Bliss Ball

With a commitment to give back to children battling an illness and their families at SickKids Hospital as well as raising awareness of the Patient Amenities Endowment Fund, The Dilawri Foundation created and hosted the Bliss Ball gala. The evening gala spanned over three consecutive years starting in 2012, offering an opportunity for Canada’s leaders in philanthropy, entertainment, media and politics a chance to join forces for a vital cause. The star studded events also brought out some of the biggest names from the world of entertainment including Shania Twain, Bryan Adams, Jennifer Hudson, Martin Sheen, and Chris Noth among others.
