What an amazing night.
SickKids and Air Canada are delighted to announce that Wanderluxe 2017 was a resounding success. Together, we raised more than $1 million. Funds raised will support the missions of the Herbie Fund and Air Canada Foundation. The Herbie Fund at SickKids extends our fight by bringing kids from around the globe to the hospital for life-changing surgeries. The Air Canada Foundation extends our reach enabling kids with challenges to reach their full potential, and enabling kids with complex medical issues to reach the right care.
More than 360 of Canada's travel-loving philanthropists gathered in a bespoke location for a fun night. This year's gastronomic tour de force featured Air Canada's culinary partner David Hawksworth. Guests were also treated to an exclusive Cirque du Soleil experience drawn from JOYÀ, the Cirque's resident show in Mexico.
Thank you to all our sponsors, guests, and committee, who made this year's event such a wonderful experience. Your commitment and generosity is already changing lives.

SickKids has the doctors; Air Canada has the planes. At Wanderluxe, the complementary missions of the Air Canada Foundation and the Herbie Fund at SickKids meld.
The Air Canada Foundation extends reach: enabling kids with challenges to reach their full potential, and enabling kids with complex medical issues to reach the right care.
The Herbie Fund extends SickKids fight to make every kid a healthy kid to the world: bringing kids from around the globe to the hospital for life-changing surgeries.
On April 6, 2017, our guests and sponsors joined us at Wanderluxe, completing the picture by delivering the funds to make it happen.
It's philanthropy in synchronicity.

On behalf of SickKids Foundation and the Air Canada Foundation, we want to thank our 2017 sponsors whose generosity made this event possible.
The Herbie Fund at SickKids extends our fight by bringing children from around the world to the hospital for life-changing surgeries, while the Air Canada Foundation extends our reach with their travel expertise and mission to help connect sick children to medical care. Together, they assist some of the world's most disadvantaged children to get life-changing help at SickKids.
We send a heartfelt thank you to every member of the Wanderluxe committee for the precious gift of their time and energy. Without their support this event would not have been possible.
