The hospital’s largest fundraiser of the year is made possible in part by the generous title sponsorship of the TD Bank Group, whose contributions have totaled nearly a quarter of million dollars in the last six years. 

“Like every hospital, Waypoint needs to fundraise to purchase new equipment, complete much needed renovations to enhance patient spaces and provide clinical training for our staff,” says Carol Lambie, President and CEO. “TD Bank Group’s commitment to making mental health a priority is helping us to offer the best care possible. We really are stronger together.”

Taking place at the hospital, the gala will welcome 200 guests to enjoy guest performers and mental health advocates Twin Flames, a ‘feast’ of hors d’oeuvres, charcuterie and gourmet stations for dinner, live music, live painting and exceptional company.

Despite polar opposite backgrounds, Twin Flames found a common musical language, taking the audience on a musical journey across Canada and the Arctic. They echo the voices of their ancestors and depict life on the land as they sing songs in English, Inuttitut and French, leaving the audience fascinated, intrigued and inspired. 

“Each year our team selects highly sought after speakers who have an important message to share about mental health and addiction, and this year is no different,” says Board Chair John Barrett-Hamilton. “We’re excited to welcome Jaaji and Chelsea June from Twin Flames to share their important story and we hope you will join us.”
