In the end, thanks to our wonderful donors we raised $32,600 in the last ten years for Sick Kids and had such a great time along the way.

Happy (Future) Halloweens, everyone!!!

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 final Heddington Halloween event in October 2023 was a smashing success, with contributions from so many wonderful and generous donors.

All of your DONATIONS over the years made a profound impact on the future of children’s health. Thank you SO much!!! For any SickKids Foundation related questions you may have, please contact:
