People looking for a great Halloween party supporting a great cause! We invite you to dress up for Halloween and enjoy a great evening of delectable chef creations, dancing, live entertainment, silent & live auction, raffles and some surprises.

Your favourite Halloween costume. Prize awarded for the best costume.

Your ticket includes mouth watering foods prepared by five talented Marriott chefs. Each chef will create their own “sweet & savory” showcase. These food dishes are not intended to provide you with a dinner. You will get a sampling of the dishes each chef prepares.

All regular tickets are $100 per person.
Premiere groupings of 10 can get raised soft seating for $1,500.

Dreams Take Flight Calgary historically holds our annual fundraising event, Black Tie & Blue Jeans, on the first weekend of the Calgary Stampede. Due to uncertainty earlier this year, we decided to move our 2022 event to the Halloween weekend, renaming the event to “Black Tie & Boo Jeans”. We look forward to hearing your feedback about the new changes during the event.

We hope you will join us for a fun evening!

About Us

Making a difference to children with special needs in Southern Alberta!

Dreams Take Flight stretches children’s minds. As poet Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote, “One’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.”

Dreams Take Flight is a registered national non-profit charity dedicated to providing the trip-of-a-lifetime to medically, mentally, physically, socially or emotionally challenged children in Canada.

Dreams Take Flight Calgary has been taking deserving children with special needs from Southern Alberta to Disneyland since 1993. We raise our funding through corporate and private donations, charity golf tournaments and this annual Black Tie & Blue Jeans gala event. We are a 100% volunteer charity with volunteers handling fundraising, flight planning, administration and governance. Air Canada donates the aircraft, but the ground crew, flight crew and other services required for the flight are volunteers. Our amazing medical team are volunteers as well!

With your support we can bring some magic to some very deserving Southern Alberta children and make their dreams come true.

For a very long and exciting day, deserving children live an adventure in at Disneyland, with all expenses paid—thanks to sponsors and volunteers.

When they land back home, their minds are stretched to new dimensions. They see new possibilities.
