Since its inception in 1987 the Crystal Ball, an annual black-tie fundraising gala in support of BC Children's Hospital, has grown to become the premier fundraising gala for child health in British Columbia and one of the most exclusive holiday events in Vancouver.  

Your participation in the Crystal Ball is helping make the dream of better care for generations of BC kids a reality through the Campaign for BC Children, supporting a new BC Children's Hospital.

Planned and organized by a talented and dedicated committee of volunteers, the Crystal Ball promises to be an extravagant evening. Guests will first enjoy a champagne reception followed by a four course dinner prepared by Four Seasons' Executive Chef. Fundraising activities will include a silent and live auction and the ever popular jewelry raffle.
