Along with her endeavours with family, friends, her law practice and singing jazz; every year in the Fall Barb allows her inner artist escape to create a Halloween display and event. This activity has evolved since it’s modest beginnings in 1998, and Barb now paints life sized posters of beloved pop icons which are mounted outside for Halloween along with pumpkins and other display items.
The ‘Heddington Halloween’ event has morphed into an epic undertaking because Barb realized it would be fun to display all of her previous themes every year, along with the newest display. Now Barb and a veritable army of friends and neighbours decorate about 30 homes along Heddington Avenue for Halloween. We would love to see you at the display, but in the meantime please enjoy the Halloween Gallery.
Several years ago Barb realized that this event could help generate donations for a worthy cause. In 2013, the annual Heddington Halloween display became an official community fundraiser for SickKids Foundation (Hospital for Sick Children).
Our Heddington Halloween event in October 2023 was a smashing success, with contributions from so many wonderful and generous donors. Heddington Halloween 2024 will be here before you know it! Have a great year everyone!
Donations to SickKids can be made on site at the annual Heddington Halloween display or, if you wish, please visit BARB’S PERSONAL SICKKIDS FOUNDATION PAGE.
All DONATIONS make a profound impact on the future of children’s health.
An electronic tax receipt for online donations will be provided by SickKids Foundation.
For any online donation related questions, please contact.
