It is with heavy hearts we must inform you that this year’s Set Sail for Hope scheduled for Friday, September 11, 2020 – has been cancelled. The current coronavirus pandemic and its restrictions have led us to conclude we will not be able to host our annual event in support of Camp Trillium. This is the first time in 33 consecutive years that we’ve had to cancel.
Even though Camp Trillium is physically closed this summer, cancer doesn’t take a break and the Camp is still supporting children and their families during the pandemic. Ongoing programming includes: virtual sleepovers, science experiments, traditional campfires and Camp in a Box – a box of camp goodies and activities that families can use at home and in the hospital.
Though we’ll miss the usual fun and fellowship of our event this year; join us in a virtual fundraising event commencing Monday June 22, 2020.
OUR GOAL IS TO RAISE $100,000.00
Two of our corporate sponsors have donated their table purchases to get us started at $20,001.00. Thanks to Bell and Citibank for reserving tables then deciding to convert their table sponsorship to a virtual donation when they learned we had to cancel.
With your help, we’re going to reach this goal via online donations. Together, the whole Set Sail for Hope Family will collectively crew our yacht through Toronto Harbour. Every donation will put the vital wind in our sails that will get us to our destination goal. Visit the Set Sail for Hope fundraising page to donate and watch us advance along our course.
As always, every donation its 100% tax deductible. An added bonus is that certain levels of giving will include your name in a draw for 2 tickets to Set Sail for Hope 2021. The more you give, the more chances you get in the draw.
Thank you for your willingness to support Camp Trillium through the Set Sail For Hope Event. Camp Trillium (officially the Trillium Childhood Cancer Support Centre) maintains charitable status with the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA), and relies almost entirely on donations, both cash and in-kind. Camp Trillium’s registration number is: 13159 9060 RR0001
This page summarizes all the ways you can help or participate in our 33rd anniversary event which takes place on Friday September 11th. If making a donation or reserving a plate or table, please know that 100% of your donation goes directly to Camp Trillium and will help send children living with cancer to their camps. You will receive a tax receipt for any donations of $20 or more.
We believe it is important to ensure that all proceeds benefit the children and their families directly with none of the funds being re-directed to administration or organization of our event. All of our hospitality partners, supporters, skippers and sponsors volunteer or donate ALL of their time and effort to make Set Sail For Hope such a special day.
