Where does the money go?
All net proceeds raised from Hockey for Grace are donated to Emily’s House to help provide compassionate hospice support for children in their residential care and his/her family; or, help community hospice program support children in the comfort of their own home. With limited government funding Emily’s House looks to the community for additional funding to meet the increasing demand for programs and services as they are the only children’s hospice in the GTA.
As part of the Hockey for Grace donation to Emily’s House Chris and Amy have designated that a percentage of the donation be put aside for “Grace’s Adventure Fund”. While at Emily’s House they were blessed to be able to share many adventures with Grace which meant the world them and allowed them to create so many lasting memories that they will always hold dear to their hearts. They wanted to give this opportunity to others. Money put into Grace’s Adventure Fund is accessible as part of the intake/programming options each family that comes to Emily’s House for end-of-life care has access to for an adventure(s) of their choice.
Some remarkable adventures have been had including over-the-top parties, barbecues, outings to professional sporting events, and family celebrations just to name a few.
