The party may be over, but Mackenzie Health Foundation is still celebrating the exceptional generosity of Carmelo and Milena Calabro.
Carmelo celebrated with family, friends and members of the business community, his milestone 60th birthday at a sensational Casino Royale theme party in May 2016. At the request of Carmelo and Milena Calabro, guests generously donated to Mackenzie Health Foundation in lieu of gifts, totalling more than $107,000.
Funds are being directed to the new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital’s Magna Emergency, a fund near and dear to Carmelo and Milena after experiencing an emergency of their own. After almost losing his life in a serious workplace accident, Carmelo was in hospital for more than four months, beating incredible odds.
For those who know him, Carmelo’s courage, strength and resilience to survive is nothing short of inspiring and admirable.
“Mackenzie Health Foundation is honoured to be the recipient of such a special celebration of life and giving back,” Ingrid Perry, Mackenzie Health Foundation President and CEO, says.
