YOUR SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY

As we continue to live with COVID, we've designed and implemented safety measures throughout the gala experience, to ensure the safety of our guests while also accommodating for diverse comfort levels.

> Vaccine & COVID-test verification upon entry

> Mandatory masking throughout event floor (except at personal tables)

> Refined program with priority to on-stage entertainment options

> Queuing and staggering guests for on-the-floor entertainment stations

> Tabled seating for you and your cohort, with a minimum 2-ft distance between tables

> Lowered capacity to 300 people

We will respect all networking comfort levels -- whether you prefer to stay seated at your cohort table, or to mingle around and see what we have for you on the floor.

REFUND POLICY

We'll be offering refunds in the extreme event that we cancel the gala completely.

We're keeping a close eye on the rising cases and how the situation is progressing. We have already post-poned the event from an earlier date, and have chosen May 6, 2022 as the new date.

Right now, we're hopeful that the situation improves in the spring, and we're doing everything we can to ensure a safe, successful event.

HIGHLIGHTS OF DISTRICT OF DREAMS 2019

In 2019, Kids Up Front Edmonton hosted its very first District of Dreams gala with one goal: to show this city the power behind the kind of access we provide to local, deserving children and families through our programs.

We welcomed close to 400 guests, and raised over $220,000.

We featured a dance floor and live music from the Oil City Sound Machine and DJ Harman B.

The floor was filled with 8 entertainment stations from partners including Bioware, Edmonton Elks, FC Edmonton, and the Oil Kings, nearly 200 amazing items in our silent and live auctions, delicious food and drinks catered by the JW Marriott, vibrant conversations among the city's who's who, and much, much MORE.

WHAT ELSE TO EXPECT THIS YEAR...

This year, we've made some changes. We've added special guests, features and pizzaz!

We can't give TOO much away, so here's a taste:

> Stage-takeovers including performances by a magician and a dance group

> On-the-floor entertainment options including a caricaturist, wine lottery, games with our local partners, and more

> a live band, 3 additional musical guests and DJ performing a variety of music all night long

> Personalized tables for you and your cohort to rest, eat and have a home base

and more!

WHY DISTRICT OF DREAMS?

Imagine a world in which all kids have access to fun, enriching experiences. Kids Up Front Edmonton does too – every day.

Our purpose is to create joy, promote inclusion and strengthen communities by providing access to fun, enriching experiences.

Essentially, we make sure that fun is accessible for all children and families in our community, because fun is an important part of healthy childhoods and joyful, inclusive communities.

With something as simple as going out for the evening, you are showing up for our community. You may not realize it but every registration counts. You are helping our local economy to flourish by giving back and supporting our community. Ultimately, by showing up, you're helping provide children and families the opportunity to thrive and meet their full potential.

Through our standalone initiatives as well as our work with over 200+ social agencies in Edmonton, Kids Up Front opens the door for deserving children and youth to experiences in arts, culture, sports, recreation and… well… wherever their talents and imagination take them.

We hope to continue our mandate with your support.
