Join us for an evening of mixology, fine food, friendship and entertainment as St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation presents our 24th Annual Gala — A Mid-September Mixer on Saturday, September 18th, 2021. Whether you enjoy sipping a Mocktail, an Old Fashioned, trying a Moscow Mule or a Mint Julep – there’s no doubt that classic mocktails and cocktails are having a resurgence in popularity. Celebrate with us as we deliver the much-beloved glamour of our Gala right to your door.

Guests of our virtual gala can also expect to enjoy the fine dining experience that is customary at our event – as Claudio Pingue, Executive Chef at LiUNA Station, will be preparing another gourmet meal complete for you to enjoy. In keeping with our theme, provisions this year will include flavourful spirits and custom mixing ingredients to pair with courses of the meal. Everything will be delivered to your home, where you can tune into our live-streamed event and enjoy all of the excitement of our ‘silent and vintage wine & spirits auctions, entertainment including a certified mixologist sharing tutorials, remarks and more.

Thanks to YOU – our sponsors, attendees, donors and auction bidders, the St. Joe’s Gala has raised nearly $6 million to support patient care and research at St. Joe’s. Last year alone, in our first virtual event, more than $365,000 was raised to support emergency mental health care, to enhance our robotic surgery program and to fund the acquisition of six infant vital sign monitors to provide the data our care team needs to keep babies born at St. Joe’s safe and healthy. We hope you can join us to carry on the tradition of generosity, enjoyment and celebration!
