Light Up The Night Gala Luau
A night to support health care in Airdrie

Dust off your grass skirt and join us for an unforgettable Luau fundraising gala, filled with vibrant music, tropical cuisine, and enchanting entertainment!

The Airdrie Health Foundation was created after a five-year-old boy named Lane, suddenly became ill during the night. With the absence of 24-hour emergency medical care in Airdrie, Lane’s parents were not able to access the help they needed to save their son. No family should have to deal with such a profound loss. A dangerous trip to the Didsbury Hospital in a massive snow storm a year later to seek care for another child, led the Bates family on a journey to prevent other families from such tragedies.

Co-founder, Michelle Bates and the AHF, alongside strong community voices, worked to successfully have Urgent Care become a 24-hour service on April 3, 2017. A significant milestone for the health of our community.

We are very grateful for our community support and look forward to celebrating success together at this fun and unique event!
