On October 13, 2018, Lakeridge Health Foundation transformed the Enterprise Airlines private hangar at the Oshawa airport for a truly unique and elegant gala experience for over 450 guests.

The Hope is in the Air Gala was an incredible event, complete with a gourmet meal, silent and live auctions, a live painting completed on stage by Tim Packer, and much more! Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors and guests, we exceeded our fundraising goal and raised $244,000 for cancer care at Lakeridge Health! The R.S. McLaughlin Durham Regional Cancer Centre can continue to provide high quality care – close to home.
