Gala to Raise Awareness About Brain Injuries

The Brain Awareness Movement (BAM) is a student-led club at the University of Alberta. This group works closely with two local charities in Edmonton – the Brain Care Centre and the Networks Activity Centre – to support victims of traumatic brain injuries and their families. They also work within the community and on campus to advocate and educate the public regarding the prevalence of brain injuries in Alberta and their preventability.

BAM will be hosting their 10th annual “Big BAM Gala,” their largest fundraising event of the year, at Meridian Banquet Hall (4820 76 Avenue) on February 21st at 6:30 p.m.. This fundraising event has a typical attendance of over 150 people and consists of a dinner, speakers, live performances, and a silent auction. This event will be open to members of the public, including those in the community and across campus. The ultimate goal of the gala is to raise awareness about brain injuries.

Tickets are $25 (early bird; $30 at the door). Anyone interested can email bamclub@ualberta.ca to reserve a ticket to purchase on the day of the event for the early bird price.
