For many healthcare organizations the charitable donations and volunteer hours spent running, organizing and participating in special events can reinforce the local health system, giving people in that region a better quality of life. Without community participation many healthcare services wouldn't have the funding resources needed to continue. That's why it's so important for local heroes to step up and make a difference.
The William Osler Health System Foundation (WOHSF), a registered charity, is devoted to hosting charitable events with proceeds going to Peel Memorial Hospital, Etobicoke General Hospital and the Brampton Civic Centre, all partners in the William Osler Health System.
Brampton Events for Charity in Early 2014
Take a look at these Brampton events, operated by the WOSHF, and help make 2014 a healthy year for those in need.
Hockey Night for Osler
The Osler Foundation has teamed up with some hall of fame NHL alumni to create a charity hockey game unlike any other. Team Coffey (Paul Coffey) and Team Sittler (Daryl Sittler) will boast all-star lineups that include Dan Daoust, Marcel Dionne, Dennis Maruk, Mike Krushelnyski, Gilbert Dionne and Marty McSorley. The Osler Crusaders hockey team, comprised of Osler physicians, staff and donors, will participate with the NHL alumni with proceeds going to redevelopment projects at Etobicoke General Hospital, Peel Memorial Hospital while funding the purchase and installation of next-generation equipment at the Brampton Civic Centre.
Those interested in participating in the Hockey Night for Osler can sponsor the event, play, or attend the game as a spectator by purchasing a ticket, on sale now for $15. Visit the event page for more information.
