It was a night of all-black everything for The Sinai Soiree 2014, a black-tie gala where guests dressed their best in black.

The location was kept as a surprise and revealed about only a week before the event took place. The Fermenting Cellar in the Distillery District was a gorgeous, spacious backdrop for a soiree held by Future Sinai. Future Sinai is a young professional group that promotes and raises funds for the Mount Sinai Hospital Foundation.

Guests had a great time on the chalkboard stage to answer the question “What does Mount Sinai Hospital Mean To You?”. It was also a great area for photo ops.

A 3-person band of handsome gentlemen, The Walkervilles, did a great job entertaining the crowd.

The night ended with a $25 taxi chit by Crown Taxi to help guests get home safely. Always a nice touch!

Funds raised from The Sinai Soiree support Mount Sinai Hospital’s $500 million Campaign to “Renew Sinai:, the largest campaign in their history.

The Campaign to Renew Sinai will elevate our Hospital, with the creation of a magnificent new state-ofthe-art health complex, groundbreaking robotics and 3D guided imaging surgical suites, beautiful new labour, delivery and antenatal health units, expanded ambulatory clinics, new intensive care and inpatientunits, and exciting initiatives in research and personalized medicine.

A cornerstone of our vision is a special $57 million investment to double the size and impact of our provincially-leading Schwartz/Reisman Emergency Department. Building on previous gifts totalling $13 million, Gerald Schwartz and Heather Reisman have invested a further $9.6 million to kick-start this critical project, and an additional $5.4 million to launch an emergency medicine institute, the first of its kind in North America, dedicated to conducting the research required to support innovation in emergency medicine. The capital gift comes on top of a $33 million investment from the Provincial Government, leaving us to raise $14.4 million to complete this transformative project.
