The Slaight Family Foundation supported 1,867 Bigs and Littles for 23 unique cultural, recreational and artistic events in 2017. Without their sponsorship, the opportunity to experience live theatre, hear the TSO symphony, spend a day at the Zoo, and take part in many hands-on activities would not have been possible.

These events have given the children and youth we serve the opportunity to thrive and expand their horizons. For most of them this is the only chance they have to partake in unique artistic and cultural experiences. These transformative moments also strengthen a match’s relationship creating stronger bonds through shared experiences.

We are deeply grateful for the continued generosity of The Slaight Family Foundation and look forward to creating many more exciting moments for our Bigs and Littles in 2018.
