metric chf garth brooks Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan, and Teammates for Kids “Forever for the kids”. We were incredibly honoured to take on the decorating and planning details for the Saskatoon leg of the “Forever for the kids” event put on by the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan, and Garth Brooks’ Teammates for kids foundation. This incredible event in August was part of a double fundraiser, back to back events hosted in Saskatoon and Regina. 100% of the money raised from the events will be used to create a “state of the art therapeutic play area” called a Child Life Zone in the new Children’s Hospital, right here in Saskatoon!

The Metric team was honoured to decorate the entire event and work with the Wiegers team, and other local sponsors.

metric-bes-2015 The Metric Garden Lounge opens at the Bess! “What happens when you take an award winning designer, an award winning outdoor venue, and an awarding winning Chef and stir? You get the new Metric Garden Lounge @ The Bess. The Delta Bessborough Gardens has long been thought of as the finest outdoor space in Saskatoon. Virtually no other city can celebrate such a venue in the heart of their downtown. Home to such events as the SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival, the Cameco Cares Concert Series and Rock the River, not to mention numerous wedding and events, the Bessborough Gardens patio has now been transformed into the ultimate Saskatoon al fresco dining experience. A creative collaboration between the storied “Castle on the River” and the Metric Design Centre will bring together the traditional and the contemporary in manner that is sure to delight Saskatonians and visitors alike.”
