Hikvision Sponsors Gala for Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada
Hikvision provided gala sponsorship in support of a Starlight Family and donated a security camera kit for silent auction.
MONTREAL — Hikvision participated in the 23rd Annual Starlight Children’s Foundation Gala in Toronto recently to raise funds in support of the organization’s mission to bring comfort and joy to hospitalized children and their families.
Hikvision was a Starlight Family sponsor for the April 21 event. The global provider of video surveillance and other emerging technologies donated a 4-camera kit for the gala’s silent auction, which sold for $1,000.
Hikvision distribution sales manager for Canada, Clark Northcott, attended the gala with his wife. The Northcotts have been a Starlight Family since January. Their daughter Ella’s dream trip was granted through the Starlight Wish Program, which gives a seriously ill child the opportunity to select a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
“The gala was an inspiring event, and we were grateful to be there to help raise funds to support all the ways Starlight gives back to families such as ours. Starlight granted Ella’s wish this year, and our family was flown to Florida for a week long, cost-free trip by the nonprofit,” says Northcott. “Ella had a blast. We spent time at Disney World, Universal Studios, and SeaWorld, with VIP passes to every ride and event at the parks. The trip helped our family experience a new sense of hope, strength and excitement; our worries were forgotten.”
Held at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel, the gala featured a dinner, silent auction, entertainment and speeches from select Starlight Wish families. The Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada has been supporting the lives of Canadian children who live with serious illness and their families, using its various programs to provide relief, entertainment, special family memories and a renewed sense of strength and hope.
“The Starlight Foundation is an incredible organization, and Hikvision is proud we could raise funds with our Canadian team members to support their efforts for children living with serious illness and injury,” says Alex Asnovich, head of marketing, Hikvision North America.
