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.
Now in our 28th year, our goal is to raise $280,000 and break $5 million total donated to Starlight Canada since 1994! Together with your help, the insurance industry can make this our biggest and brightest year yet.
1. Insurance Gala – On Saturday, May 7th, 2022, our "Resilience" themed in-person Gala made its return to The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto after two years apart! Thanks to the incredible support of the insurance industry, the evening broke records as 63 total Wishes were donated, and our highest total revenue in our history was raised of an astounding $352,750!
2. Golf Tournament – Thank you to our wonderful sponsors & foursomes for making the 2nd Annual Starlight Insurance Golf Day on August 11th, 2022, a success! We hope everyone enjoyed the great weather and the beautiful Lebovic Golf Club while supporting Starlight Canada and helping us raise almost $40,000!
