Children’s Wish Teddy Bear Toss

The Cause

Have you ever heard of Children’s Wish? How about an AirBand competition? Air guitars and Lip synching to your favourite songs and getting to be a Rock star on a real stage!
As an entertainment company, we come up with new and exciting ideas for our clients. We developed an AirBand competition for companies as team building events, and last year we decided that we could use the concept for fundraising and we chose Children’s Wish as our charity of choice.
In partnership with The Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation and the Calgary Hitmen, we will be designating a signature hockey game (tentative game: October 14) directly in honour of Children’s Wish and our Air Band event.

Like the Teddy Bear Toss game, we will have a game that will have a pre-game AirBand competition and will have corporate companies sign up to sell tickets to their “Groupies” and have sections of the arena specific to them. At the first intermission, we will have the winner of the pre-game competition play ON THE ICE in front of the arena. During the second intermission we will reveal a Wish to a designated Wish Kid.

Who Will it Benefit?

Children’s Wish provides wishes for children who are terminally ill, have had a life-threatening illness or a serious neurological or genetic condition.

Each wish costs approximately $10,000 and across Canada Children’s Wish grants an average of three wishes per day. Each chapter has the responsibility to fundraise for their region, so all the monies collected will be focused in the area that that chapter. For the Calgary chapter that covers, Alberta and Northwest Territories.

Children’s Wish has a “no waiting list” policy and they make any wish the child wants to come true.
An average Hitmen game has 5,000 – 7,000 attendees.
