“What’s your why?” – sponsors share why they give


Industrial Metals – Flower Power Stage

Industrial Metals, a Winnipeg-based metal recycler, is generously sponsoring the stage at Ice Crystal Gala.

Since 2017 Industrial Metals has been supporting kids who need treatment and care as an Ice Crystal Gala sponsor. Dan and Josh Chisick, brothers and partners at Industrial Metals, say it has always been important for their company to give back.

“We have always felt that giving back to the community is our responsibility, but also a privilege. Supporting such a worthwhile cause and knowing that families will receive care when they need it most is a great feeling.”

Industrial Metals employs upwards of 100 people in its mission to divert useful materials from the landfill, and the whole team is passionate about helping #GiveBetterFutures to families in hospital.

“That is potentially 100 families that may, at some point, require HSC Children’s Hospital. Knowing that we continue to support the Foundation is very important to our team.”

The Chisick family looks forward to attending Ice Crytal Gala with their all their children.

“We have both been extremely fortunate that none of our kids have needed HSC Children’s, but we are acutely aware that many families do.  By supporting the Foundation, families in need are able to continue to rely on HSC Children’s when they need it most.”


CPKC – Nifty Children’s World 

Canadian Pacific Kansas City (CPKC), one of Canada’s most iconic companies, is sponsoring the Nifty Children’s World at Ice Crystal Gala.

The Foundation is thankful for CPKC’s ongoing support, as it has been helping sick and injured kids through Ice Crystal Gala for more than six years.

Funding critical health care and life-changing research to extend lives and impact quality of life is a significant part of how CPKC gives back to the communities it serves. The team at CPKC says Winnipeg is an important terminal in their network.

“It’s vital to us to invest in the communities we operate in and through to ensure that we are a good neighbour and a good member of the communities. We are proud to aid Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba in ensuring the best care is possible for the kids of Manitoba.”

Proceeds from the 2023 Ice Crystal Gala will go towards the Better Futures campaign, which is already transforming child health care and research through projects like the new Travis Price Children’s Heart Centre.

CPKC team members in Winnipeg look forward to attending Ice Crystal Gala and are proud to represent their company at the event.


The North West Company – Boogie Down Desserts

Ice Crystal Gala’s delicious deserts are is generously sponsored by The North West Company (NWC) – a leading retailer serving rural and urban markets.

The Foundation is deeply grateful to have NWC return as a sponsor for the third year. The NWC says giving back to the communities it serves is a core part of the organization’s identity.

“We believe the Children’s Hospital Foundation’s work to help kids across Manitoba, Northwestern Ontario and Nunavut – areas in which NWC also serves – plays an important role in increasing access to health services and supports for children in need. We’re especially excited about the Foundation’s commitment to ReconcilACTION, which is very much in line with our own recent Promise to Indigenous Peoples.”

Funds raised at Ice Crystal Gala will go towards the Better Futures campaign to transform child health care and research, improving the lives of more than 140,000 kids across Manitoba, Northwestern Ontario and Nunavut who rely on HSC Children’s and Children’s Hospital Research Institute each year.

NWC is looking forward to the event to #GiveBetterFutures for families.

“We are very excited to attend this year’s Ice Crystal Gala and spend some time getting groovy!”


Urbanmine – Stellar Speaker Sponsor

Ice Crystal Gala’s stellar speakers are brought to you by Urbanmine, a family-run company that’s redefining metal recycling in Manitoba.

The Foundation is deeply grateful that Urbanmine has been supporting families in hospital for more than five years in many ways, including sponsoring gala events and making generous gifts to Fund the Need.

President, Adam Chisick says giving back is valued at Urbanmine.

“We feel part of the reason Urbanmine has a wonderful and growing team of talented people is that we believe in giving back to our community,” says Adam.

Adam says helping kids in hospital is important to his family.

“We have many kids in our family and throughout the Urbanmine team and are very grateful that we have the children’s hospital to rely on should we ever need it.”

Proceeds from this year’s Ice Crystal Gala will go towards the Better Futures campaign, Manitoba’s largest ever donor-driven campaign in support of child health.

The Urbanmine family is looking forward to attending Ice Crystal Gala to help #GiveBetterFutures for families in hospital.

“It’s always a great feeling to be together in a room full of people who are all there to support a great cause.”
