The annual All-Star Gala in support of SickKids is a semi-formal event that brings together an assortment of past and present athletes and personalities from hockey and other sports. Many of Toronto’s professionals and social crowd came out to support a very worthwhile cause!
The evening featured live performances by well-known musicians and DJs. Toronto Maple Leafs centreman Peter Holland and Montreal Canadiens defenceman, PK Subban attended as athlete ambassadors and special guests of the Gala. All net proceeds of this event went to support the highest priority needs of the Hospital for Sick Children as well as the Montreal Children’s Hospital!
Established in 1972, SickKids Foundation raises funds on behalf of The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) and is the largest charitable funder of child health research, learning and care in Canada. Philanthropy is a critical source of funding for SickKids – one of the world’s foremost paediatric health-care institutions.
As a national charity, SickKids Foundation not only invests in the important work taking place at SickKids, it also invests in national and international initiatives to benefit children in Canada and around the world. This commitment is true to the spirit of the Foundation’s founders, who articulated a vision for the Foundation that went well beyond the hospital walls 40 years ago.
