Gala helps children with chronic illnesses
North York Mirror
A fundraiser to help families pay for medical costs for chronically ill children will be held Saturday, March 2 at The Warehouse at Downsview Park, 35 Carl Hall Rd., at 8:15 p.m.
The Caring to the Core Gala is being held to raise money for Aaron’s Apple, a charity that has collected more than $220,000 to help families in need.
After being diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at age seven, Aaron, from Thornhill, depended on $40,000 worth of annual medication to help ease his pain. Fortunately his parents had insurance to pay the bills, but Aaron realized not everyone is as fortunate.
Every time he went to the hospital, he would give a donation in an effort to make another child feel better. From there, Aaron’s Apple was born.
Tickets cost $118 per person and $180 for patrons.
