The long-awaited annual Gala Benefit Concert in support of William Osler Health System Foundation may look different this year, but guests can still enjoy it from the comfort of their homes.

Canadian music icon, Sarah McLachlan will be the headliner for the 9th annual concert which will be held virtually for the first time due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The free concert will feature live and silent auctions as well as performances by McLachlan.

The concert is being held in celebration and support of the front-line staff and physicians who have worked endlessly across Osler hospitals throughout the pandemic and beyond.

“The physicians and staff across our hospitals have been working around the clock for months to meet the immense demands of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Ken Mayhew, President and CEO, Osler Foundation.

“They are our Health Care Heroes and this year, our Gala Benefit Concert is dedicated to them.”

Although a physical event isn’t feasible this year, everyone is invited to attend virtually to say thank you to our local health care heroes and use the opportunity to make a donation.

The release says funds raised through this virtual event will help fund essential equipment such as ventilators, electric beds, vital signs monitors and vein finders across Osler’s three sites; Etobicoke General Hospital, Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness and Brampton Civic Hospital.
