Laughter is the Best Medicine II Rocks the House and Raises $2.5 Million for Toronto East General Hospital!
Thank you to our Benefactors, Sponsors, Guests, Volunteers and Performers for making our second comedy gala, Laughter is the Best Medicine II, another rollicking success!
A packed house of nearly 1,500 of Toronto’s über-glamorous enjoyed a sensational evening of mirth and merriment at the Allstream Centre on Saturday, September 27th, at Toronto East General Hospital Foundation’s second hilarious comedy gala, Laughter is the Best Medicine II.
With BMO Financial Group returning as Presented Sponsor, the evening was hosted, once again, by Toronto’s own actor, Will Arnett, of Up All Night and Arrested Development fame, who generously donated his time and talent to emcee the event and had the crowd in stitches. Top comedy talent, Mario Joyner, opened the uproarious evening, setting the stage for the audacious humour of edgy comedic icon, Chris Rock.
All the elements of an exciting and successful event were in place: the fantastic Allstream Centre venue; a who’s who roster of Toronto’s corporate and philanthropic communities; a live auction for luxurious travel and vacation experiences; a grand finale draw for a $25,000 cash prize; and some of the funniest performers in the business.
As well as offering up the city’s most playful prescription ever, the event celebrated the successful completion of the monumental $60 million capital campaign in support of the hospital’s historic redevelopment.
"The $2.5-million raised at this gala was significant; it helped us close out the ambitious $60-million private sector campaign we started five years ago," said Michael Burns, Gala Co-chair and Chair of the hospital's Foundation Board. "This is all part of Toronto East General Hospital's $360-million capital redevelopment project, which will culminate with the opening of the innovative Ken and Marilyn Thomson Patient Care Centre."
"Rock, Arnett and Joyner kept us laughing all night long. What better way for Toronto to support such a great cause!" added Michael Geddes, Gala Co-chair and Vice-chair of the Foundation Board. "We are thrilled with the turnout we received for the event, which is without question one of the city's standout fundraisers."
“It was a marvellous evening,” added Foundation President, Teresa Vasilopoulos. “We are deeply grateful to all the individuals and organizations that helped to make this benefit such a tremendous success.”
Congrats to Andrew Duncan for winning the Grand Raffle for $25,000!
