CFPDP’s No. 1 Fundraising Event
The Great Valentine Gala, held every February in Toronto, is the CFPDP’s No. 1 fundraising event. It has raised over $35 million and has become a glittering showcase for the unheralded achievements of physically challenged Canadians everywhere. “It’s changed the way we think about people with disabilities.” Its driving force has been Toronto businessman, philanthropist and CFPDP founder Vim Kochhar.
We’ve had over 22,000 people at the Gala since it started in 1985 and active involvement from many of our leading corporations. “It’s a great way to build awareness.” Great Valentine Gala revenues have helped support many organizations, programs, services, special events and homes for many physically disabled Canadians.
