Easily surpassing last year’s record of $1.8 million, LOL raised $2.9 million for the redevelopment and expansion of the Emergency and Urgent Care Program at CVH. The RBC Foundation also surprised guests with a $1 million gift, supporting the Pediatric Mental Health Urgent Care program.

“We are extremely proud that this year’s event was such an outstanding success, which speaks volumes about our community’s support to our hospital and Emergency Department,” said Steve Hoscheit, President and CEO of Trillium Health Partners Foundation.

Martin Short was the headliner and Gerry Dee returned as MC to entertain nearly 1,000 attendees at the International Centre.
