On March 30, Osler Foundation honoured donors who helped support our campaign to build and equip Peel Memorial, making it possible for us to open our doors to patients this year. The celebratory event took place in the Atrium of Peel Memorial. The magic of Peel Memorial was brought to life with an extraordinary and moving performance by Canadian recording artist, Robert Pilon, accompanied by a cast of talented friends. The musical celebration echoed throughout Peel Memorial with guests standing and singing in unison with the performers. The evening concluded with the unveiling of the donor wall.
“This celebration could not have happened without the support of so many valued donors,” said Ken Mayhew. “Tonight is a celebration of your philanthropy, commitment and legacy of care that you have helped to build.”
Helping to turn the vision of Peel Memorial into a reality
The unveiling of the wonderful new donor wall provided the Foundation with an opportunity to thank the generous donors for their heartwarming support. The display honours a legacy of generosity, sacrifice, compassion and commitment. During the ceremony, Lois Rice, a long-time donor in making the new Peel Memorial Centre a reality, spoke from the heart, “There are very few opportunities in life to make a gift that will have such an extensive ripple effect. Supporting Peel Memorial is one such opportunity. It gives me great pleasure to know that our family’s tradition of giving in this community will make a difference in the lives of families for years and years to come.”
