Letter From the

FOUNDATION Dear Gala Patrons, It is my pleasure, along with gala co-chairs Denise Baker and Stephanie Nourse, to welcome you to the 2019 OTMH Candlelight Ball. This year’s gala is more than just a fundraising event; it is a night of celebration as we say farewell to one of Oakville’s grandest evenings. For twenty-eight years, the gala has raised significant funds in support of worldclass healthcare at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital. We have never taken your support for granted. We recognize it is thanks to your generosity OTMH can provide exemplary healthcare close to home. As we open the doors to the OTMH Candlelight Ball one last time, we look back with tremendous gratitude at everything we have achieved together. Thanks to your support over the years, people in our community need look no further than their own backyard for medical care, treatment, and hope. You make this possible! With an event of this magnitude, there are so many people to thank. I extend my deepest appreciation to you -- our incredible sponsors, event partners, generous auction donors, dedicated volunteer committee, and our exuberant supporters. All of you share a passion to give that will transform the community hospital experience. On behalf of OTMH patients - present and future - who will ultimately benefit from your passionate generosity this evening, thank you. Sincerely,

Mary McPherson

CEO, Oakville Hospital Foundation
