Media Advisory - Children's Aid Foundation's 11th annual Recognition Night
and Award Ceremony

TORONTO, Sept. 28 /CNW/ - Over the last thirty years, the Children's Aid Foundation has raised over $100 million and helped more than one million abused and neglected children and youth across Canada.

But we couldn't have done this without the tremendous support of our corporate partners. In celebration of their generosity and in acknowledgment of the incredible determination of our youth who have gone on to post-secondary education, we are hosting our 11th annual Recognition Night.

The youth we are honouring are in care or former care of the Children's Aid Society. We are both proud and humbled by their determination and dedication. The Children's Aid Foundation would like to invite the media to join us as we celebrate these incredible youth and the corporations who have helped them reach their goals.
