Holiday Season Celebration

Become involved in this exclusive event for kids and families involved with the child welfare system, its the only holiday celebration they may experience.

For most children the holidays are time of joy, celebration and being together with the ones they love. Unfortunately, for many children living in care and accessing child welfare services, the holidays are a difficult time full of disappointment, confusion and frustration. The Holiday Season Celebration is the Children’s Aid Foundation’s longest standing enrichment initiative which has provided hope to tens of thousands of Toronto’s most vulnerable children and youth for over 30 years. For many of these children it is the only holiday celebration they will have.

Sunday, December 17, 2017
The Fairmont Royal York.

This is a private invitation only event.
