This year the Gala took place again at the Toronto Event Centre on Friday, June 10th, 2022. The theme of this year’s Gala was the Olympic Games. The event was attended by numerous sports stars past and present as well as prominent sports media personalities and other celebs. This year a celebres fashion show was held. With the Olympic theme there was several past Olympic medalists in attendance as well as Olympic-themed décor and activations. All net proceeds go towards infant congenital heart disease research and care at the Hospital for Sick Children. The event was one of the most high profile Toronto galas of 2022.
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.
