The Children’s Foundations Annual Gala Raises Record Amount!!

After two years in the making, The Guardians Angel Gala is a huge success, raising a record-breaking $232,562!

Bernie Ouellet joined The Children’s Foundation guardian angel family as he was honoured in front of 200+ guests this past Saturday.

“Once again our community demonstrated how generous it is in supporting young people that need help.  Celebrating Bernie Ouellet and all that he has done for our community, inspired everyone to reach deep and help children and youth at risk of abuse or neglect. There are so many people and businesses in the Hastings, Northumberland, and Prince Edward Counties who supported this event, and we are grateful to every single one who donated, sponsored, volunteered their time and resources, and came out to enjoy an amazing in person event that was long overdue. Thank you to everyone and especially to our Angel Bernie Ouellet for allowing us to celebrate his amazing contributions to our community while raising money for children and youth.” Says Gala chair, Liz Lehtinen.

All donations will go towards our Reach for Success Bursary and Scholarship program, Camps of Hope program, and Playing for Keeps program.

The Children’s Foundation is beyond thankful and appreciates all the generosity from our community. It is truly inspiring to see our community come together to help at-risk children and youth in need.

Rat Pack Gala is HERE!

It is finally here!! The Children’s Foundation is excited to present the Rat Pack Gala in honor of Bernie Ouellet this Saturday.

The Guardian Angel Gala is our annual fundraiser for The Children’s Foundation. Unfortunately, due to COVID, this is the first time the Guardian Angel Gala will be held since 2020. Which is why it is most important now more than ever to raise money for at-risk children and youth within the community.

“Our team at The Children’s Foundation is so excited to be celebrating our Guardian Angel Bernie Ouellet at our in-person gala. We will enjoy a night of great food, drinks, dancing to The Swing Masters, and what will be an entertaining live auction with Boyd Sullivan. All proceeds help children and youth play, learn, and grow! We hope to see you there.” Liz Lehtinen, Gala Chair

You can still support at-risk children and youth by participating in The Children’s Foundations silent auction that will close this Monday at 9 pm. Head to www.thechildrensfoundation.ca under events to start bidding!
