Last month, the City of Vaughan held its annual Mayor’s Gala at the Terrace Banquet Centre, where almost 1,000 guests were in attendance. This year’s theme, “Making Modern History” was inspired by the City’s 25th anniversary and it did just that – made history with a record breaking $2 million raised thanks to the many businesses, individuals and residents who generously donated to support the noble mission to change lives. As part of Vaughan’s commitment to support the development of healthcare services close to home, guests were invited to participate in a live auction to have dinner with Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua and an opportunity to name a street in the Vaughan Healthcare Centre Precinct where the future Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital will be located. The successful bid came from Liberty Development at a record $400,000 which will go directly to the Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital. As the evening progressed, Greenpark Group of Companies pledged $1.2 million towards the Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital as well. The Mayor’s Gala – together with the Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua Annual Charity Golf Classic – have raised more than $5 million since 2011. The annual event benefits more than 100 not-for-profit organizations that provide essential services in the City of Vaughan and beyond.  Visit here and be inspired by the spirit of generosity.
