Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada Gala – Teddy Bear Affair 2024

Welcome to the magical world of the Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada Gala – Teddy Bear Affair, where elegance meets inspiration, and hope takes centre stage as we make a positive impact on the lives of families, children, and youth touched by the child welfare system. It is an evening of sophistication, compassion and generosity that unites philanthropists, business executives, and community leaders who share our conviction that every child deserves a chance to dream, heal, hope, and thrive. It's not just an event; it's a celebration of resilience and the power of philanthropy.

Since 1986, the Foundation Gala has raised nearly $40 million, allowing us to champion vital initiatives that keep families together, enrich the lives of children and youth, and assist those transitioning from the child welfare system to live lives of stability and independence. We invite you to be a part of something truly extraordinary. Let’s create magic together and make the 2024 Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada Gala – Teddy Bear Affair an affair to remember!
