Suite Ambassador Program
This amazing program was started with the endorsement of the Calgary Flames, Calgary Hitmen, Calgary Roughnecks and the Saddledome Executive Suites department. Kids Up Front Calgary launched the Suite Ambassador Program so kids could watch a hockey game, lacrosse game or concert AND do it from a luxury suite!
We know that suites are an exciting and memorable experience for the kids and families, and with the help of our volunteers, we can ensure donated suites are respected and that the kids and families in attendance have a great time! The Suite Ambassador meets the groups, brings them to the suite, hangs out with the kids and families in the suite and ensures the event is a success. These suite ambassadors are Kids Up Front's eyes and ears at all Saddledome events!

Since the program started in 2013, we have received hundreds of suite donations. Thank you donors!
With the endorsement of the Calgary Flames and the Saddledome Executive Suite department, the Kids Up Front Foundation has been able to continue our Suite Ambassador Program. Suite donations are the most exciting and memorable experiences for the kids and families, and with your help, we would love to be able to provide even more of these VIP experiences this season! We understand the apprehensions and concerns with donating your privately owned suite to group of deserving, yet unknown people.
Our Kids Up Front office has recognized and appreciates these hesitations, so we created the Suite Ambassador Program. This program ensures there will be Kids Up Front representatives in every suite that is donated. Our ambassador’s role is to ensure your suite is well respected and supervised as the event goes on. We understand that these suites are expensive investments and that they need to be well kept by our guests.
Kids Up Front Ambassadors have been trained on suite processes and expectations, and join the selected group at the event for the entire length of the event. Our Ambassadors will meet the selected group prior to the beginning of the event, and outline any special considerations for your suite that evening. Ambassadors will then usher the group to your suite, and stay with the group for the duration of the event and will be the last person to leave.
These suite donations are incredibly generous and Kids Up Front wants to uphold our end of the partnership by respecting the space, and provide our donors with a reassurance that their investments are well looked after. It is our hope that this program will entice first time suite donors to choose Kids Up Front Calgary to provide exceptional memories for some very deserving children and families.
Because of the time that goes into organizing groups and volunteers to attend games in these suites, we have a suite donation cut-off of noon the day before the event for Flames, Roughnecks and concerts. However, you can always contact us to check if we have a need for certain suites if you have missed the deadline. For Hitmen suites we have a donation cut-off of 48 hours before the game, or Wednesday afternoon for weekend games.
Tax receipts can be given for all suite donations if requested!
Kids Up Front appreciates your consideration surrounding your suite donation. If you have any questions regarding the details of this program please feel free to contact us at 403.444.4318 or email [email protected] to donate.
