The IWK Auxiliary is a non-profit registered charity which has been raising funds for child/family patient care and comfort items since 1946. Kermesse is our biggest fundraiser for the IWK Health Centre which serves all of the Maritimes. All proceeds from the fair will go toward the provision of patient care & comfort items and innovative programs within the IWK.

How supporting Kermesse helps IWK patients and their families:

For over 70 years, the IWK Auxiliary has been raising money for patient comfort items and programs within the IWK Health Centre. What does this mean? Here are just a few of the amazing ways the Auxiliary has provided essential and often groundbreaking help to the IWK’s children, youth and families, and the staff who care for them:

* Funds the operational budget of the IWK Family Library which provides reliable health information to parents; it is a pleasant family space with Internet access
* Financially supports the IWK Rehabiliative Equipment Loan program which lends adaptive equipment to children with special needs so that they can be active
* Purchases movies, games and consoles, books and TVs for floors throughout the IWK Health Centre; toys for Child Life specialists to give to patients on birthdays
* Has provided funding to many innovative IWK programs to help children/youth: Read to Me (books for newborn babies); Music Therapy; the Playgarden and more!
