Events | Why you won’t want to miss Toronto’s inaugural All-Star Gala in Support of SickKids

There are moments in my life where I stop for minute to think about how blessed I truly am. Along with Catherine & Amanda, we are able to live amazing experiences and work with so many amazing brands around the world. But without our health, where would we be? I personally believe that it is our responsibility as members of the media to give back where and when we can. So on Friday June 26th will be showing its support to the first ever All-Star Gala in Support of SickKids presented by West of Contra. Come & see why you won’t want to miss this event in support of an amazing cause!

What is $125.00 worth to you? Many of us would come up with so pretty unique answers. But what if I told you that $125.00 as the cost of a ticket to attend this year’s All Star-Gala could help to save the life of a child or go towards long term care for them?

“Presented by West of Contra, hosted by TSN’s Cabral Richards and with performances by Canadian artists including Juno Award Nominee Glenn Morrison, the first annual All-Star Gala in Support of SickKids will see 1200 young professionals, pro athletes and celebrities unite to raise $150,000 for SickKids Foundation in one night.”

This isn’t just another event in the city. It’s a chance for you to not only enjoy yourself but also make a significant impact in the lives of children in desperate need of your help.


Why give to SickKids?  The need is enormous. Every year, more than 100,000 children come to SickKids for life-saving care and the number continues to grow. Thanks in large part to donations SickKids is already one of the world’s leading health-care institutions. With continued support, we can continue to push the frontiers of what is possible in care, research and learning. Every dollar counts. Every supporter makes a difference for kids.”

For $125.00 you gain access to one of the year’s best events including (but not limited to):

· Mingling with past and present pro athletes from the NHL, NBA, CFL, MLS and MLB

· Open bar all night with create-your-own cocktail stations and a caesar bar by Tito’s vodka.

· Live performances by Juno Award Nominee Glenn Morrison, and Rihanna and Drake songwriter and R&B artist Aion Clarke

· Luxury silent auction and raffles 

Together, we can make a difference.
