Our 6th Annual Restaurant Fundraiser

It’s Easy to Donate – Just Eat at a Participating Restaurant!

On March 7, 2019, enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner – eat in, take out or delivery – at a participating restaurant and 10% of your bill for food and non-alcoholic beverages (excluding tax and tip) will automatically be donated to the Learning Disabilities Association of Alberta, Red Deer Chapter.

All you have to do is eat and enjoy! And why not take a pic of your plate yourself or your group, and share it to our Facebook or Twitter page. Bonus marks for including a DOFL table card or poster in the pic!

Thank you to all restaurants for supporting Dine Out for Learning! We encourage everyone in Red Deer and area to support these restaurants – and what a lot to choose from!

Go for your favourites, or try something NEW for breakfast, lunch, dinner or late night!

After 15 years as a TV reporter with Global and CBC and as news director of RDTV in Red Deer, Duane set out on his own 2008 as a visual storyteller. During this period, he became fascinated with a burgeoning online world and how it could better serve local communities. This fascination led to Todayville, launched in 2016.

29th Annual Festival of Trees

It’s time to experience the magic of Festival of Trees! Celebrate at Festival of Wines, be enchanted by Mistletoe Magic, and enjoy family fun at the all new Festival Pancake Breakfast.

For the last 28 years, Festival of Trees has raised funds for healthcare enhancements for the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre and other health centres in Central Alberta.

2022: FUNDING THE INTENSIVE CARE AND CARDIAC CARE UNITS AT RED DEER REGIONAL HOSPITAL CENTRE.

As the only facility in Central Zone with Intensive Care and Coronary Care beds, Red Deer Hospital will be creating a permanent space for CCU and expanding its ICU beds by 8, for a total of 20 ICU beds. Our healthcare system needs more capacity, and this expansion is the first step in responding to the increased demand for high-quality care for patients in the ICU and CCU.

Cardiac enhancements and expansion of bed space have been a longstanding priority for our hospital, and Festival of Trees is thrilled to support the equipment needs in these new spaces by providing CPAP/BI-PAP machines, ultrasound systems, Glidescopes, and much more.
