What is it?
Renaissance Edmonton Airport Hotel is excited to host the first ever Bed-Break in support of the Edmonton Firefighter’s Burn Treatment Society. On March 5th, 2020, we’ll have ten of our best partners, clients, and friends retire to a cot set up in our ballroom where they’ll be forced to lay until they raise our goal of $100,000. While they’re stuck in bed, we’ll have a festival of flavours, sounds, and sips set up throughout the ballroom. Guests can show their support by donating towards their favourite prisoner, indulging in our award-winning culinary stations or cocktail bars, or just showing up to this FREE 18+ event open to the public!
Who is EFBTS?
The Edmonton Firefighter's Burn Treatment Society has raised funds and awareness for research, treatment, and the recovery of thermal injuries since 1977. The burn treatment unit is where you will find highly educated, strongly motivated, extremely caring, and dedicated individuals who give of themselves to the burn survivors and their families when they need it. EFBTS has treated over 10,000 children and adults in Western and Northern Canada.
Okay, but why?
This fundraiser will help send youth to the Alberta Fire Fighter Burn camp where they experience adventure, learn to harness their abilities, and create unforgettable friendships. But we want to take this one step further and help bring the burn treatment society into the future. With technology ever advancing, an opportunity for pain management for children has become available. Due to their age, developing bodies, and tolerances, children are, unfortunately, unable to use a lot of the pain management solutions, such as drugs, that are available. However, the tech world has helped solve this. Virtual Reality Goggles trick the child's mind into displacing themselves from the current situation, allowing them to place themselves anywhere else they'd rather be than dealing with debriding their burns. These goggles are extremely costly, BUT RenC.A.R.E.S. has a goal in mind!
How can you help?
We are looking for corporate sponsors to sponsor a bed and go head-to-head in our corporate challenge to take their team to the luxurious Renaissance bed. But don’t get too comfortable – firefighter games will determine who gets to lay in luxury. But if you can't help their, we have other opportunities available as well! We’re looking for contributions from the business community in the form of silent auction item donations or vendor booths. 100% of the proceeds of the sponsorships and donations will go to EFBTS and provide great exposure for your organisation. Meeting our goal would not be possible without support from our amazing community.
So, will you help send a burn survivor to camp?
