Gala 2023 Header (2)

Event Summary

On Saturday, October 14th, 2023, the Children's Foundation of Guelph and Wellington hosted our annual fundraising Gala, themed as Once Upon a Time. This magical event was presented by Elinesky Schuett Private Wealth of RBC Dominion Securities and brought together over 225 guests at the Delta Hotels by Marriott Guelph Conference Centre.

With the support of our guests, sponsors, event partners, and donations from the community, we're filled with gratitude to announce that together we raised over $132,000 to support local children and youth. These funds will help support the well-being of children and youth by connecting them to experiences and supports that contribute to their sense of belonging and help them to reach their full potential.

We would like to thank all our sponsors, partners, guests, prize donors, volunteers, and the community at large for your support. With the need in our community continuing to grow, events like our annual Gala help us continue to meet that need every day. Thank you.

Our heartfelt gratitude to our valued partner, Immigrant Services of Guelph-Wellington for their support in creating this impact video with us.
