Beer Tasting and Silent Auction for the Epilepsy Program

When? June 9, 2022
Where? Wild Rose Brewery

There are over 3000 children seen each year at the Alberta Children’s Hospital for epilepsy. There are a number of different treatment options ranging from medications, to diets, to brain surgery and more. The hospital is in the process of rebuilding an epilepsy program to support the rapid increase in children diagnosed with epilepsy annually. Your donation will help to support that growth.

With guest speakers, Dr. Julia Jacobs Levan, Epileptologist, and Dr. Walter Hader, Neurosurgeon, you will learn how you can help with the growth of this new Epilepsy Program. Also, hear the story of one mom who has been living with a child dealing with “uncontrolled” epilepsy for 5 years.

$100 from every ticket sold will go directly to the Epilepsy Program. Your ticket will include appetizers, a beer tasting and guided tour of Wild Rose Brewery, as well as a silent auction.

A big thanks goes out to our sponsors, the “It’s Sold Team” with Century 21 and Wild Rose Brewery.
