This year the Gala took place at Arcadian Court on Friday, June 16 and again brought together an assortment of personalities from hockey and other sports. All net proceeds go to the Hospital for Sick Children and the event was one of the most high profile Toronto galas of 2017.
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.
