Curry Awards to support Canadian children’s charity
The second charity chosen to be supported by the first Toronto Curry Awards has been named as the SickKids Foundation.
The charity, based on University Avenue, Toronto aims to make every child, a healthy child. Every year, nearly 7 million children around the world die from preventable diseases and SickKids is devoted to helping as many of them as possible at home and abroad.
Currently the foundation is working on a number of initiatives including developing a seamless system of children’s health care, spreading our knowledge through SickKids teaching and training programs, funding special experiences for kids and families and offering specialized research positions to attract the brightest minds from all over the world to join the fight and much, much more.
Kara Chatfield, Coordinator, Community Events at the charity said: “SickKids mission is to inspire our communities to invest in health and scientific advances to improve the lives of children and their families in Canada and around the world. The support received from community partners, including the Toronto Curry Awards, makes this mission possible.”
Proceeds raised from the inaugural awards will go towards the SickKids foundation who will receive 1.5% revenue from individual ticket sales along with additional funds raised through a charity auction on the night.
Romail Gulzar, Founder and President of the Toronto Curry Awards said: “It’s been a wonderful experience to see the good work this charity is doing. Working with children’s charities is something very close to my heart so I hope the event can support and help fund their projects further.”
The Toronto Curry Awards will take place next year in the city.
