On Wednesday, March 29th, we welcomed the men of MAPP for an exciting night of competition at the exclusive John Labatt Hall. This “Night of Champions” event honoured the donors, staff, patients and residents who are the true Champions of Providence in our community and beyond.
There’s Only One #1!
MAPP’s contribution to Providence Healthcare was at the forefront of everyone’s mind as donors voted in favour of granting $70,000 to create a new Ear, Nose and Throat Suite at Providence. This suite will allow patients to receive more services in-house to reduce the unnecessary stress of moving to another facility for simple procedures, and will better utilize the expertise of our current physicians. Providence staff is already buzzing with this fantastic news!
Let the Games Begin!
Once the voting was complete, the competition began. Men earned points for their team by competing in various games of strategy, strength, and skill to earn a gold medal and bragging rights as the “2017 MAPP Champions”. Whether you are a professional putter or a foosball fanatic, there were games for all interests and skill levels. Guests even had an exclusive chance to take on a national arm wrestling champion, Joe Gould, who reminded everyone that winning isn’t everything, especially when it’s impossible!
Ribs & Beer: A Match Made in Heaven
Available only for private events, the newly renovated John Labatt Hall was the perfect setting for our diverse and exclusive philanthropists to play games, network, and quench their thirst with over 20 brands of Labatt beer offered on tap. The beer was paired perfectly with delicious ribs, wings, and much more generously donated from Jawny Bakers!
Big Prizes for a Big Impact
MAPP events always include an exhilarating (and often rowdy) raffle and live auction. This occasion did not disappoint- raising an additional $4,500+ (net) towards Providence Healthcare. With auctioneer and professional golf entertainer, Todd Kierstead, the excitement was palpable with great prizes including Blue Jays, Leafs and TFC tickets, El Jimador tequila packages, a stunning custom sport jacket from King & Bay, and an exclusive Labatt Party Experience.
A special thank you to our evening sponsors Labatt and Jawny Bakers. Also, thank you to our live auction and raffle donors: Brown-Forman, Canadiana Flowers, Pandor Productions, McMann Events, George Macri, King & Bay Custom Clothing, Stefan Commercial Finishes, and Mike Mintsopoulos.
Don’t Take Our Word for it… See for Yourself!
