Since it began in 1994, the Starlight Insurance Gala has raised over $4.9 million in support of Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada on their mission to brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families – from hospital to home.
Last year, instead of our usual in-person Gala, the Starlight Insurance Committee launched the first-ever year-long campaign to continue our commitment through the pandemic and through the difficulties it brought to immunocompromised children. Through quarterly COVID-19 safe initiatives in 2021 – including a Calendar Raffle, Golf Tournament, Silent and Wish Auctions, and more – an incredible $274,559 was raised among the insurance industry to help spread joy to sick kids across Canada.
In our 28th year, we broke records as we raised over $425,000 in 2022, surpassing $5 million total donated to Starlight Canada since 1994! We hope you had fun joining the insurance community this year through our Gala, Golf Tournament, and Calendar Raffle. We can't wait to see what next year brings. Thank you so much for your generosity and stay tuned!
