The event of the year is back! With a new location, Swinging with the Stars is opening the doors to more attendees than ever before. We can’t wait to welcome you to a bigger stage, bigger venue and an even bigger show at the Conexus Arts Centre!

⭐Swinging with the Stars is similar to the popular reality TV show Dancing with the Stars. We take eight of the city’s most influential people and pair them each with a professional dancer. The pairs then compete in front of a high energy crowd to win bragging rights for the “Crowd Favourite” and “Judge’s Favourite” awards.
The heartfelt evening is dedicated to raising funds for Hope’s Home; the first medically integrated daycare in Canada. Hope’s Home provides children with complex medical needs, their siblings and typically developing children in the community with a place to learn, grow and be kids.

You can stay up to date on all the event details, including who will be taking the stage this year, on our Facebook Event Page.

We wrapped on Swinging with the Stars Prince Albert last weekend and the magic we felt in that room is still carrying us through this week! The energy was magnetic, and the performances, WOW.

Not only that, the community came out in droves and we raised over $200,000 for services and much needed equipment at many of our facilities.

Thank you to every single person who assisted in putting this event together. We really could not have done it without you.

To a night we won’t soon forget!

With extremely sad hearts, we are officially announcing that Swinging With the Stars Regina is cancelled as an in-person event.

Last week we were informed by our venue that the Saskatchewan Health Authority would not be moving out of the International Trade Centre anymore, which forced us into choosing a new, and less than ideal, location. The plan was to make do with what we had, and still do our best to put on a production that the crowd would love. We then listened to our Premier implement necessary regulations for the safety of our province. As a healthcare organization, we have been diligent on following SHA protocols to protect our families and children, as safety will always be a top priority. So, after much deliberation, considering the new venue, the recent restrictions, rising COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and the magnitude of our event, we felt that it was the ethical decision to call it off.
However, as promised we are still committing to a free virtual event so that we can recognize all the hard work and months of practice our dancers have put into making their routines some of the best we have ever seen! More information will be coming in the next couple of days – but for now, know that you’ll be able to round up a group of friends, plan a viewing party, and cheer on your favourite dancers from the comfort of your own home! Voting will remain open, and the “Crowd Favourite” and “Judges Choice” will still be crowned for our 2021 event.

fundraiser event ideas - swinging with the stars regina

Mark your calendars for October 2nd, 2021 because Regina’s best night out on the town is BACK!

Are you as excited as we are?! We hope so because we cannot wait to get back to in-person fundraising events. We have missed connecting with all of our wonderful Hope’s Home supporters.

If you’re new here –  Swinging With the Stars is our biggest fundraising event of the year. It is based off the popular TV show, Dancing With the Stars. We pair 8 of Regina’s most influential celebrities with a professional dancer where they compete for Judges Choice, while also raising money in their name to win “Crowd Favourite” as well. It’s a FUN, entertainment filled night – and one that’s a “can’t miss” in the city.

We can’t tell you too much just yet. But make sure you keep an eye out on our socials for all the announcements. Like revealing the dancers, early bird ticket opportunities, teaser videos and more. You can find us on Instagram and Facebook.

But wait – there is one thing we can tell you.
This year we are shaking things up and we are giving the public an opportunity to nominate people to dance this year! If you want to learn more about this and how to apply click here!

We can’t wait to see you there on October 2nd!

Coffee fundraiser idea for nonprofits

Coffee for a Cause

Who doesn’t love coffee? Whether you take it iced, hot, sweet, or black – it’s a pretty universally loved beverage. Which makes it perfect for a fundraiser.

Hope’s Home has teamed up with a local cafe, Dr. Java’s in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan for the ultimate coffee fundraiser. Dr. Java’s roasts their own coffee beans and supports different local non-profits throughout the year. And of course the month of May is for us!! Hope’s Home!! Their coffee is hands down the best in the city so we know that everyone needs a bag.

There are two different bags, a medium roast, “Beautiful Day to Stay Home,” and a dark roast, “Fueling Hope.” They are $20.00/bag a portion of the proceeds goes to us.

How to purchase a bag?

If you’re from Prince Albert, you can simply head down to Dr. Java’s located at 425 15th St East to purchase a bag (or 4!). There are also bags available for purchase at our Early Learning & Childcare centre in Prince Albert. We take credit, cash, debit, or cheque at the centre!

Covid 19 vaccine

Covid-19 has not been a good time.

I’m sure everyone is exhausted, bored, stressed, and mad over yet another lockdown. This year has been tough on everyone, and for our staff it has meant isolated days spent in the house. Usually they are outside, spending time in the community, or attending events and activities. But since many of the kiddos are at a higher risk, they’ve had to be extra cautious with where they can go. So our staff had to get creative over the past year to try and find ways to still make the days fun and exciting. At times this has meant camping out in the backyard, taking up gardening, and scrolling through Pinterest for new craft ideas.

So it was a very exciting day that the mobile vaccine doc came to our Saskatoon home last week to vaccinate 28 of our staff!!

Covid Vaccine - health care workers

Vaccinated = Happier Days Ahead

Covid Vaccine - SaskatchewanThere was a very happy buzz at the house while everyone was getting vaccinated. We also had one of our kids get vaccinated as well!

Staff gathered on the front lawn in the sunshine and visited while distanced. Some had to bring their little ones and they took turns keeping an eye on them in their parents’ car when they went in for their shot. It was the first time the whole team had been together since last spring when we held an outdoor staff meeting 🙂🌞❤️

We know that there are brighter days ahead and we can’t wait for time when its finally safe to start enjoying our community again!!
