2020 Hong Fook Gala
2020 Hong Fook Gala will be hosted on Saturday, June 6, 2020, at Hilton Toronto/Markham Suites Conference Centre & Spa in Markham.
This year, 2020 Hong Fook Gala is raising critical fund for Hong Fook Youth and Family Hub. Hong Fook launched Youth and Family Hub in February 2019 with supports from government funding, as well many donors and sponsors who supported the 2018 and 2019 Hong Fook Gala. In one year’s time, we recognized that a lot more work needed to be done to support our youth and families.
Early intervention and treatment is critical and cost effective. In Canada, 70% of mental health problems have their onset during childhood or adolescence. Young people aged 15 to 24 are more likely to experience mental illness and/or substance use disorders than any other age group. In Ontario, wait times of six months to one year are common for children and youth to access counselling and therapy. The longer they are left untreated, the more debilitating they become. Those situations often lead to other costly, long-term chronic conditions.
All the net proceeds will go directly to fund Hong Fook Mental Health Association programs and services. Join us and “Take the Mental Health Journey Together.” To know how to become a sponsor of the Gala, please read our sponsorship information.
