Project 2016: Sleeping Children Around the WorldAmount raised: $35,000
We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday October 5th, 2016 for our third annual gala. This year, our recipient charity is Sleeping Children Around The World. (SCAW). Sleeping Children Around the World distributes bedkits to children in a ratio of 50% girls and 50% boys, aged 6-12, from any culture or religion. The core philosophy of this unique charity is that every child should be able to get a good night's sleep.
The contents of a bedkit vary from country to country, but always contain bedding and a mosquito net, clothing and school supplies. SCAW was founded by Murray and Margaret Dryden in 1970. Since then, the organization has raised over $40 million to provide bedkits for over 1.4 million children in 34 countries.
This year, we are honoured to have NHL hockey legend Dave Dryden, the current chairman of SCAW, to be speaking at Emajjin's gala. Live entertainment will be provided by the very talented vocalist/pianist, Eliza Pope.
As always, our silent auction will offer unique items for everyone: tickets to local shows, weekend getaways, sports events such as Raptors games, wine packages and items for the whole family. Our live auction will feature a family holiday, golf packages and other goodies.
Join the fun by bidding on these great items and raising money for SCAW!
