Welcome to The Foundling’s Virtual Fall Fete!

For the first time in our 150-year history, our annual event will  include a series of virtual events, celebrating Our Everyday Heroes.

First, three mini-events will provide insight into The Foundling’s work during the pandemic. This will lead up to our main celebration on October 27 which will allow us to come together and recognize our neighbors that have displayed dedication, courage, and commitment while helping others weather the storm of COVID-19.

If you would like to support our efforts, please consider joining us and members of our Foundling Family through our series of events as we honor our community of everyday heroes. While general admission is free for all events, 100% of donations will be used to support the people and programs at The Foundling.

View our Fall Fete events below – we look forward to you joining us in celebrating The Foundling’s work and our resilient community.
