Official Fundraising Agent
The Annual ‘GingerCane’ Gingerbread Design Competition is hosted, and contributions collected by KR Evans 2 Design Group Ltd (E2 or Evans 2 Design Group) in Calgary, AB CANADA (www.evans2design.com). E2 acts as an Official third-party Fundraiser under an Agency Agreement with the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation, the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation and the Children’s Hospital Foundations of Manitoba.
Terms of Participation
Teams are invited to participate in the competition by building a Gingerbread house design entry and their supporters are invited to contribute financially to the campaign by ‘voting with their dollars’ for the entry of their choice. Every dollar counts as one vote.
The GingerCane Contest is organized from our home city of Calgary, Alberta. The contest intent is to provide a fun & engaging means of raising money for children’s hospital charities while bringing the home building industry together. The money raised for each team will go to the children’s hospital foundation in the jurisdiction of the team is based from. The GingerCane Contest has entered into formal agreements with the principle providers of children’s health services in Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg. For contributions made to entries from outside of these jurisdictions, to the extent allowable by any body of judicial or regulatory authority, we will endeavor to distribute a pro rata share of net proceeds of the campaign to hospital charities in reasonable proximity to the physical location of those entries.
