GO CHICJOIN EXISTING EVENT
WAYS TO GET FANCY
From ballroom dances to black-tie bashes, there’s no one way to go chic for SickKids.
A Night for SickKids Gala
A Night for SickKids Gala hosted by On The Floor brings the best of dance in support of SickKids. Although they were unable to run a live event in 2020, they continued their support by going virtual. For two virtual shows, the On The Floor team used Instagram & streaming platforms to look back on some of their most memorable ultimate dance performances with Gala choreographers and professional dancers.
Need some inspiration? Here’s how some of our fundraisers are supporting SickKids.
No, and we are grateful for all funds raised by the community!
Funds raised go towards the areas of greatest need—and greatest promise—at the hospital. That includes building a new, state-of-the-art SickKids, supporting groundbreaking research, and forging partnerships to improve care for more children—here and around the world.
As much as we’d love to come to every event, we can’t guarantee a SickKids representative will always be there. But even when we can’t make it, we will still provide tools and supportive materials to help you deliver impact to your participants.
While we can’t provide funding to run the event, we can help you find ways to offset event expenses and fundraise.
Once you have registered your fundraiser, you may access our In Support of SickKids logo & brand guidelines in your Fundraising Hub. The In Support of SickKids logo may be used on promotional materials for your event, but before printing or distributing, please send to your SickKids representative for a quick review. If you’re hosting a corporate event, your SickKids representative will share logo usage options with you.
While we can’t approach corporations or people on your behalf, we can give you tools and resources—including sample sponsorship packages—to make the ask yourself. This can be found in your Fundraising Hub once you’ve registered your fundraiser.
Gaming and lotteries—including bingo, 50/50 draws, gambling, raffles and games of chance—often require licenses. (For more information, visit www.agco.on.ca.) We recommend you hold a promotional draw instead. You can run do so without a license, but you must offer the tickets for a suggested minimum donation instead of a fixed amount. Please note that SickKids Foundation will not obtain licenses on your behalf.
Please mail to the following address, and accompany funds with Your Name, Fundraiser/Event Name, Donor First Name & Last Name or Company Name, Donor E-mail & Address, & Donation Amount.
