The Rose Theatre in Brampton will host rock and roll guitar hero Don Felder, formerly of The Eagles, on November 23, 2019, in support of William Osler Health System (Osler). Felder will perform at William Osler Health System Foundation’s (Osler Foundation) 8th annual Gala Benefit concert.
The event is sponsored by DG Group, Orlando Corporation, Almag Aluminum Inc., Borden Ladner Gervais LLP, LiUNA! Local 183, Mrs. Lois Rice, Northwest Lexus—part of the Policaro automotive family, S. Robinson & Associates of RBC Dominion Securities, and Sodexo Canada.
More than 800 guests will come together to enjoy an evening of incredible music, philanthropy and fun. This year, the show will also include a special presentation honouring Orlando Corporation for their transformational support of Osler hospitals. In 2014, Orlando Corporation made history when they pledged $15 million to Osler’s three hospital sites—the single largest gift made to a community hospital in Canada at that time. The gift was part of a unique, time-limited matching challenge that inspired the community to support local health care.
“We look forward to our Gala Benefit concert all year long and this year’s show is going to be spectacular,” said Ken Mayhew, President and CEO, Osler Foundation. “The concert is an opportunity to bring together community members and leaders, donors, as well as staff, physicians and volunteers in support of a common cause: exceptional health care for our growing community. Funds raised through events like the Gala Benefit concert help Osler provide the care that is needed, close to home.”
