MAW_Logo_CanadaTFcon Toronto 2014 is pleased to announce that we will once again be hosting a charity auction for Make-A-Wish Canada, this time on Friday, July 11th, 2014. Admission to this event will be free for anyone that would like to attend.

The charity auction will feature many great unique donations and we hope our community will help us raise as much as possible for the Make-A-Wish foundation. If you wish to donate an item for the auction please email us.

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.

Make-A-Wish impacts the lives of families when they need to know that their community cares about what they are going through, as their child battles for his or her life.

Make-A-Wish exists for one reason only – to grant wishes to children living with life-threatening medical conditions. Thanks for helping to share the power of a wish®!
