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.

TFcon Toronto 2015 Charity Auction raises $10417.40 for Make-A-Wish Canada

tfcon-buttonTFcon 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!
