Welcome to the Fundraising page of


ALIVE is a weekend long music festival that includes camping, vendors, beer gardens, children's activities and tons of talented band's covering a wide variety of musical genres. This event started as a way to remember the life of a local child, Ashley, who would be 12 this year. Join us for a celebration of life in honour for those of us who made it this far, hence the name, "ALIVE!"

This festival is taking place at the coombs rodeo grounds in beautiful coombs BC. It starts Friday, August 9, and goes through Sunday August 11. The show starts Friday at 2 and runs until 10, with family friendly music on the main,outside stage, and heavier stuff playing on the inside stage. At 11 pm both Friday and Saturday we run a dance on the inside stage until 1 am. Sorry, but no minors inside after 11. Saturday the show starts at 11 am and runs until 10, with both stages doing the same as Friday. Sunday is an open jam for anyone who eitherdidnt get to play, or wants to play a bit more. We're keeping the heavier music indoors so the event is fun for all ages and tastes.

Tickets are available at the gate, and we are asking for a suggested donation of $25 for one day day, and $40 for the weekend. Anyone who can only make it for Sunday can just make a donation attention gate.

Every element that makes BC Children's Hospital so important to BC's kids would not be possible without the generosity of our supporters and friends. From the tiniest toy that puts a smile on a youngster's face to the groundbreaking pediatric research that's helping to find better treatments and cures for many devastating childhood diseases, your donation helps ensure that the most precious members of our society - our children - receive the best possible care.

On behalf of all of us - patients, parents, staff, and volunteers - from BC Children's Hospital, thank you for your generosity and for caring for our children and their future.
