The cause

When it comes to the health of our community, laughter really is the best medicine.

Michael Garron Hospital was founded during the earliest days of the development of East Toronto. We have a nearly 100-year history of providing first-rate health care with humility and kindness.

Construction is underway for the Ken and Marilyn Thomson Patient Care Centre and the renewal of our existing facility. These modern spaces - tailored to the needs of our diverse community - will reflect the excellent care and sense of community that are the hallmarks of our hospital.

By supporting Laughter is the Best Medicine, you’re not only in for a fantastic night: you’re making an investment in the future of every member of our community. And that’s worth smiling about.


Thank you to our generous group of past sponsors.
