Event History

In 1994, the Toronto Society of Fellows had a vision — to unite the insurance community with compassion and commitment to fulfill the dreams and wishes of seriously ill and hospitalized children.

 

We should be proud to work in an industry that puts aside our day-to-day competitiveness and comes together once a year to show how much we care.

 

In our first 27 years, we have:

 

  • Donated more than $4.9 million to Starlight Children's Foundation Canada
  • Fulfilled almost 1,350 wishes
  • Placed 124 Fun Centers in pediatric wards across Ontario

And most importantly... brought thousands of smiles to the faces of seriously ill and hospitalized children!

 

Last year, for the first time since 1994, the Starlight Insurance Committee launched a first-ever year-long campaign in support of Starlight Canada. 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.
