TORONTO — As part of SickKids Foundation’s Donor of the Week celebration, the Chelsea Hotel, Toronto has presented a cheque for $100,000 to the Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning.
Since 2013, the Chelsea Hotel, Toronto has donated more than $1 million in support of AboutKidsHealth, a health-education resource for children, youth and caregivers that empowers families to become a partner in their own healthcare by equipping them with reliable, evidence-based health information regardless of where they are in the world. The Chelsea Hotel, Toronto’s commitment ensures that SickKids can continue to offer this knowledge to improve the overall wellbeing of Canadian families.
Additionally, the annual Chelsea Charity Golf Classic has raised funds and awareness for charity. This year’s event will once again support AboutKidsHealth and building a new hospital. The campus re-development project, also known as Project Horizon, will result in the renovation of virtually all clinical care and support areas of the hospital and is slated to be completed by the year 2035.
“The ability to give back to the community is not only an important philosophy of the Chelsea Hotel, Toronto but it is something the hotel practices every day. We are not only willing to go above and beyond to bring comfort to our guests, but also to bring comfort to families in need in the local community in which we operate,” says Josef Ebner, regional VP – Canada and managing director, Chelsea Hotel, Toronto. “It is our hope to not only increase awareness for SickKids, but to continue to raise much needed funds to help those children in their care.”
“We cannot thank the Chelsea Hotel, Toronto enough for steadfastly believing in our vision for the future of SickKids,” says Adam Starkman, VP, Corporate Partnerships, SickKids Foundation. “Our vision for better children’s health is generously supported through their continued investment in educational resources like AboutKidsHealth. It is also because of partners like Chelsea Hotel, Toronto that a new SickKids is rising. Thank you Chelsea Hotel, Toronto for sharing our enthusiasm of what SickKids can accomplish with infrastructure that lifts, not limits our ability to care for patients.”
