Joy is a wonder drug
The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada works with communities across the country to provide children with life threatening illnesses the opportunity to realize their most heartfelt wish. By creating unique, meaningful experiences, Children’s Wish enhances quality of life for these courageous children and their families.
THE CHILDREN’S WISH GALA
This year we will be welcoming back Mr. Dave Kelly as our master of ceremonies as we celebrate 30 years of Wishes. You will meet incredible Wish families and hear why Wishes are so important! What happens when a child’s Wish comes to life? This year you will see first-hand what granting a Wish means, providing an unforgettable experience for everyone in attendance!
We recognize that many people and business are facing challenging times given the current economic climate. For this reason, we will be focusing on supporting local business as well as collaborating with other charities to help spread the support and generosity. In addition to the challenging landscape, Children’s Wish is experiencing an unprecedented increase in referrals for children who are eligible for Wishes. This increase in referrals, compounded by the rising cost of Wishes largely due to the lower Canadian dollar, means we need your help more than ever to help us grant the next heart felt Wish!
