When we hosted the inaugural Providence Golf Classic in 1993, spearheaded by the late Gus Arrigo, along with his pals Dusty Miklas and Bill Cooke, the goal was simple, yet a stretch: raise $500,000 in five years to help support the capital campaign to build the Houses of Providence.
Our 16th annual Cuisine & Cuvée evening, presented by TD Commercial Banking and the co-operators , raised $200,000 (net) to help Providence Healthcare create a better care experience for our patients. This is the first time in our history that Cuvée has reached this milestone amount, and we send our many thanks to our dedicated sponsors, donors, Committee Members, volunteers, staff and supporters for helping us get there.
It was a smokin’ experience at last night’s Chef Experience and Cigar Lounge for the men of MAPP! With the support of over 70 in attendance, MAPP raised over $5,123 from the raffle draw and the live auction for the patients, clients and residents of Providence Healthcare! The evening was such a resounding success that in addition to the funds raised during the raffle and live auction, we also welcomed 3 new MAPP donors who signed up at the event!
The Foundation turned to Lori Duffy, Chair of our Planned Giving Advisory Committee and a Partner with WeirFoulds LLP in estate law, to ask her about appointing an estate trustee: what you need to know, think about, and consider when asking someone to handle a job of such importance. In addition to the information posted here, you can hear much more about appointing estate trustees by listening to our “podcast” online.
On June 9, 2016, we had a unique opportunity as WIPP donors to come together and hear the stories of other inspiring women. We were moved by our dear friend, Patsy Badali, a long-time WIPP donor and volunteer, as she shared her first-hand experiences of Providence’s compassionate care in action with her family. We were also inspired and enlightened by Greta Hodgkinson as she shared her personal journey and passion for the Canadian arts and dance.
We enjoyed an impressive accomplishment at last night’s Annual Voting Meeting, granting a total contribution of $50,000 to a most worthy need at Providence Healthcare, as voted by you! The evening was such a resounding success! With your support, we also raised $7,600 in our raffle and hockey memorabilia live auction! We also welcomed 6 new MAPP donors who signed up at the event.
I was at a crossroad, with only ‘hope’ remaining for a miracle to happen. To my extraordinary good fortune, it did! It set me on a course that led me to Providence Healthcare.
On March 31, 2016, we witnessed a truly wonderful evening of camaraderie that showcased the great power of collective giving! Together, we all gathered for a special first glimpse of the beautiful WIPP-funded revitalization of Seasons Café, with the redesigned space looking simply stunning!
