Each year, CAISA Fashion Show has committed its efforts to raising funds for various charitable organizations. In the past, CAISA Fashion Show has sponsored the Canadian Red Cross, Children’s Aid Society of London and Middlesex, and Romania Project.
For the past fourteen years, CAISA Fashion Show has had the opportunity to sponsor the Children’s Health Foundation (CHF), a non-profit organization based in London, Ontario that supports the Children’s Hospital in the city. Our past shows have helped to raise over $200,000 for CHF, of which went to many areas within the foundation. Our contributions have led to many positive outcomes, from improved drug administration dosages for children to transportation and lodging for families in financial difficulties.

This year all proceeds will go to the Children’s Health Foundation to support personalized medicine. What is personalized medicine? When people become ill, they are often given the same medical treatment despite their bodily differences. Personalized medicine helps tailor health care to each person’s unique genetic makeup to provide individual patients with a more precise, predictable, and powerful treatment.
