Air Canada Partners With SickKids Foundation To Launch Wanderluxe Gala
The brainchild of Michael Friisdahl, former President of the Air Canada Leisure Group, the Air Canada Foundation and SickKids Foundation have launched Wanderluxe, their new fundraising gala and travel auction to support The Herbie Fund at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. The gala has already sold out all of the tables for the new event to be held April 7th. The online bidding site www.wanderluxe.ca will go live 29MAR featuring 20 very special Air Canada Vacations packages that include Air Canada Altitude Elite 35k Status for a year. The live auction will include a number of Business Class trips to Italy, France, India and other AC destinations in Asia.
Funds raised at Wanderluxe will support children and their families through both The Herbie Fund and the SickKids Foundation, bringing children from around the world for critical surgeries at SickKids that they cannot get in their own countries.
