|Single Tea Party Ticket
The Hubley family has been strongly committed to helping children suffering from mental health issues ever since their eldest son, Jamie, who suffered from depression, died by suicide in 2011. Working with community donors, and the CHEO Foundation since 2016, Wendy began her journey to help patients at CHEO by first redecorating and revitalizing the mental health department’s patient lounge, in loving memory of her beloved son. To this date, the event has raised more than $230,000 to support mental health care and services at CHEO.
CHEO is very grateful that the Hubley family’s unwavering support has been matched by the generosity of family, friends, and a caring business community. As the Volunteer Committee of the Wonderland Tea Party Event organizes this beloved event for the 9th year, it continues its mission to conduct fundraising efforts that will help more children have a brighter future. CHEO is also looking to the future as they embark on their ambitious plan to create the CHEO Integrated Treatment Centre, also known as 1Door4Care. This once in a generation investment will improve health services for children and youth living with complex medical, developmental, behavioral or mental health needs.
Prior to COVID-19, CHEO was facing a crisis in pediatric mental health, with a 90 percent increase in mental health emergency visits since 2010. Layer in isolation and uncertainty from the pandemic, followed by fears about a child's battle with despair and anxiety, and that keeps this heartbreaking crisis in overdrive.
This year’s Wonderland Tea Party Event will be emceed by the compassionate Katherine Dines from MOVE100 radio, with guests sampling a variety of tea sandwiches, sweets, and profiteroles, as well as specialty teas and coffee.
