"After two-years of virtual galas, we could not be more thrilled to be back in-person in support of the more than half a million children we serve in many of the world's neglected crises" says Dr. Samantha Nutt, Founder & President, War Child Canada. "This night not only raises critical funds and awareness for our humanitarian programs, but also highlights the important work the organization has accomplished over the past two plus decades and hopes to achieve in the future."

"Being a parent has strengthened my commitment to War Child and its amazing work protecting children from the devastation of war," states actor and War Child ambassador Thomas Sadoski. "I am grateful for the platform I have to advocate for and support War Child, and I strongly encourage others to do so also. Their work is life saving and so important, especially during these increasingly fragile times."
