Upcoming Events & Current Fundraising

The IWK Auxiliary recently celebrated its 70th anniversary. Several special events were held throughout the year.  Founded by a group of 22 women in May 1946, the Auxiliary has served as a source of volunteer support and as a major fund raising throughout its history.

Our major fundraising efforts are the gift shoppe, Biggs & Littles, and our annual fair, Kermesse.  We appreciate  the support of the greater IWK community and wish to remind you that  funds raised by the Auxiliary are dedicated to supporting the mandate of this Health Centre.  Please read about just some of our fundraising projects:
