Pongapalooza's Impact On Kids In Need
Since 2012, Pongapalooza has raised over $180,000 for First Book Canada, providing thousands of brand-new books to children in need.

With generous support from our sponsors at RBC Capital Markets, First Book Canada is elevating the quality of education for children in need on a permanent, sustainable basis – but we cannot do it alone. Our partners in getting life-changing books to kids represent some of the smartest, most generous organizations across the for-profit and nonprofit sectors, and we want you to join us in this fun ping pong event.

Help us reach thousands of Canadian children who want to experience the joy of reading and owning their very own first book.
