As part of SickKids Foundation’s Donor of the Week celebration on Sept. 25, Chelsea Hotel, Toronto presented a cheque for $100,000 to SickKids.
Since 2013, Chelsea Hotel has donated $700,000 in support of AboutKidsHealth, a health education resource for children, youth and caregivers that empowers families to become a partner in their own health care by equipping them with reliable, evidence-based health information that is easy to understand and immediately available, regardless of where they are in Canada or the world.
“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. 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,” said Josef Ebner, regional vice-president – Canada and managing director, Chelsea Hotel, Toronto.
For the past 18 years, the annual Chelsea Charity Golf Classic has raised funds and awareness for charity and this year’s event will once again support AboutKidsHealth.
