This May, the Vancouver Aquarium hosted its 15th annual Dreamnight. Each year, over 1,000 children with life-threatening illnesses are invited to experience the aquarium with their families. It’s a magical night of connecting with aquatic animals and having fun in a beautiful setting, away from hospital beds and daily challenges.
This year, the Children’s Heart Network was able to send 60 families (over 275 people) to Dreamnight. Highlights included playing with creatures in the Wet Lab and taking part in sing-alongs, arts and crafts, face painting, and a magic show. There were snacks and treats, and everyone received a swag bag to take home!
Thank you to the Vancouver Aquarium for spoiling our kids! It was a memorable way for our heart families to connect and support each other! ♥
