Art of Caring

As a Winter Family Ball guest, you and your family are invited to join us for the Art of Caring – a fun and creative pre-Ball event where children are inspired to consider what’s possible when our hearts are open.  Through art activities, and an exploration of the theme of ‘filling your bucket’, children will explore the idea that no one is too small to have a positive impact on the people around them.  We hope you will join us!

Date: October 20, 2019
Location: Hollyburn Country Club
Time:  2:00-4:00 pm
All Winter Family Ball tickets purchased prior to October 18, 2019 include free admission to the Art of Caring.

The Winter Family Ball is my kids and our favourite night of the year. We love the energy and feeling of engaging with our friends to support our community. It’s a special and unique opportunity to have our children be a part of giving back and understanding that we all must support each other to feel whole.– Winter Family Ball guest
