April 25 - Glitter 2020


On April 27, 2019, members of the Chinese-Canadian community came out and sparkled at the sixth annual Glitter, benefiting the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids).

The evening was spectacular and raised more than $485,000 to help build state-of-the art operating suites. For kids in Canada, this means less pain and fewer complications. For surgeons in China, this means a place to learn and train that will improve outcomes at home.

Over 500 guests gathered at The Carlu to experience a night of icons, gaming, and giving. The incredible cuisines, spectacular entertainment, and lavish prizes made it a night to remember.

Congratulations to our Lucky Draw winner, Paddy Andrews who won two round trip Business Class First tickets to anywhere Star Alliance Member Airlines flies, plus two weeks hotel stay, generously donated by United Airlines.

Congratulations also goes out to the winner of the inaugural SickKids Glitter Poker Grand Cup, Seth Wassyng!

See how they glittered.

From the players at the tables, to the icons gracing the bar, previous Glitters have been unmissable for the who's who of Toronto's Chinese community.
