Since its inception, the Canadian Dominican Ray of Hope was destined to flourish.  Little did we know that a simple desire to “give back” would set the stage for what was to come.

Whether we judge our achievements by the amount of funds raised or the level of dedication and commitment of our founders, friends, family, volunteers, sponsors and community members, we continue to be successful beyond our expectations.

What began as a grassroots gesture of kindness and generosity has blossomed into a Canadian Registered Charity that not only helps provide for children in dire need, but also unites the community both here and abroad.

Thanks to the hard work of our volunteers, attendance has consistently increased and more corporate sponsors and community supporters have become involved. As a result, we continue to operate proudly with 100% of funds raised going directly to this worthy cause.
