Starlight Children’s Foundation is an organization I love to support. They do such amazing work for seriously ill children both in and out of hospital, and I’m very excited to be attending the Starlight Gala this year. The Gala raises funds in support of all the incredible work Starlight does.
This year, the Fairmont Royal York will be transformed into a beautiful Venetian Masquerade Ball, with amazing live performances, celebrity appearances, costumes, stories from real Starlight families, and silent and live auctions. It’s going to be amazing.
Toys“R”Us and Babies“R”Us Canada have been Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada sponsors for 19 years and to date have raised over $17 million through various charitable initiatives. This includes their Annual Star Campaign where customers of Toys“R”Us and Babies“R”Us can donate to Starlight at the cash register. Each holiday season Toys“R”Us sells the Starlight Bear, which will also be on sale at this year’s Gala, and for the third consecutive year, Toys“R”Us hosted the 3-minute Dash, which is a fun, timed shopping spree for families with seriously ill children in cities across Canada.
Since its inception in 1995, the Starlight gala has raised over $6,800,000 making it one of the largest sources for fundraising. You can see some video footage of last year’s event HERE.
Tickets are on sale now, but if you’re unable to make it, you can always sponsor a Starlight family to enjoy the evening affair and help them create life-long memories.
From donating to volunteering there are endless ways to support the Gala.
