2017 was the year of the rooster… and we can’t stop crowing about all the amazing moments that have left a lasting impression on us.

Although Silver Ball guest Stacy joked that she was going to be the lucky winner of the 2016 Lexus RX350, donated by Lexus On The Park, her shock at actually hearing her ticket number being read left her speechless. “I have a friend who recently won a car at another fundraising event, and so I had been joking prior to the Silver Ball that I was going to be the lucky one this time, but I certainly didn’t think it would come true,” said Stacy, once the shock wore off.
Providence Healthcare Foundation hosted the inaugural Silver Ball in 1993, and we are so honoured that one of Toronto’s most successful annual galas continues to inspire, motivate, and affect change 23 years later.
Winning a beautiful Lexus was a real game changer for young Chris Walters. Although lucky in love, he had never won anything in his life, and never really participated in lotteries or raffles. But his luck changed at the 22nd annual Silver Ball, Presented by Scotiabank, when he discovered he held the winning ticket for the $58,500 grand prize car, a 2015 Lexus NX200t F-Sport. To Chris, it was a dream come true!
