Ronald McDonald House Toronto spreads holiday cheer with Sparkle Gala

December 11th, 2012 (Toronto, ON) – On Thursday, December 13th, Ronald McDonald House Toronto will create a glittering soiree with its Holiday Chic - Sparkle Gala. This special evening will support families of seriously ill children who stay at Ronald McDonald House Toronto while their child receives life-saving medical treatment at nearby paediatric hospitals.

Holiday Chic - Sparkle guests will hear live performances from Canadian philanthropist Eleanor McCain and the Starlight Orchestra, and 2012 Juno Group of the Year – The Arkells. 

Proceeds from the event will go directly to Ronald McDonald House Toronto, a “home away from home” for families of seriously ill children to heal better, as well as its programs and services like the Ronald McDonald Family Room Program, an extension of the House which provides a place of healing comfort for families inside the hospital, steps away from their ill babies.
