The Masquerade Ball, Saturday 26th October, 6.30pm. Tickets on Sale now!!
We Are “Dream-Makers”
Since 1987, Sunshine has been trusted by families and healthcare providers to make dreams come true for 7,000 kids across Canada .
The Sunshine Foundation is the only national Canadian charity to provide individual dreams to children with severe physical disabilities (such as spina bifida or cerebral palsy) as well as life-threatening illnesses. In fact, 80% of Sunshine Kids are challenged by a severe physical disability.
Sunshine is the legacy of a father’s love for his son. After losing his teenage son to muscular dystrophy, a London, Ontario, police officer created The Sunshine Foundation of Canada to brighten the lives of other children and families by fulfilling their most cherished dreams – from meeting a sports hero to seeing a foreign country, or having a special gift like an adaptive bicycle.
Sunshine was the first organization to bring DreamLifts to Canadian children. Sunshine’s one-day, whirlwind DreamLift adventures transport 80 children by plane to an exciting destination such as a Disney theme park.
As a national charitable organization, Sunshine is powered by volunteer chapters across the country and governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The small staff team of Dream-Makers operates out of London , Ont. – where Sunshine was founded in 1987.
This year’s Ball is being held at Ashbury College on Saturday, October 26th, 6.30 ‘til late. ZOLAS is back this year catering the event and offering a sumptuous dinner selection. http://www.zolas.ca/.

We hope you can join us and help us make DREAMS come true for severely disabled “Sunshine Kids” !!
