Celebrating our 20th year!

With our 20th year, the Gala has raised over $1 million dollars to support children living with congenital heart disease and their families. Your support helps provide more than 600 families through creating more memories and family support.

When families are given the diagnosis, it is a devastating and difficult time. We provide support by giving those those newly diagnosed a chance to connect with other families that have been in the same position. We aspire to create memories for families and new found friends in the heart community to last for their entire lives.


What's new this year

Our gala promises a vibrant atmosphere with a talented DJ to keep the dance floor bumping! Witness touching dedications and be part of a significant moment as we unveil our new Heart Hero Award. 

This year, we are proud to introduce the inaugural Heart Hero Award, a special recognition to an individual who has shown exceptional dedication to our cause. 

In appreciation for your support, each gala ticket holder will be treated to an extraordinary gift: a distinctive Tesla overnight experience, generously donated by Tesla.

Your presence and support will make this evening truly memorable as we come together to make a difference in the lives of children with heart conditions.

We look forward to sharing this remarkable night with you.

Organized by
Children's Heart Network of BC
Working together throughout BC…“to enhance through education and support, the lives of children, youth and families who are living with congenital or acquired heart disease.” Established in 1983, the Children’s Heart Network (CHN) is a provincial charitable. Approximately 1 in every 100 children born has some form of CHD. Approximately 500 children are diagnosed each year in BC with heart disease. Half of these children will require medical intervention. With innovative medical and surgical techniques, most children with heart disease have every opportunity to lead full and productive lives. The CHN hosts events and camps that allow children and their parents to connect and support each other as they travel long their heart journey. In addition, we provide education sessions, support groups and CPR training for parents and care-givers.
