Chelsea raises $100,000 for SickKids

Chelsea Hotel, Toronto, is a generous and long-time partner of The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids). Since 2013, the Chelsea has donated $500,000 in support of AboutKidsHealth, a health education resource for children, youth and caregivers. As part of SickKids Foundation’s Donor of the Week celebration, the Chelsea Hotel presented a cheque for $100,000 today (Sept. 25).

“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.
