The Fortune Ball supports MSH

On Saturday, November 26, Markham Stouffville Hospital (MSH) Foundation will host its inaugural The Fortune Ball presented by TD.

Guests will come together at the Hilton Toronto/Markham Suites to celebrate the modern tradition of Chinese culture during an enchanting evening filled with elegant charm and outstanding entertainment. The evening will feature emcee, Jennifer Hsiung, co-host of CP24 Breakfast, along with other special guests.

North America’s premiere tribute band, Bee Gees Now, will headline the entertainment sponsored by Flato Developments. This dynamic cover band brings the musical experience of the original Bee Gees to today’s stage in a captivating live tribute to the multi-platinum kings of disco.

MSH Foundation aims to promote community pride within the local Chinese-Canadian population and inspire Chinese business and philanthropic leaders to help bring abundant blessings to MSH through the sharing of their good fortune and prosperity.

Community leaders and founding members of MSH Foundation’s Fortune Leadership Council (FLC) have taken on the role of co-chairs of this inaugural gala. The members include Kenny Wan, Alan Kwong, Gordon Chan, David Ho and Stephen Li. FLC is a network of local Chinese business leaders who came together in 2016 with a mission to give back to the hospital.

“Our community depends on Oak Valley Health’s Markham Stouffville Hospital to deliver a lifetime of care closer to home. And the community plays an important role in ensuring Markham Stouffville Hospital has life-saving equipment and innovative technology,” Wan said “There is a Chinese proverb that says — ‘If you always give, you will always have.’”

Access to the most state-of-the-art equipment is essential for MSH to continue providing the exceptional, patient-centred care the community needs and deserves, close to home.  Urgent and emerging needs abound within surgery, diagnostic imaging and emergency medicine — directly related to the rapidly expanding and aging population that MSH serves. Government can’t fund all critical equipment and top-priority needs. Community support is the reason patients can count on MSH for exceptional, life-saving care, regardless of what brings them through the doors.

“The past two years have brought some of the most challenging times we’ve faced — as a community and as a hospital. Now, more than ever, the support from the community means everything, said Suzette Strong, CEO of MSH Foundation. “Funds raised through The Fortune Ball will enable MSH to remain on the cutting-edge of patient care, prepared to provide life-saving care and treatment to every patient, in any scenario.”
