Host Your Own Event

Community events are a critical component of the Foundation’s annual fundraising goals. Individuals, groups and companies can organize a fundraising event and donate the proceeds to Mackenzie Health Foundation.

By organizing an event benefiting Mackenzie Health, you are contributing financial support and raising vital awareness to improve health care for our community. Proceeds from these events may be designated to a hospital department or program that’s close to your heart, including Woman and Child, Palliative Care, Emergency or Stroke Care.

If you are interested in hosting an event to benefit Mackenzie Health and require assistance, please call or email  Daniel Salvatore at 905-883-1212 ext 7496.
