Centre plans a Fairytale fundraiser for Canuck Place – David Lede House

Tickets on sale now for fun, family event – don’t miss out!

Abbotsford children will be living the fairytale April 27.

The third annual Fairytale and Adventure Breakfast in support of Canuck Place Children’s Hospice will fill the Sevenoaks Shopping Centre food court with superheroes, princesses and pint-sized adventurers!

“We’re so grateful for community partners like Sevenoaks Shopping Centre who are hosting the Fairytale & Adventure Breakfast,” says Canuck Place CEO Margaret McNeil. “Fundraising events like this one really bring the Fraser Valley community together and help provide complex care to children and families who need it the most. With 47 per cent of Canuck Place families residing in the Fraser Valley, these proceeds will make an impact on families here in the community.”

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice offers pediatric palliative care for over 728 BC children with life-threatening illnesses and the families who love them delivering care from two provincial locations, including Canuck Place – Dave Lede House in Abbotsford.

This growth is only possible through the caring community of local donors who support Canuck Place children and families. Canuck Place raises 60 per cent of its annual operating costs, so donor support truly helps to increase and sustain the services and care offered.

A Fairytale fundraiser

Raising about $20,000 each of the two previous years, the centre is setting their goals even higher this year, says Tricia Schmuland, Marketing Director, Sevenoaks Shopping Centre.

“We started this partnership three years ago, recognizing the large number of families we see here every day and the vital work the team at David Lede House does for the community,” Schmuland says.

Families will start their Fairytale and Adventure day with a delicious breakfast sponsored by Otter 248th Trail featuring pancakes, eggs, sausages, yogurt and new this year, a toppings bar!

Also on the calendar are face-painting, airbrush tattoos, a photo booth, visits with the Princesses and Superheroes and more, while mom and dad can browse the silent auction for some terrific items up for bid. (Donations of auction items are welcome for anyone who’d like to help the centre support the children’s hospice.)

“It’s a lot of fun and it helps build awareness for Canuck Place,” Schmuland says. “There’s a lot of value and our guests feel good about giving back.”
