Wedding Favours in Support of North York General Foundation - Newlywed couple

Wedding favours that Go Beyond Care

When Melissa and Matthew were planning their September 2017 wedding, they wanted to do something special to honour Matthew’s late Uncle Ross.

“It was difficult knowing that he would not be there with us,” says Matthew. “We wanted to do something that made him a part of a celebration.”

Supporting the hospital where Ross received chemotherapy treatments was the perfect fit.

“The idea of donating to North York General in lieu of wedding favours was one that we made together,” explains Matthew. “Even during such a difficult time, my aunt and uncle always told us how well he was treated there. We knew that putting these funds toward something meaningful would be much more appreciated than a small gift by our guests.”

These days, more and more couples are trading in the tchotchkes and candy favours of the past, focusing instead on supporting causes near and dear to their hearts.

With the 2018 wedding season quickly approaching, many couples are busy planning their spring and summer nuptials. If you or a loved one is getting married this year, consider donating to North York General in lieu of favours. Olivia Tierney, would be happy to walk you through the steps and help make your special day all the more meaningful.

“Wedding planning can be stressful, but North York General Foundation helped make this process incredibly easy,” says Melissa. “We couldn’t be happier with our decision to support the hospital. Our families were supportive and we just know that Uncle Ross would be proud.”
