Sheraton Gateway Hotel at Toronto Pearson International Airport recently visited the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto to present a cheque for $4,678.10.
The hotel team raised the money over the last four weeks through food sales at the employee cafeteria, bake sales, a spa day for associates and raffle from the hotel’s holiday celebration.
The hotel team was inspired to assist during an earlier visit to Sick Kids where they learned of the hospital’s struggle to raise funds for the teenagers, as most gifts donated at this time are for younger children. After that visit, the hotel set the goal to beat their summer collection and raise $2,100 by Dec. 11, an amount which they more than doubled.
