|One of the remarkable images from the photographers who took part in Images of Hope last year, a fundraiser for Generations of Hope Fertility Assistance Fund, held every March.
There are few things in life so hopeful as the faces of children, or images of babies. But for many people struggling with infertility due to various medical reasons, building a family is a complicated reality involving in vitro fertilization and costly medical bills that can be as high as $13,000 per round. So how then, are people, able to create a family when faced with such a huge financial cost?
Images of Hope takes place at Heritage Park, in Calgary and is a catered dinner and silent auction open to anyone who wishes to attend. Tickets are $100 each or $700 for a table of eight and must be purchased in advance. Available on line at:
The families donate their time and story, as do the photographers.
There is also a silent auction. Some of the amazing donated prizes there are stunning!

The fundraiser brought in $75,000 last year and it is the primary fundraiser for Generations of Hope. Images of Hope has no administrative costs so every dollar raised at the event goes to Generations of Hope and helps create healthy families in Alberta. The event is hosted by Eric Francis and Kelly Abbott of Jack FM.
What is more hopeful than a picture like this?
