Event description
We are delighted to host the 72nd Grand Highland Military Ball on Saturday, May 7th, 2022 at The Fairmont Palliser.

About this event

The 72nd Grand Highland Military Ball takes place at Calgary’s Fairmont Palliser on Saturday, May 7, 2022 and I think you will agree, we are all looking forward to getting back to celebrating in-person, especially as we enjoy this traditional and formal dinner and dance. An extraordinary event for the past 72 years, we have served as one of our city’s longest standing events celebrating Calgary’s infantry regiment and their service to Canada and our community.

We want you to be a central part of this exceptional event and we’re grateful for all donations. We will provide you tickets to the event while keeping sponsor recognition a focus in our stewardship for all our esteemed sponsors. In the unlikely event that the Ball is cancelled, for any reason, we will provide alternative forms of donor recognition.

This remarkable Ball supports the Calgary Highlanders Regimental Funds Foundation (CHRFF) by allowing us to sustain the men and women of the Calgary Highlanders and their families. As Canadians we have all faced a challenging year and a half with the pandemic affecting our daily lives and like you, these soldiers have committed to proudly serve their community while continuing to be very active throughout these challenging times.

We recently had 25 soldiers and officers in Latvia as part of the continued mission of NATO support in that country and have also had Highlanders in Iraq and Ukraine. Closer to home, we have had over 60 soldiers ready for Alberta’s military pandemic response.

Whether it is care packages sent to our soldiers in Latvia, funds to support our leaders of tomorrow through the cadet program, or essential funds to help our family association’s needs, the Foundation is proud to provide for these remarkable citizen-soldiers. The Foundation’s Board are all volunteers and are so grateful for your generosity as we serve with passion and purpose.

Tickets for the 72nd Grand Highland Military Ball are available with a donation to the CHRFF. We gratefully welcome donations in any amount to the CHRFF. For donations under $1,000, if you would like to attend the ball, please indicate your interest and we will make every effort to accommodate your request. Tickets are $225.00 per person including GST.
