An update on COVID-19:
To our Daytrippers community,
The safety and well-being of our volunteers, teachers, students and community partners remain our top priority. As children across the country begin a new school year, the experience will be different from ever before. The impact of the global pandemic has created the need for agility in support programs and these extraordinary circumstances have reinforced Daytrippers' commitment to enabling enriching learning opportunities for children in need.
Given the ever-changing landscape, we'll continue to adapt our programming with the support of our volunteers and community partners. We'll share these changes and additional resources in the coming weeks.
Be safe and stay well,
The Daytrippers Team
Battle of The Brains
Once a year, we host our gala event hosted in Toronto, the Battle of the Brains! This interactive trivia contest with business and civic leaders across Canada is conducted over a gourmet meal, black tie and cocktails. Battle of the Brains is a notable evening in the world of Toronto fundraisers – and we attract a pretty high-profile crowd! Each year the gala is hosted by a special celebrity guest – big names from Robert Herjavec to Dolly Parton have all had a hand in Battle of the Brains over the years.
If the cause is not enough to motivate you, the event will. It’s consistently quoted as one of the most fun charity nights of the year. We all know how intense family game night can be… now imagine bigger. Each year we bring together Toronto's brightest (and most competitive) professionals to answer a series of trivia questions on everything from popular 80's lyrics to Gangnam Style. One of the questions even involved identifying the 'mystery spice' on your table using only the sense of smell. Each year the battle is fierce, as teams vie for the coveted Battle Cup and bragging rights for the year!
In the last two years, Battle of the Brains has raised over $225,000 to fund school trips for children across Canada!
