Fourth Annual Promise of Home Gala Raises $55,000

On October 26, 2018, Canterbury Foundation, surrounded by a full house of Sponsors, Partners, Honored Guests, friends, and family, celebrated our Fourth Annual Promise of Home Fundraising Gala.

 The event was held at the DoubleTree by Hilton West Edmonton, hosted by Emcee's Seanna Collins and Rob Christie! We hope you enjoy a selection of these photos from what was an absolutely wonderful evening.

A tremendous thank you from the entire Canterbury Foundation family to those that were able to join us for this fabulous evening in support of our Community Outreach Program. Because of your presence and support, we were able to successfully raise $55,000 for our Community Outreach Program; our program that aims to provide a holistic approach to care through the services offered by a Social Worker and a Spiritual Care Chaplain. The event would not have been possible without your presence and tremendous support, so we thank you.
