With the help of 11 skilled (and generous) Captains and our wonderful Co-Chairs leading MAPP donors and their guest to victory, everyone was able to enjoy the gorgeous weather and a spectacular view of the city as they cruised around Toronto Harbour trying to win the coveted ‘Providence Cup’.

You made the difference!

Through your generous support of the live auction, raffle, and sponsorship, this ‘party with a purpose’ raised approximately $15,000 for the patients, residents, clients and families who depend on Providence Healthcare for exceptional care. The evening was such a resounding success that we welcomed 4 new MAPP donors who signed up last night!
