Ahoy! On Saturday, November 4th, 2023, our gala co-chairs (or co-captains), Blair and Kathy McKeil, charted a course for a nautical-inspired night dedicated to raising funds for the Mental Health & Addictions Program at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton. We transformed LiUNA Station into a sea-faring vessel and took guests on a voyage they won’t soon forget. From Bubbly on the Bow, to a gourmet Captain’s Dinner, live entertainment, auctions, and more – it was a very special edition of our gala. We are delighted to share that we raised an all-time high of $775,000 for St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton to support mental health and substance use programs and services.
We’re so grateful to all of our sponsors, donors, friends and supporters for coming aboard! We hope to see you next year!
