MISSISSAUGA – Trillium Health Partners (THP)’s highly-anticipated annual Diwali gala is back for its 18th year. About 1,000 attendees are expected for a spectacular evening filled with fusion food, dancing and entertainment by Bollywood singing sensation Kanika Kapoor.
The annual celebration has raised more than $9.5 million for research, medical equipment and patient spaces at THP to date. With an aging population, cancer volumes are on the rise. By directing proceeds to cancer care and advanced technologies, THP’s leading regional cancer program will be able to diagnose patients more rapidly and offer the most precise forms of treatment for the best possible outcomes. Funds will also help support health care research.
