Oakville (Ontario), Sep 5 (IBNS): The 5th Annual Oakville Diwali Gala in support of Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital (OTMH) is scheduled for Friday, September 14, 2018 at Lakeshore Convention Centre.

“The 2018 fundraiser will directly benefit the expansion of the surgical unit, putting essential equipment in the hands of OTMH caregivers,” said Mary McPherson, CEO of Oakville Hospital Foundation.

“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,” said McPherson.

“In past four years of fundraising efforts, the community has successfully raised $750k and feel optimistic to reach the one million mark this year,” said Rekha Sharma, Event Chair.

The theme of 2018 Oakville Diwali is Rang Mahal (Palace of Colours).

Activities include silent and live auction, Cause-Within-A-Cause, performances by magician Mike D’Urzo, fire eater Brant, Elena the Harp Lady (who plays harp in a balloon), etc.

Sanskriti Arts will present Bollywood style dance.

Besides, there will be exclusive raffles, live music, DJ, dancing and more.

This event features a gourmet dinner by The HOST and an open bar.

Individuals tickets are priced at $225 each, a regular Table of 10 pegged at $2,250 and a Corporate table of 10 for $3,250.

Diwali, the Festival of Lights and Joy, is celebrated by millions all around the world. The actual festival is in November.
