Angels Den

Thank you for joining St. Michael’s Hospital Foundation for a riveting evening of research, innovation and exploration! Because of you, Angels Den 2017 will be remembered as a game-changing battle for breakthroughs. We’re inspired by your support and spirit of discovery.

On November 21, a select group of St. Michael’s best and brightest researchers revealed their cutting-edge innovations to more than 500 captivated guests at Koerner Hall for a chance to win more than $100,000 in prizes. From our entertaining Angels — Joe Mimran, Michele Romanow and Michael Wekerle — to our talented host — Maureen Holloway — and our business-savvy jury, we’re so grateful to have so many friends and advocates in our corner.

Thanks to you, Angels Den has evolved into a force that’s driving life-changing discoveries!
