Presenting Sponsor

Winnipeg, MB July 8, 2024 — Sam’s Foundation is thrilled to announce WFS Wealth & Financial Strategies (WFS) as the new Butterfly Ball Presenting Sponsor. As part of this four-year partnership, WFS is generously donating $100,000 to the foundation over the four-year period.

We are incredibly grateful for the support from WFS,” said Brad Mason, Executive Director of Sam’s Foundation. “Their commitment ensures that we can sustain and expand our efforts to make a positive impact on the lives of young people in our country.” WFS, a Canadian business specializing in estate planning, investment planning, financial planning for business owners and medical professionals, and succession planning for the agri-business sector, has shown an unwavering dedication to community support.

WFS are firm believers in giving back to local charities and pouring back into our community,” said Dave Watson, WFS President. “After attending the first two galas (Butterfly Ball), we decided this was a cause we wanted to be a bigger part of.” The Butterfly Ball is the cornerstone event for Sam’s Foundation. Through fundraising events and donations, Sam’s Foundation collaborates with various youth organizations across Canada to help identify youth in crisis, advocate on their behalf, and provide the support they desperately need.

Sam’s Foundation expresses heartfelt gratitude to WFS for their commitment and generosity that will help make an impact towards a brighter future for children and youth across Canada.

About the Butterfly Ball

Sam’s Foundation hosts an annual gala event, the Butterfly Ball, to help educate Manitobans on the struggles and triumphs that our Canadian youth face, and the impact the foundation can make by supporting programs through partner charity organizations; LiveDifferent and Toba Centre for Youth & Children.

The event has grown each year, with over 1,200 people in attendance in 2024. Hosted by Winnipeg’s favorite radio personality, Ace Burpee, the Butterfly Ball is a night filled with compassion, connectivity, and most importantly, change.
