CHAPTER HIGHLIGHTS Trees of Joy Light Up the Holiday Season Ontario Chapter Children’s Wish Ontario Chapter (based in Pickering) hosted their first Trees of Joy event at the Fairmont Royal York in November 2016. Trees of Joy is a festive corporate fundraiser in support of local wish-granting efforts. Each 10-member corporate team decorated a tree, themed to the interests of a specific wish child, and raised $10,000 to help grant their partnered child’s heartfelt wish. We are immensely grateful for the enthusiastic participation of the teams from our partners LoyaltyOne, Fairmont Royal York, Usmar Family, RBC, Webb Family office, Barrick Gold and Unifor Local 79M. Event sponsors, Sheridan Nurseries, Fairmont Royal York and Phillips Moving and Storage, deserve special thanks for helping to bring the spirit of the season into the hearts of our wish children, Gabe, Brandon, Arianna, Alex, Gabriel, Leighton, Max and Martina. We are looking forward to continuing this annual tradition again in December 2017! Seven corporate teams raised $10,000, each to help grant their partnered child’s heartfelt wish. 9
