2nd Annual Gala Del Sol 'Igniting Our Hearts'
Come and enjoy an evening of great food, awesome entertainment, and
even better company!!! All for a great cause!!! Whether this is your
first time attending a Young Nurses Take Action Foundation fundraiser or
if you've been to hundreds...this won't disappoint. You will enjoy a 3

As the Gala Del Sol is in February and so close to Valentine's Day,
we thought the theme 'Igniting Our Hearts' was quite fitting.
IGNITE ~ 1. to arouse the passions of; excite 2. to stimulate or provoke
We want to stimulate, we want to
provoke, we want to excite, and we want that to awaken a passion in you,
and your heart, that each and every YNTA member has...the passion and
dedication to make a difference!!! Thanks to our wonderful Presenting Sponsor, Johnsons Insurance Inc, 100% of ticket sales will go to
supporting leadership, mentorship, and global citizenship in young
Registered Nurses and Registered Psychiatric Nurses in Alberta. Not only
that but you will also be hugely supporting YNTA’s 2017 medical trip to
Nicaragua in April/May.
As the second poorest country in Western Hemisphere, Nicaragua suffers immensely from a deficiency of available medical care and resources. Many rural communities do not have local health care facilities and they cannot afford treatment that is offered in the cities. YNTA members are striving to create positive change in rural communities in the Tola region of Nicaragua. We will work alongside the Roberto Clemente Health Clinic to provide primary health care, education, and sustainable support, that would otherwise not be available. YNTA’s medical trip 2017, is currently comprised of 16 volunteer Registered Nurses/Registered Psychiatric Nurses from Edmonton and area. Members will be travelling in April/May 2016 for 4 weeks. The team of Registered/Registered Psychiatric Nurses are volunteering their time and are paying for their own flight in order to ensure the communities in Nicaragua receive the maximum value for the donations received.
As you can see your donation will go a long way. Please help make our passion (and hopefully yours) become a reality!!
