Fundraising & Events



Since its inception more than 24 years ago, the Centre has operated without government funding. It exists primarily because of donations from local businesses, corporations, financial institutions, civic groups, churches and concerned individuals. This requires continued fundraising by teams of volunteers, who believe the Centre makes a difference in the lives of children served at the Centre. Our status is unique in Ontario, and our independence of any government body and its higher administrative costs means more funds collected go directly into treatment.

The Centre’s five major fundraising events are:

Special Bond-themed night at Port Theatre in Cornwall for Children’s Treatment Centre

Memories of this Children’s Treatment Centre fundraiser could last forever. A father and son team in Cornwall has planned a James Bond themed event that’ll have the feel of a Hollywood premiere, a special screening of the iconic 1995 spy film Goldeneye on Oct. 21, at a Port Theatre that will look even better than when it opened 80 years ago.
