Home Pix of the Trade Chelsea Hotel, Toronto Gives Back

daily-chelsea-sept20 As a supporter of SickKids Foundation, Chelsea Hotel, Toronto recently presented the Foundation with a cheque for $100,000 as part of the “Donor of the Week” celebration. The donation is part of a five-year fund-raising plan implemented in 2014 with a goal of $500,000. “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 & managing director, Chelsea Hotel, Toronto. For the past 15 years, the annual Chelsea Charity Golf Classic has raised funds and awareness for charity and this year’s event will support AboutKidsHealth.ca.
