Hopefest is an idea...

That those who help you through your harsh times need a little help every now and then too. SickKids Hospital in Toronto plays such a major role in the lives of so many kids out there, and we want to help them keep up the good work. Our major objective is to run a patient friendly show experience using product donations of every kind, while contributing much needed funds to The Hospital For Sick Children in Toronto, through the excellent work of Child Life Specialists at SickKids Foundations. From music gear to bands, costumed crusaders, water, everything we offer is donated in some way thanks to the generous contributions from the local community in Georgina, and across the country.
For more information, visit our about us page or donate to our Sick Kids Online link and have your donation go directly to the hospital. Also a great way for family from other places who cannot attend the show to be involved, courtesy of a very special idea we will announce soon.

Hopefest

Our major objective is to run a patient friendly show experience using product donations of every kind. From music gear to bands, costumed crusaders, water, everything we offer is donated in some way. The reason we focus on product donation is The Foundation sends out 100% deductible tax exception paperwork for product donation as opposed to the 19% deduction that goes with a cash donation. Last year through product donation, we were able to acquire some very cool raffle prizes from a motivational speakers promotion company. Col. Chris Hadfield signed a guitar for us along with two copies of his book, Canadian Gold Medalists Hayley Wickenhieser and Matt Duchane signed Olympic Gold Medal Hockey Jerseys among other Canadian Olympic Team memorabilia. We organized a local building supply retailer to donate the materials to build a life sized table soccer game and found over $6000 in Halloween costumes to take right to the hospital for our cheque presentation. One of our main acts, Starsik, and another friend of ours, Scott Reid from LiveLargeMusic, who has his own experiences with Sick Kids, did a show in The Bear Theatre that was viewed by patients via Sick Kids Patient Channel, on the same day. When we raffled off the Olympic Jerseys at Hopefest in August of last year, the winner of the Hayley Wickenhieser jersey donated it back to us on the condition that we took it to the hospital for a patient hockey fan, which we were very happy to do. These are just a few examples of the great things our group is able to do with the generous support of donors.

Hopefest Amazon Warriors Crew, Bob Walker, Anne Jefferson, Joanne Pughand Pixster Hartwick had the opportunity to attend the cheque presentation at SickKids Hospital in Toronto.

SickKids also presented our young Amazon Warrior, Jessica Greene from Team "Hope In Motion" with a Certificate of Recognition for collecting the highest dollar amount in pledges. We would like to thank Jessica's Mother, Pixster and all the family and friends who gave their support and made this entire experience possible for Jessica.

After the presentations, our group was given a tour of the newly renovated Marnie's Studio and recording equipment that patients have access to who are musically inclined and where special events and concerts are held.

"PROM 2016" was recently held for the patients who are still receiving treatments and I must say it was heartwarming for all of us to hear the prom stories and share how youth develop special friendships with each other and maintain those friendships even after leaving the hospital.

Thank you SickKids Foundation Staff and Child Life Specialists for all that you do on behalf of every child at the hospital.
Thank you to everyone who participated and supports Hopefest Amazon Warriors. SickKids could not provide the excellent level of care that they do without the ongoing support of dedicated volunteers and donations.
