The History of the Dream Ball
Margaret Davies was a Social Worker for the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society from 1983 to 1998. At that point in time there were no extra activities in which the children receiving support from the agency could participate, and so Margaret founded the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Foundation.
Margaret met with a number of her friends and in 1993 launched a fundraising event called the Dream Ball. This group of women and men donated hundreds of volunteer hours to make their fundraising effort a success, and it was! From sewing props, to hanging decorations, obtaining items for the silent auction, to selling tickets – they did it all! The first Dream Ball took place in 1994, raised $15,000.00 and sent 45 children to summer camp.
That same dedicated group of volunteers has performed their magic every year since and at the 2016 Dream Ball more than $85,000.00 was raised for children to attend summer camp. In its 24 years, the Foundation has sent 4,529 children to summer camp with a fund raising total of $1,857,062.64, primarily achieved through our major funding event, the annual Dream Ball.
Things are gearing up in 2017 and our committee is very excited to present a “Timeless 1960’s” themed ball, based on the style of the Jersey Boys and the Jackie O. era. We have many surprises in store for the 23rdth annual Dream Ball to be held on Saturday November 18th, 2017… Check this page regularly for more exciting updates!
