Hatsquerade You

Live Event

Hats On For Awareness has consistently been a champion for Mental Health and Addiction within the GTA. Since 2009, our annual Hatsquerade gala, has raised almost $1,000,000 for Mental Health Initiatives. We could not have done this without the passion and hard work of our amazing supporters dedicated to being a beacon for change. Supporters, just like you. Many of us wear numerous hats. We are parents, business people, students, friends, sisters/brothers and husbands/wives. Regardless of the time of day, we show up for the ones we love, for our businesses, for the world. And if the COVID-19 pandemic has done anything, it has shed light on the importance of addressing our personal mental health challenges to ensure that we are able to persevere and thrive for our families, our friends and ourselves. This year at Hats On For Awareness, we decided that it was time to shift our focus. This year’s Hatsquerade Experience will all be about YOU.

If you share our vision of mental wellness for all and want to help, consider hosting your own fundraising event and donating the money you raise to Hats On For Awareness.

Here are some ideas:

  • do a 50/50 draw at your office
  • host a bake sale
  • hold a car wash
  • organize a street or neighbourhood garage sale

Donating the funds you raise to Hats On For Awareness will help to fund mental health initiatives across the GTA.
