Host a Fundraiser

Why Host a Fundraiser

Every year individuals and groups from all across Ontario host their own fundraisers in support of our Foundation. As a children’s charity that does not receive any government funding, we rely solely on the kindness and generosity of individuals, corporations, special events and Foundations to make tough days a little brighter for children receiving medical care in Canada. Whether it’s a birthday, bake sale or event, thank you for making a difference!

Success Stories of Smilezone Fundraising Events

Monster Mash
Frank Fortino turned his annual Halloween Party into a fundraising Monster Mash! Raising $2,300 for Smilezone, Frank and his attendees were able to celebrate this spooky holiday while spreading smiles instead of scares for children receiving medical care!
Rotherglen
After proposing Smilezone Foundation to his grade 8 classmates at Rotherglen, student Ryan Wood undertook a legacy project that would impact children of Oakville grieving the loss of a loved one. After his class banded together and presented on Smilezone in front of the REACH Foundation’s panel of judges, Smilezone Foundation was granted an incredible $3,000!
Chloe Lofters
Smilezone friend Chloe wanted to give back to her community in a unique way. After sharing an inspiring presentation on Smilezone with her classmates, the grade six students unanimously voted to do something special. Chloe and her friends spent ten days selling homemade slime and hot chocolate at her school to raise money for Smilezone Foundation!
