Calgary Flames at North Hill Centre

Event "Celebrity Gift Wrap at North Hill Centre"

Raising Awareness and Funds for Cystic Fibrosis Canada

CALGARY, Dec. 7, 2011 /CNW/ - North Hill Centre will be hosting our 4th Annual "Celebrity Gift Wrap" to benefit Cystic Fibrosis Canada, Calgary and Southern Alberta Chapter. North Hill Centre is committed to helping Cystic Fibrosis Canada "Breath Life into the Future" for children with cystic fibrosis and their families.

North Hill Centre is a Cystic Fibrosis Canada program partner, actively supporting this charity throughout the year. One of the highlights of our gift wrap by donation program will be:

  • Calgary Flames - Gift Wrapping -  Friday, Dec 9 from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm
  • Players: Brendan Morrison and JT Brodie

As part of our fundraising, North Hill Centre will be sponsoring raffles, silent auctions and Jelly Beans for a Cure each day. Our Jelly Beans for a Cure campaign has been ongoing during 2010 and 2011 and the number of jelly beans in each decorative jar represents the minimum number of prescription drugs a child with cystic fibrosis must take each day. They make a thoughtful gift and to date we have raised over $2,500 and created awareness of one of the challenges a child with Cystic Fibrosis lives with on a daily basis.

100% of all proceeds from our fundraising activities go to Cystic Fibrosis Canada.

Cystic Fibrosis is a multi-organ disease, primarily affecting the lungs and digestive system. Cystic Fibrosis causes severe breathing problems making it difficult to clear bacteria from the lungs, leading to cycles of infection and inflammation, which damages the delicate lung tissue. There is no cure.

However, thanks to ongoing research and developments in treatments, the life expectancy of a child with Cystic Fibrosis has increased from 5 years of age to 40 and beyond.

It would be great to see you and thanks for your consideration.
