Crystal Ball


Thank you for raising more than $2.8 million at the 31st annual Crystal Ball!

On Friday, November 24th 400 guests raised an incredible $2.8 million for pediatric mental health at BC Children’s Hospital Foundation’s Crystal Ball.  Presented by Beedie Development Group, the gala raised funds in support of pediatric mental health. Support from generous donors will launch a revolutionary hospital-wide program to address the impact of pain on mental health of children and youth, expand current mental health programs and bring expertise to underserved communities in BC.

“Only one in every five kids receives the mental health services they need,” said Teri Nicholas, BC Children’s Hospital Foundation President and CEO. “That needs to change, and there is no better time than now. The recent opening of the Teck Acute Care Centre marks a new era of care, for BC’s kids and will heal children in body, mind, and spirit. Funds from Crystal Ball will bring vital mental health programs to more children and youth – and in their own communities.”

Inspired by the healing power of nature, the event invited guests into a spectacular wilderness setting, reflecting the West Coast imagery in the newly opened Teck Acute Care Centre. The forest decor reflected the four pillars of strength, growth, support, and community. Since its inception, the Crystal Ball has raised almost $28 million for BC Children’s Hospital.

Thank you to our generous sponsors for making the Crystal Ball possible.
