It’s just over two weeks until the 30th annual CAF Gala – Teddy Bear Affair, an evening that’s bound to be filled with glamour, excitement, and BIG impact for our community’s most at-risk kids. Last year alone, an incredible $1.4M was raised!

Thanks to patron sponsors, CIBC and CGI, who have been supporting the Gala respectively for 20 and 21 years, the Children’s Aid Foundation will once again host its #CAFGala, and offer a variety of exclusive opportunities — from an incredible Silent Auction and Almost Live Auction (now open for bidding!), to a custom-designed dinner, and incredible array of musical entertainment.

Check out our incredible array of auction items, including:
