Second Annual Tea & Tiaras in Support of the Starlight Foundation - October 25th, 2015

As a mom, it always upsets me to see any child suffer. Whether it's the tears from a skinned knee, the anticipation of surgery, or facing a terrifying diagnosis, it's so difficult to see kids dealing with the fear and pain. Childhood is for sure a time for exploration and throwing caution to the wind, which can lead to lots of bumps and bruises and even broken bones, but anything that lands a wee one in hospital is especially heart-wrenching.

Childhood should be a time of fun and dreams and laughter. Which is why I love the great work done by the Starlight Children's Foundation. For more than 23 years they've been supporting seriously ill children and their families with both in-hospital distraction and entertainment, as well as out-of-hospital special experiences through their Wishes and Escapes programs.

This registered charitable organisation depends on the generosity of donors to support their important work, and they find ways to make giving fun through special events, like this month's Tea & Tiaras, happening October 25, at Toronto's Fairmont Royal York. Hosted by CBC News Now's Suhana Meharchand, and running from 1-4pm, the event promises an elegant afternoon of raising awareness and funds for Starlight Canada.
