Purple Day by Night 2023

On March 9, 2023, the Epilepsy Association of Calgary hosted it’s second annual fundraising gala Purple Day by Night. All proceeds support the development and launch of new community-based pediatric epilepsy programs, supports, and education.

With over 230 attendees, this was the biggest event in our history and we’ve raised a record $70,000 so far — nearly doubling our total from last year!

Thank you to this year’s Honorary Chairs Kelly Hrudey, NHL legend and Broadcaster, and his daughter Jess Ling. Together, they shared their own journey with pediatric epilepsy, through their family member Maverick, age 4.

Our evening featured music from Alex Hughes, live paintings from local artists Mandy Stobo, Dean Stanton, Artrophy, Kyla Alty, Yanina Eberhard, and Keely Sorette, hors d’oeuvres catered by Alvin’s Jazz Club, an online silent auction, and more!

Thank you to our generous sponsors, supporters, donors, and volunteers for making Purple Day by Night 2023 another success – so more Albertans can live well with epilepsy.
