the Stollery and also some families who have stayed at RMHNA.
There was a great sense of community and togetherness seeing many of the 800 people in the room sporting a Meri’s Heart bracelet. RMHNA was presented with a plaque and a $40,000 donation from Kids Forever by the Kristman Family in memory of their son Will Kristman. They also gave us a beautiful glass star in honor of Will.
