Announcing Starlight’s First-Ever Virtual Gala!


Did you know that Starlight Canada’s biggest fundraising event of the year was set to happen the same month COVID-19 shut down the country?

Our 25th Annual Starlight Children’s Foundation Gala set to originally take place on March 28, 2020 – with the goal to raise $1,000,000 to brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families – was unfortunately cancelled.

Until now! While it may not be the traditional in-person gala we are all used to and hoping for, thanks to our sponsors and supporters, Starlight Canada is thrilled to announce history in the making with the first-ever Virtual Starlight Gala!

On Thursday, September 10th, 2020, presented by Toys“R”Us Canada, this virtual event will be hosted by Canadian television personality, Rick Campanelli. From the safety of home, guests will enjoy virtual entertainment, heartwarming family speeches, a silent auction, and so much more!

What would have taken place originally at the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto, now can be brought to computer screens across the country! Which means that no matter the city or province you live in, YOU can get involved! How?

A special thank you to Presenting Sponsor, Toys“R”Us Canada, and all of our other incredible sponsors and donors, for helping seriously ill children and their families under these unprecedented circumstances. Together, we can do anything! We can’t wait to show that on Thursday, September 10th.
