On Saturday, April 21st, 2018 we will welcome supporters, sponsors and friends to our incredible 23rd Annual Starlight Children’s Foundation Gala. This black-tie gala is the largest annual fundraiser that provides much-needed support for vital programming provided by Starlight Children’s Foundation. This event has risen over $6.5 million to date, in support of Starlight’s work, as a result of the tremendous philanthropic spirit and generosity of sponsorships, pledges and donations.

It is a celebration of spirit, courage and resilience of Starlight families and of Starlight’s support of those families. Starlight programs aim to replace for a moment, the aches and tears of treatment, with a renewed smile and sense of strength and hope.
We are excited to announce that this event will once again be hosted at the prestigious Fairmont Royal York in Toronto, where you will be greeted by Casanova and swept into a majestic and mysterious night with our “Venetian Masquerade Ball” theme.

There are numerous partnership and sponsorship opportunities available. We would ask that you select the best level of support for your corporate and personal philanthropy goals – and thank you for your incredible compassion to make a difference in the lives of others. Every sponsorship, donation, silent auction item and purchasing of tables and tickets, moves us closer to our goal this year of raising $800,000 for the incredible Starlight Children’s Foundation charity.

As Gala Chair for this wonderful event, I couldn’t be more proud to dedicate my time to such an important cause. I sincerely hope that we can count on you for your partnership as we all need to find it in our hearts to lift up others with our support, dedication and actions as we make this year’s Gala the most successful yet.

With sincere thanks,

Patrick Lefrancois
