As part of Vaughan’s commitment to support the development of health care services close to home, the 2017 Vaughan Mayor’s Gala on June 8 at Universal EventSpace again supported Mackenzie Health Foundation’s Exceptional Care Belongs Here campaign to help build and equip Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital.

Guests at the Spirit of Our City-themed evening participated in a live auction for an exclusive winery tour and gourmet dinner with Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua at Two Sisters Vineyards.

The business community demonstrated its spirit of giving by bidding a record-breaking $350,000 – funds that will go directly to Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital.
