TFcon is very proud to announce that our 2015 charity auction was able to raise $10417.40 for Make-A-Wish® Canada. We are very proud of everyone in our community that contributed to make this amazing feat happen.
Make-A-Wish® Canada creates magical moments for children between the ages of 3 and 17, living with life threatening medical conditions, through granting a child’s one true wish. Make-A-Wish® strives to create hope, strength and joy by giving a child a much needed respite from being sick, allowing them to experience the wholesome enjoyment of just being a “kid” again.
Because the entire family experiences the diagnoses, treatment and day-to-day challenges of caring for a child with an illness, the entire family is included in the wish experience. Make-A-Wish® likes to make sure their families do not have to lift a finger or spend a dime. So if you think of the cost of sending a family of 4 to Disney for a week from the car that picks them up to park activities, souvenirs as well as food and medical insurance the average cost of a wish is $10,000. So that means, because of the TFcon Toronto 2015 charity auction a child will have their wish come true!
