Chelsea Hotel recently presented a cheque for $100,000 as part of SickKids Foundation’s Donor of the Week celebration.
“The ability to ‘give back’ to the community is not only an important philosophy of the Chelsea Hotel, Toronto but it is something the hotel practices every day. We are not only willing to go above and beyond to bring comfort to our guests, but also to bring comfort to families in need in the local community in which we operate. It is our hope to not only increase awareness for SickKids, but to continue to raise much needed funds to help those children in their care,” said Josef Ebner, regional vice-president – Canada & managing director, Chelsea Hotel, Toronto.
The Chelsea Hotel, Toronto is a generous and long-time partner of The Hospital for Sick Children. Since 2013, Chelsea Hotel has donated over $1 million in support of AboutKidsHealth, a health education resource for children, youth and caregivers.
For the past 19 years, the annual Chelsea Charity Golf Classic has raised funds and awareness for charity and this year’s event will once again, support AboutKidsHealth and building the new hospital.
Chelsea Hotel’s commitment helps ensure that SickKids can continue to offer the knowledge that can save a child’s life and help improve the overall wellbeing of Canadian families.
“We cannot thank the Chelsea Hotel, Toronto enough for steadfastly believing in our vision for the future of SickKids,” said Adam Starkman, Vice President, Corporate Partnerships, SickKids Foundation. “Our vision for better children’s health is generously supported through their continued investment in educational resources like AboutKidsHealth. It is also because of partners like Chelsea Hotel, Toronto that a new SickKids is rising. Thank you Chelsea Hotel, Toronto for sharing our enthusiasm of what SickKids can accomplish with infrastructure that lifts, not limits our ability to care for patients.”
