Every year, Children's Health Foundation of Vancouver Island holds two major events to raise funds for Island children.

Foundation's Signature Events

  • Kaleidoscope Ball (Victoria)
    This annual springtime formal gala is an enchanting evening of magic and entertainment for the whole family--a dinner and dance that celebrates and strengthens the special relationship that parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles share with the children they love
  • Bear Wear (Victoria)
    A beloved holiday tradition, Bear Wear is a festive display of cuddly teddy bears dressed up in costumes by local businesses, organizations, and individuals. Spectators enjoy choosing their favourite bear while contemplating the season of giving and the importance of thinking of others. Bear Wear is held between November and January.

Community Fundraising Events

In addition to our major events, we partner with people in the community who hold fundraising events on our behalf and donate the proceeds. From children's twoonie birthday parties, to office jeans days, to Highland Pacific's Golf Tournament to benefit Jeneece Place, we have welcomed the tremendous support of the community to put on a variety of fundraising events to help local kids.

Upcoming Community Fundraising Events:
