Every year W. Brett Wilson chooses a different cause to celebrate – in terms of raising awareness and funds – via the Garden Party. The focus this year was Adolescent Mental Health and over $400,000 was raised.
As always, 100% of these funds will directly benefit four worthwhile charities who are working hard to end the stigma and deal with the root causes of Mental Health challenges: Canadian Mental Health Association, Juno Foundation, Calgary Counselling Centre and Wood’s Homes.
A special thanks to Cowtown Opera, Jocelyn Alice, Don Amero, Corb Lund and Brett Kissel – the artists who collectively made the evening memorable. And a very special thank you to Paige Power for sharing her experiences and challenges in the world of Mental Health.
