Upcoming Events & Current Fundraising - Kermesse Cancelled


COVID-19 Update:

Kermesse, the annual fundraising fair by the IWK Auxiliary for patient/family comfort items and spaces will not be held as scheduled on May 30, 2020 due to COVID-19.



Founded by a group of 22 women in May 1946, the Auxiliary volunteered for the original Children's Hospital and has been fundraising for child/youth/family patient comfort items and spaces throughout its history.

Our major fundraising efforts include the IWK Biggs & Littles gift shop 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.
