Each year, over 3,300 children get admitted to BC Children’s Hospital from Vancouver Island, which is over 9 kids per day. This amazing organization also provides much-needed support for the families of sick kids.  

Tickets for the event include a Pre-Tea Social Mixer in the Palm Court, Welcome Cocktail, Afternoon Tea and Fashion Show with reserved table seating. VIP tickets include a private VIP Bubble Reception in the Library, Pre-Tea Social Mixer in the Palm Court, Welcome Cocktail, VIP swag bag and front of runway reserved table seating in the Fairmont Empress’ iconic Crystal Ballroom.
