What an Amazing Night.

Air Canada and SickKids are delighted to announce that Wanderluxe 2018 was a resounding success. Together, we raised more than $1.22 million. Funds raised support the Herbie Fund at SickKids and the Air Canada Foundation`s mission to support the health and wellness of children and youth in Canada and abroad.

More than 380 of Canada's fashionable and philanthropic gathered for an outstanding night of fun and philanthropy. Celebrity co-Hosts Dan Levy and Emily Hampshire inspired laughter and giving. Chef Hawksworth’s culinary magic delighted palates. Spectacular musical entertainment entranced ears and got everybody dancing.

Thank you to all our sponsors, guests, and fantastic committee who made this year’s event such a wonderful experience. Your commitment and generosity is changing lives.

Because where you live shouldn't determine if you live

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.

The two come together at Wanderluxe. Air Canada, its staff and customers donate the means to get to the hospital; SickKids staff donate their time and expertise. The patrons of Wanderluxe deliver the funds to make it happen.

It's philanthropy in synchronicity.



A world-class night for children from around the world.
