Helping Kids Soar Gala

24th Annual Helping Kids Soar Gala

Renfrew’s Charity Gala is one of Calgary’s premiere charity fundraising events. Over the years, this event has raised over $7.5 million for school buildings, buses, specialized rooms, adaptive equipment and specialized programs and services. This year’s Gala will be held on March 9, 2023, at the Westin Calgary (320 4 Ave SW). Money raised will go toward our new school in Bearspaw.

We would love for you to become a sponsor at our event. For enquiries about sponsorship opportunities, contact Janice McTighe, Executive Director,, 403.219.5388. For those of you who have supported us in the past we greatly appreciated your support and ask that you consider becoming a sponsor for this year’s event.

Because of You

As you know, our 23rd Annual Gala was cancelled due to COVID-19 and because of that, we were unable to premiere our Because of You video at our Gala. Please take a few minutes to get a glimpse into life at Renfrew and meet a few of the truly amazing children we are lucky enough to work with every day.
