Hollywood A-listers, socialites, and high-profile athletes will join Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and his family January 12 to 15, 2006 at The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise Celebrity Sports Invitational, to raise money for the environmental protection group The Waterkeeper Alliance. The resort is in Canada's Banff National Park, 183 kilometres west of Calgary, Alberta.

Events include the snowshoe obstacle course, laps on cross-country ski tracks, snow basketball, toboggan competitions and dual slalom ski races. Public events take place at The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and 10 minutes away at the ski area, where 4,000 acres of slopes spread over three mountain faces.

For several years, the fundraiser was held at the Chateau's sister property, The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, attracting high-profile actors such as Catharine Zeta-Jones, Michael Douglas, Meg Ryan and Alec Baldwin. Names are usually not confirmed until several weeks before the dates, with last-minute participants announced up to the last few hours.

Comedian Robin Williams has staged an unannounced stand-up routine on Saturday's black-tie gala evening, where each year more than $500,000 (U.S.) dollars is raised in silent and live auctions for the Waterkeeper Alliance.

Founded in 1999, by Robert F Kennedy Jr., the alliance is the world's fastest growing environmental movement, with member organizations throughout North and South America, Europe and Australia, dedicated to clean water.

Very limited tickets to the Saturday night gala may be sold closer to the event dates.
