What is Silver Ball?
Providence Healthcare’s Silver Ball gala, presented by BMO, is a truly elegant evening of fine wine, food and entertainment. The evening is hosted at the prestigious Fairmont Royal York Hotel with 900 guests in attendance. It’s a time to reflect on Providence’s accomplishments and milestones, and celebrate our extraordinary patients, residents, clients and families who continue to courageously overcome all odds in pursuit of a better future.
Every day at Providence is a testament to their strength and resilience.
What is the theme for 2019?
As we head into the 2020s, we thought it would be fun to relive the 1920s! Providence Healthcare’s Silver Ball celebrates our proud history while looking ahead to a new era of health, innovation, and with the help of the gala, prosperity.
