TORONTO WILDLIFE CENTRE’S WILD BALL is an evening held in support of the rescue, medical care and rehabilitation of sick, injured and orphaned animals.
This year, Toronto Wildlife Centre’s signature fundraising gala will take place on Thursday November 2nd at the Palais Royale Ballroom. This stunning venue is located at historic Sunnyside Beach on the shores of Lake Ontario. Together with our sponsors and guests, we hope to raise $200,000, funds which will directly support wildlife in need.
Since opening in 1993, TWC has become a vital and trusted community resource and the only wildlife hospital in the Greater Toronto Area. The busiest of its kind in Canada, TWC has helped more than 90,000 wild animals, reaching hundreds of thousands of people through our education and outreach channels.
Sick, injured and orphaned wild animals cannot pay their own medical bills but providing the highest quality compassionate care for wild patients costs money. Proceeds from Wild Ball go directly toward providing essential services including rescuing wild animals in life-threatening situations, and providing medical treatment and rehabilitative care.
Your participation in Wild Ball will help give wild animals in need their best chance at a healthy life in the wild.
Wild Ball tickets will be on sale this summer!
