Since the program started in 2013, we have received hundreds of suite donations. Thank you donors!
With the endorsement of the Calgary Flames and the Saddledome Executive Suite department, the Kids Up Front Foundation has been able to continue our Suite Ambassador Program. Suite donations are the most exciting and memorable experiences for the kids and families, and with your help, we would love to be able to provide even more of these VIP experiences this season! We understand the apprehensions and concerns with donating your privately owned suite to group of deserving, yet unknown people.
Our Kids Up Front office has recognized and appreciates these hesitations, so we created the Suite Ambassador Program. This program ensures there will be Kids Up Front representatives in every suite that is donated. Our ambassador’s role is to ensure your suite is well respected and supervised as the event goes on. We understand that these suites are expensive investments and that they need to be well kept by our guests.
Kids Up Front Ambassadors have been trained on suite processes and expectations, and join the selected group at the event for the entire length of the event. Our Ambassadors will meet the selected group prior to the beginning of the event, and outline any special considerations for your suite that evening. Ambassadors will then usher the group to your suite, and stay with the group for the duration of the event and will be the last person to leave.
These suite donations are incredibly generous and Kids Up Front wants to uphold our end of the partnership by respecting the space, and provide our donors with a reassurance that their investments are well looked after. It is our hope that this program will entice first time suite donors to choose Kids Up Front Calgary to provide exceptional memories for some very deserving children and families.
Because of the time that goes into organizing groups and volunteers to attend games in these suites, we have a suite donation cut-off of noon the day before the event for Flames, Roughnecks and concerts. However, you can always contact us to check if we have a need for certain suites if you have missed the deadline. For Hitmen suites we have a donation cut-off of 48 hours before the game, or Wednesday afternoon for weekend games.
Our kids are affected by poverty, abuse, illness, and disability. Some are newcomers to Canada. They endure trying conditions, sometimes without any family support, and they need the magic created by your ticket and suite donations!
Tax receipts can be given for all suite donations if requested!
Kids Up Front appreciates your consideration surrounding your suite donation. If you have any questions regarding the details of this program please feel free to contact Landon Wesley at 403.444.4318 Ext 1 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to donate.
