The Ball for the Children's: $1,244,000 to help the Children’s find Unexpected Ways to Heal!
The winds of generosity were blowing at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth on Friday, October 4. Hundreds of business people, major philanthropists, government ministers and artists came together at the 20th edition of the Ball for the Children’s to support the well-being of our children and their families.
Congratulations to the Recipients of the 2019 Awards of Excellence!
This wonderful peer recognition event allows us to highlight the work of the staff who help improve the lives of our young patients thanks to their team spirit, talent and commitment to the Children’s.
Finding unexpected ways to heal also means helping children like Matis overcome their fears. Terrified of injections, Matis, 8, was overwhelmed with anxiety every time he was about to go through surgery. Thankfully, the Children’s Parental Presence at Induction (PPI) program was there for him.
