Use of Funds
How are donations used for congenital heart disease research?
Dr. Seed and his colleagues are piloting a trial to test the potential of providing additional oxygen to pregnant mothers at 20 weeks gestation, for the remainder of their pregnancy, to determine if an increase of oxygen will improve neurological outcomes for their babies.
Though it’s too early to know definitively whether the treatment works, initial neonatal brain scan results are promising. These early results were presented at the 8th Annual Scientific Sessions of the Cardiac Neurodevelopmental Outcomes Collaborative meeting in Toronto last year.
Dr. Seed and the team have completed the first observational/imaging phase of the study and have now begun the interventional phase—administering the oxygen treatment to 15 patients, and counting.
All funds raised by the All-Star Gala for this project will be matched in full by a prestigious Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR) grant from the Canadian Institute for Health Research (CIHR).
About Sick Kids
Established in 1972, SickKids Foundation raises funds on behalf of The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) and is the largest charitable funder of child health research, learning and care in Canada. Philanthropy is a critical source of funding for SickKids – one of the world’s foremost paediatric health-care institutions.
As a national charity, SickKids Foundation not only invests in the important work taking place at SickKids, it also invests in national and international initiatives to benefit children in Canada and around the world. This commitment is true to the spirit of the Foundation’s founders, who articulated a vision for the Foundation that went well beyond the hospital walls 40 years ago.

What does my ticket get me?

Do I get a tax receipt with my ticket?
Unfortunately, tickets are not tax deductible. The reason being is that it isn’t a pure donation but rather a guest is receiving back value (entertainment, drinks, etc.) that is proportionate to their contribution.
