In 1998, The Cedarbrook Society (the registered charity that owns and operates The Darling Home for Kids) launched the Comfort & Joy Gala. Over the past 17 years the event has raised in excess of $1.7 million. The proceeds have helped build Ontario’s first paediatric respite and palliative care centre, as well as fund the core services which support families with medically fragile children.  

The over 300 guests who attend the Comfort & Joy Gala are executives from many of the Greater Toronto Area’s top corporations operating in industries such as banking, technology, communications, construction and law. These guests, including some of the region’s most philanthropic families, are not only influential leaders, they are also culturally aware, well-travelled and active consumers of luxury goods. Many of the guests are regular attendees of the Gala, which lends to an intimate atmosphere and the perfect setting for client entertainment and reputation building.


The Comfort & Joy Gala is one of Halton’s premier events.  Our attendees are advocates for The Darling Home for Kids, people who represent our communities, significant leaders for both industry and in the not for profit sector, executives who are making a difference both professionally and charitably, and our sponsors, their guests and spouses.  

In addition to raising critical funds for The Darling Home for Kids, this black-tie event provides corporate sponsors incredible value for client entertainment or staff appreciation through an evening of cocktails, a sumptuous formal dinner, and an auction of spectacular items donated by our many generous corporate and individual sponsors.

The 18th Annual Comfort & Joy Gala on Thursday, November 3rd will bring guests along for "A First Class Escape" as we visit our favourite destinations and explore the sounds, sights and flavours each has to offer!  

Guests will arrive at ‘check-in’ before being directed to the departure lounge for some welcome drinks, pre-flight appetizers, and an opportunity make new friends before the journey ahead.  Our global itinerary then pairs alluring destinations with sensational events – a journey that is guaranteed to inspire the mind and the palate! Sight-seeing in Italy?  Shopping in Tokyo? Dinner in Paris? Why not!?  Our friendly tour guides will be on hand to assist you throughout the journey...so why not see what you can discover!?

We promise you will enjoy a most elegant and unique evening that exceeds every guest’s expectations!

À propos de cet organisme

The Darling Home for Kids provides high quality respite and palliative care services for children who are medically fragile and technology dependent, many of whom suffer from progressive illness. It has been an incredible journey. The Darling Home for Kids has been providing comfort and joy to families for over a decade. From the initial vision to the reality of a home away from home providing care to medically complex children for over a decade, we are truly a home filled with love. It is a fundamental philosophy of The Darling Home for Kids that all children be loved and valued, and given the opportunity to be challenged in an environment where they can thrive. We thank the caring people who have touched the organization in many ways: our generous donors, committed volunteers, building partners, the community, and all of the friends who believed in us and helped us along the way.
