On Saturday, October 14th, UHN Foundation hosted the 11th annual Diwali – A Night to Shine, presented by Scotiabank, in support of Toronto Rehab at University Health Network (UHN). Held at Beanfield Centre with nearly 600 guests in attendance, Diwali – A Night to Shine raised more than $1.5 million for world-leading rehabilitation care and research.
Guests received a one-of-a-kind experience to celebrate India’s culture, traditions and legacy through music, food and entertainment, while learning about the impact of their support and the role Toronto Rehab plays in helping patients with life-altering injuries and age-related illnesses reclaim their independence. One of the highlights was a video featuring the inspiring story of Dr. Alex Mihailidis, a researcher at the KITE Research Institute, Toronto Rehab’s research arm, who used his own personal rehabilitation experience to deepen his own research.
Thank you to all guests and sponsors who made this year’s event such a success!
