An early fundraising event

Monday, October 7, 1912

The KGH Women's Aid was founded in 1906 and within one year had 110 members. They held their first fundraising event, "Made in Canada", in 1907 and in 1912 they held one of their most successful early  fundraising events, the "Festival of Empire", which raised funds towards the construction of the Empire Wing.

This organization, now known as the KGH Auxiliary, was one of the first of its kind in Ontario.
