Join us at the Gala on Thursday, November 23, 2023

Presented by

The University Hospital Foundation’s Festival of Trees Gala is returning for it’s 39th year, and we are bringing back long-time festival favourites.  

Join us at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 23, 2023 at the Edmonton Convention Centre for an elevated evening of fine dining and fantastic fundraising. Featured at this year’s Gala will be a delectable five-course menu designed by Executive Chef, Serge Belair, live entertainment, a silent auction, exclusive live auction items and networking opportunities. 

This event is 18+. Tickets can be purchased in tables of ten as well as a limited number of individual tickets. Each table purchase is eligible for a $4,050 charitable tax receipt. Each individual ticket is eligible for a $405 charitable tax receipt. 

This year, your Gala ticket purchase will support two areas of innovation at the University of Alberta Hospital: 

  • With a new, state-of-the-art Simulation (SIM) Lab, our healthcare teams will be able to practice, refine, and practice again every step of every procedure and interaction under every condition imaginable.
  • Remodelling the Fourth Floor Atrium into an inclusive space of peace and comfort will provide patients, family members, staff and physicians alike a chance to step away from the high-intensity hospital environment. 

Supporting two causes with one Festival

Your support of the Festival of Trees impacts two important causes that will impact healthcare teams and patients today, and for years to come. Help us reach our goal of raising $2.4 million towards the creation of a state-of-the-art Simulation Centre and the transformation of the Fourth Floor Atrium.
