The Guelph Wish Fund for Children hosts two fundraising events each year - our Annual Gala, and Golf Tournament. These events provide a good opportunity for our community to come together, and support our activities.

We appreciate the efforts of companies and individuals who put on events of their own in support of the Guelph Wish Fund for Children. If you want to hold an event, contact us with the details of your event and we will be happy to help.

We hope to see you at one of our events!
