On October 24, 1992 we held our first Angel Ball at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel to celebrate the 100th anniversary of St. Michael’s Hospital. Since then, our Gala has become a signature event for St. Michael’s Foundation, occurring every three years.
We’ve had spectacular success over the years, raising more than $17 million to support St. Michael’s, develop infrastructure and improve patient care. In the past, funds raised at the Angel Ball have benefited programs and areas across the hospital such as Women’s Health, our Chair in Cardiac Research, diabetes care and research, construction of the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute, our Chair in Trauma and Nursing, and most recently, our renovated Slaight Family Emergency Department.
2017 marks the 125th anniversary of St. Michael’s Hospital, another incredible milestone that we will celebrate at our Gala. The 2017 Angel Ball will continue to support the creation of the Slaight Family Emergency Department.
