On March 21, 2014 - Pajama's for a day help keep the doctor away!
The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada, Alberta & N.W.T Chapter, is launching its first ever pajama day to unite Alberta in support of wish granting for children with life threatening illnesses. Spend just one day in your pajamas to make a difference in the life of a child!
The behind the scenes reality of making heartfelt wishes come true for deserving children is the unseen everyday battle these children face, often fighting for survival to overcome their illness in the hopes of rejoining their friends and family as a strong and healthy child. Often the circumstances of their illness keep many of them bed ridden for extended periods of time.
Pajama day is your opportunity to honour the strength of these children, and everyone from elementary schools to university students, local businesses to community groups are aked to get involved.
This outrageous event puts a fun new spin on the art of table service, and this year guests will be transported to the Las Vegas strip! Local celebrities and distinguished members of the Edmonton community will be your waiters for the evening, not only to wait on you but to entertain you as well.
