Together we put “Smiles on Faces” this summer
This past summer, we were thrilled to be back with the second edition of our Smiles on Faces Program.
Working with our charity partners, Make-A-Wish Canada and the Toronto Ukrainian Foundation, we granted VIP visits to the Ex to 25 children with critical illnesses and displaced children from Ukraine, along with their families.
“We are truly so grateful to you for your work, checking in and your kindness, also the foundation and what they provide to families with children with critical illness and issues.”Alicia Lepoudre, mother of Charlotte Lepoudre
It was our honour to host these special guests this summer. Our Smiles on Faces families were treated to unlimited rides with front of the line access, meals and treats for the day, on-site supports and more. We were also able to cover the family’s local transportation costs to and from the CNE, and present them with a special CNE Family Gift Pack to remember their day.
Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, funders and individual donors, we were able to put smiles on the faces of some really great kids.
The CNE Foundation gratefully acknowledges North American Midway Entertainment, the Michael and Libby Goldgrub Foundation and the Government of Canada’s Canada Summer Jobs Program for their support of this initiative.
