Over the past 18 years, the Festival of Giving has evolved into one of Chatham-Kent’s most premiere events, annually attracting over 1,100 guests and volunteers, hundreds of auction items, and raising on average $225,000 annually. The lead organization, and primary beneficiary of FOG, the Children’s Treatment Centre Foundation of Chatham-Kent, works to raise community awareness and funds for the Children’s Treatment Centre, which provides quality care to children in our community who have physical, developmental, or communication challenges. It is through Chatham-Kent’s continued, overwhelming support of the Festival and our generous supporters that the CTC Foundation has been able to donate well over $450,000, since 2011, to deserving organizations within our community including Big Brothers Big Sisters of Chatham-Kent, Habitat for Humanity Chatham-Kent, and Thamesville Sertoma.
Annually, the Festival of Giving sells out the first week of ticket sales. The event attracts business owners or professionals from Chatham-Kent, Southwestern Ontario, and even the GTA.
