Cerebral Palsy Alberta puts on several events each year, allowing us to connect with our community and celebrate the accomplishments of our organization, as well as the successes of our members. Fundraising at our events allows us to continue to offer programs and services and enable people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities to live a Life without Limits.
We encourage everyone to get involved with our annual events where you can enjoy the company of other members, supporters, and volunteers. Thank you to the individuals, groups, and companies who contribute financially and donate items to our events, and to our volunteers who donate their time and expertise in making our events successful.

OCTOBER 3RD, 2020
Cerebral Palsy Alberta held its first gala in 2007 in an effort to raise funds and awareness for individuals with cerebral palsy and other disabilities. With the success of the gala, it quickly became an annual event. Each year our guests look forward to a new and exciting theme and can count on great entertainment and spectacular chef-inspired menus prepared by local artisan chefs. The Gala never disappoints and has successfully raised much-needed funds for the CPAA’s programs and services. This fundraiser would not be possible without our countless volunteers, supporters, donors, and sponsors. If you would like to participate as a donor or volunteer, please contact:

The Hush Gala embraces a different theme each year and will be celebrated at a secret location that will only be revealed to our guests as clues and details are slowly released. Enjoy a champagne reception, time-honoured chef-created gourmet meal, exciting entertainment and the opportunity to bid on fabulous live and silent auction items.

FROM THE HEART
For the past 20 years the CPAA has partnered with 2 local special needs schools in the City of Calgary providing gifts to children aged 5 – 15 with cerebral palsy at Christmas so that they can enjoy the Spirit of the Season. Gifts include stuffed animals, sensory toys and other items which are specifically chosen depending on the child’s disability. For many of these children this is the only gift that they’ll receive as many of these families live in poverty. There is a tremendous cost to raising a child with a disability – specialized equipment, clothing and necessities come with a big price tag! This is a program that will brighten their holidays and bring smiles to the faces of these special children.
