2023 Fortune Ball - An Evening of Celebration, Tradition, and Giving Back to Markham Stouffville Hospital
On Saturday, November 25, 2023, Markham Stouffville Hospital Foundation welcomed more than 700 guests and community members to The Fortune Ball, graciously supported by lead sponsor Green City Communities Inc. and presented by TD. Attendees enjoyed a night to remember at the Hilton Toronto/Markham Suites where they were treated to exceptional cuisine and live entertainment in celebration of the modern traditions of Chinese culture—all to support Oak Valley Health’s Markham Stouffville Hospital (MSH).
The evening featured returning emcee, Jennifer Hsiung, host of CP24 Breakfast, as well as other special guests. Wushu Project began the night in majestic fashion, dazzling guests with their dragon dance, followed by the musical stylings of The Caverners Beatles Tribute band performing a stunning live homage to the English rock icons that marked their 60th anniversary this year.
MSH Foundation is honoured to partner with leaders of the local Chinese-Canadian community to inspire more Chinese business and philanthropic leaders to help bring abundant blessings to MSH through the sharing of their good fortune and prosperity. Founding members of MSH Foundation’s Fortune Leadership Council (FLC) returned as Co-Chairs for this year’s gala. Alan Kwong, David Ho, Gordon Chan, Kenny Wan and Stephen Li, all distinguished members, lead the FLC – an assembly of local Chinese business leaders with a shared mission to give back to the hospital.
"We commemorate our community's dedication to ongoing progress and exceptional patient care at Markham Stouffville Hospital," said Co-Chair Alan Kwong. "Gatherings like The Fortune Ball not only reinforce unity, but also ensures that we are continuing to nurture the health and well-being of our neighbours for the future."
Access to the most state-of-the-art equipment is essential for MSH to continue providing the exceptional, patient-centred care the community needs and deserves. The urgent and evolving needs in surgery, diagnostic imaging, and emergency medicine are constantly changing as our community is expanding and aging through the years.
“Markham Stouffville Hospital relies on the compassion of the community to keep on the forefront of technological advancements and deliver life-saving care when it matters most,” said Suzette Strong, CEO, MSH Foundation. “Government cannot fund all top priority needs – and so we rely on the support of our community to help bring a lifetime of care, close to home.”
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, donors, volunteer committee, and the entire community –$800,000 was raised! Re-live favourite moments of the evening on social media @supportMSH or donate at www.mshfortuneball.ca.
