Toronto's Newest Family Day Out Offers Something for Everyone

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 23, 2010) - The ultimate family funfest Funday Sunday arrives on November 28, 2010 to entertain Torontonians of all ages in support of Sunnybrook's Women & Babies Program and the Canadian Hadassah-WIZO Toronto (CHW), which is dedicated to the health care of women and children in Israel. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Metro Convention Centre, and with family passes priced at only $39, this is one event that Toronto families will not want to miss!

Presented by Dancap Productions, Funday Sunday offers something for everyone:

  • a marketplace with designer goods and deep discounts
  • a Children's Village with bouncy castles, face painting, games and talented performers 
  • a fun zone with an arcade and a skateboard park for teens
  • an "ask an health expert" booth hosted by Sunnybrook staff

"We are honoured to have the support of this joint partnership between Sunnybrook and the CHW," says Dr. Andrew Shennan, chief of the Women & Babies Program. "A part of the proceeds from Funday Sunday will help our world-class staff continue to deliver the highest level of care in what is now one of the most advanced maternity wards in North America."

The new Women & Babies facility at Sunnybrook officially opened its doors to the public in September 2010. This 120, 000 square foot facility, which has received international acclaim for its leading-edge design, will now be able to accommodate up to 4,250 births each year – 500 more births than the previous facility.

"CHW Toronto's partnership with Sunnybrook allows us to continue the important work of supporting our most vulnerable women and children," says Sarah Granatowicz, president of the Canadian Hadassah-WIZO Toronto. "CHW has a long and rich history of supporting children, healthcare, and women both here in Toronto and in Israel."
