The second annual Fired-Up Gala in support of the SickKids Burn and Plastics unit is taking place at the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto on Friday, February 23, 2024! The Fired-Up Gala in support of SickKids is a black-tie event, with 50% of proceeds dedicated to the Burn & Plastics unit and 50% to the hospital’s highest-priority needs. This annual event is organized by Roxy Zapala, founder of Toronto’s premier events firm, Art of Celebrations. Roxy was inspired to give back to SickKids, after witnessing the amazing care her 21-month-old son, Levi, received when he was rushed in with third-degree burns to his face, chest, and arms. The Fired-Up Gala aims to show its appreciation for everything that SickKids does for burn victims and their families.
Returning after last year’s major success, the gala aims to raise $75,000 in support of SickKids, with 50% going to the Burn & Plastics unit and 50% to SickKids Foundation’s fund dedicated to supporting the hospital’s highest-priority needs.
The evening starts at 6:00 pm with a red carpet cocktail hour including top shelf open bar, interactive performances, passed hors d’oeuvres and an oyster bar.
This year promises to be even more spectacular with the addition of an attention-grabbing fashion show for attendees to enjoy before a four-course dinner, with special guest speeches, live and silent auctions, raffles and much more. The DJ afterparty, including late-night bites & sweets, will kick off with a captivating performance by the iconic Canadian artist Karl Wolf!
SickKids Toronto has one of the largest and best-performing children’s burn units in North America, treating approximately 400 children a year. It is important to spread awareness about burn prevention and showcase and promote the amazing work that is being done to help burn victims and their families.
