TORONTO—Eaton Chelsea, Toronto presented, on Oct. 29, a $90,000 cheque to SickKids Foundation, a funder of child health research, learning and care in Canada providing critical support for patients at The Hospital for Sick Children, in Toronto. 

The presentation took place in the hospital’s atrium.

“The ability to give back to the community is not only an important philosophy of the Eaton Chelsea, Toronto, but it is something the hotel practices every day,” said Josef Ebner, regional vice-president, Canada and managing director, Eaton Chelsea, Toronto, in a release. “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.”

For the past thirteen years, the annual Eaton Chelsea Charity Golf Classic has raised funds and awareness for charity and this year’s event will support AboutKidsHealth.ca, providing child health resources enabling all families to have access to the child health information they need

Earlier this year, the Eaton Chelsea announced a new partnership with SickKids Foundation as part of their corporate social responsibility efforts for 2014. The hotel has committed to a five-year fundraising plan with a goal of $500,000 over five years to support Ages and Stages, an online information portal on the AboutKidsHealth website offering resources for parents about child development and common health issues.
