St. Joseph’s Foundation hosted their Annual Gala dinner and dance on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at the Caruso Club in Sudbury.  The gala event was attended by over three hundred guests who indulged in delectable food, and were treated to live music to dance the night away! The elegant event created memories of an enchanting evening spent in the spirit of giving.

Due to the generosity of the many sponsors, donors and attendees this year’s event raised over $65,000.  These funds are being placed toward St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre to enhance accessibility for their patients which will build their confidence to embark on their rehabilitative journey to return home. Our gratitude is sincerely extended to all those who gave of their time and money.

St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre is a 64-bed complex continuing care hospital located on South Bay Road. Since opening in August 2009, St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre has transitioned 2289 individuals back to the community.  These are individuals who in most cases would have been deemed ALC.

The Co-Chairs would like to thank everyone for their kind contributions and for spending an evening with them!  Mark your calendars! Next year’s Gala is taking place on October 20, 2018.
