UP & Away Charity Gala

The Kindred UP Gala, powered by the Unlocking Potential (UP) Foundation, is our premier fundraising event, and this year, we are focusing on making a difference to the growing number of children and youth experiencing mental health issues.

  • 59% of young people aged 18-24 feel stressed, up from 38% in 2022. 42% of these young people don’t have access to mental health support.

Kindred helps thousands of Calgarians in building better lives for themselves and their loved ones; we welcome you to be the change at the Kindred UP Gala. For more information on tickets, sponsorships and silent auction, click for more details.

Countdown to the 2024 UP & Away Charity Gala








Because of my growth through my time at Louise Dean Centre I don’t worry what my family dynamic will be. I feel positive and confident when I say I am ready for what life throws at me next, I am prepared to face challenges, break cycles and build more positive connections as life goes forward. My family will have a future we are proud of and I can be the me I want my son to see.
