Event description
Where Fashion and Fun meet Philanthropy. A night out in support of REACH, the first and only Hirschsprung's Charity in Canada

About this Event

Reach Canada is excited to be working alongside Jaguar Land Rover and Swish to host our first event in support of children and families living with Hirschsprung disease. All of the funds raised at this event will go toward REACH's efforts to fund research, provide education and raise awareness solely in Canada.

The Vanity Party will inevitably be the must be at party of the year. Guests will enjoy a modern atmosphere while sipping in style. Our mixologist will be handcrafting signature cocktails from our live bar. Jump in one of our many fashion pods to take the ultimate selfie. While of course, knowing you’ve made a substantial difference in a child’s life.

Hirschsprung’s affects 1 in 5,000 children globally. Hirschsprung’s (HD) is a life-long rare bowel disease where nerve endings are absent from the colon resulting in a surgery called a pull through to remove and reattach the healthy colon. Hirschsprung’s is a life-long disease.

The family behind the Charity are the Crawford/Hofer's. Liz and Mark’s son Malachi was diagnosed with Hirschsprung’s disease at birth after spending a month in ICU. Malachi like many Hirschsprung’s children has had many hospital stays and procedures due to the complications of this rare disease. Recognizing a need for more resources and education for families the Hofer/Crawford’s partnered with the already established Reach U.S (2011) to create a Canadian branch of the organization. With a commitment to providing families and patients with the best care available, paediatric surgeons Dr. Richard Keijzer (Chief of Paediatric Surgery, Winnipeg’s Children’s Hospital), Dr. Jacob Langer (Toronto Sick Kids Hospital), along with NP Cindy Holland, (Winnipeg Children’s Hospital) and Kate Yacula (Treasurer & Marketing), also signed on as board members.

All sponsorship inquiries, and/or if you'd like to make a donation to the event you can email Kate at reachhdcanada@gmail.com

Cheers,

Liz
