The 81st St. Mary's Ball

The 81st St. Mary's Ball

Friday, November 2, 2018
The Concourse, Windsor Station

For the past 80 years, the St. Mary’s Ball has been one of the most glamorous, intriguing and reputable charity events in the city.  And this year, the event is lining up to exceed expectations once again.

Under the esteemed leadership of Alain Bellemare, this year we celebrate the Renaissance of our institution and our magnificent objectives for the future. Just as the Renaissance was a new awakening of a modern era in human achievement and self awareness, our community’s continued investment in St. Mary’s is the framework from which masterpieces are born.

St. Mary’s has a renowned reputation for our relationship-centered whole-person patient care, and nowhere is this more apparent than in our infinitely valued and respected multidisciplinary Cancer Care Program.  Whether a patient visits our 3rd floor clinic for regular treatments, or has been hospitalized on our 5th floor with a chronic and life-limiting illness, they are cared for by the same team of professionals to ensure the continuity of care in every dimension.

While our out-patient clinic was renovated in 2009 and continues to offer state-of-the-art equipment and facilities; our 5th floor in-patient facilities are in need of significant investment. We are extremely pleased to report that the proceeds from the 2018 St. Mary’s Ball will be directed toward this project and will allow us to provide a supportive, comforting atmosphere and “home-like space” for our patients and their families.

We hope you will join us.
