The 5th Annual Oakville Diwali Gala is Just Around the Corner!

The 5th Annual Oakville Diwali Gala is Just Around the Corner!

Keep your calendars open for the 14th of September 2018, when more than 500 guests will take pleasure in a magnificent grand gala, as Oakville Diwali presents Rang Mahal, a Palace of Colours at the Lakeshore Convention Centre. 

This is the 5th annual Diwali Gala in Oakville and is the town’s largest South Asian social event organized to raise funds for the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital.

The event is held every year by the Oakville community to not only celebrate the Diwali, but also support the initiatives of the Oakville Hospital foundation's beneficiary, the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital. 

Culturally and spiritually rooted within the South Asian community, Diwali, the festival of light signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge of ignorance, and hope over despair.

The gala this year, will directly benefit the expansion of the surgical unit, putting essential equipment in the hands of OTMH caregivers. More equipment, more surgeons, and a new operating room are the reasons why Oakville Hospital Foundation has launched a $3 million campaign to expand and enhance Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital’s surgical department. 

It is the Foundation’s largest campaign since the Hospital opened in 2015. The campaign will fund 77 pieces of surgical equipment and outfit a tenth operating room set to open this year.

As it happened last year, this year will be marked by a buffet dinner by THE HOST, an open bar,  raffles, dances, silent auctions, live music, DJ, magic performances, Cause-Within-A-Cause and myriad forms of entertainment.  Ms. Aarti Nagpal has been appointed as the Event Chair.

Anyone over the age of 15 can attend if they buy the $225 entry ticket. Tickets can also be purchased for a Table of 10 for $2,250 and a Corporate table of 10 for $3,250.

Over the past four years, the gala has raised over half a million dollars for the hospital's different causes. The planning board has launched this year’s 3 million campaign, and over 500 representatives from the GTA region have already been confirmed to attend.

The Oakville Hospital Foundation Gala is held in support of The Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, whose care and medical services are of great benefit to the Oakville community and beyond. Already 1.6 million square feet in size, the hospital has recently introduced advanced technologies that are expected to improve patient treatment on a wider scale. The contributions from the past galas have provided support for these advancements, and this year will be no different.

Sponsors for the event are invited to take up the different sponsorship categories present, which include Gold, Silver, Platinum, Presenting and Corporate Table Sponsor. General donations and contributions are always welcome. Donations over $20 will receive a tax receipt.
