Join Craft Cellars for our Starry Night Virtual Whisky Festival in support of The Alberta Children’s Hospital and the Matteo Shafer Legacy Fund.
Since the first Starry Night Whisky & Wine Festival in 2017, over $150,000 has been raised. This has facilitated the acquisition of vital equipment such as an Ultrasound unit and speciality beds for children in need. The event was started in memory of Matteo, a member of our extended family, who passed away from brain cancer at the age of 9. Matteo’s parents created The Starry Night Fundraiser and Matteo Shafer Legacy Fund to keep his memory alive and to help other children like Matteo. The focus of our fundraiser this year is the ACTION Project – Alberta Cellular Therapy and Immune Oncology Initiative. The ACTION team will focus on developing next-generation cellular immunotherapies – a new form of cancer treatment that harnesses a child’s own immune system to tackle their particular cancer.
