About A Night Under the Stars
All funds raised by this event will be donated to Make-a-Wish Canada to help grant wishes for children living with critical illnesses in the Toronto and central Ontario area. When children are battling a critical illness, so much of normal childhood is taken away from them – it is exhausting, both emotionally and physically. A wish is something that gives kids the opportunity to look outside their illness – it restores a sense of childhood back to the child and normalcy back to the family and is an integral part of a child’s treatment journey. Research shows that children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength needed to fight their illnesses.
