The Rotary Club of Toronto is hosting their 11th Annual Fundraiser at The Steam Whistle Brewery on 285 Bremner Blvd (south east of the Rogers Centre) on Thursday March 28th, 2019 from 6:30pm.
All proceeds will be going towards The Rotary Club of Toronto’s Transition Centre (RTC) at St. Michael's Hospital. This is a program that allows vulnerable patients who have been discharged from the Emergency Department, who are able to manage their own care and behaviour, to stay at the hospital for a period of up to 18 hours in effort to transition back into the community. During their stay at the RTC they can rest, wash their clothes, shower, have hot meals and are also provided with hygiene products and clothing if necessary. The RTC is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by a team of community support workers who provide support and work with clients to create an appropriate discharge plan.
Guests of the 11th Annual Fundraiser will be treated to a delicious dinner and drinks, fun with friends, and chances to win amazing prizes. Prizes from previous events include a Toronto Blue Jays box experience for 20, dinner at The National Club for 4, overnight stays in Deerhurst Niagara Falls, Toronto Argonauts tickets, go karts, jet simulators and a used hockey stick signed by Phil Kessel from the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic bronze medal game. The Annual Fundraisers have also had an impressive portfolio of sponsors, including Bellwether Investment Management, Mackie Research Capital, EWA Capital Partners, RBC Dominion Securities, Harvey Kalles Real Estate, Arcadia Home Care and more.
