It's been a particularly busy few weeks at UHN Foundation with the successful staging of two major fundraising events: the 11th annual
Diwali – A Night to Shine and the 19th annual Grand Cru Culinary Wine Festival.
Together, the events raised more than $6.5 million in support of programs at UHN.

The event features a series of private dinners in homes across Toronto and a live auction.
The largest event of its kind, Grand Cru is the top fundraising food and wine festival in the world, and has raised more than $132 million in support of research at UHN since its inception.
Opening night, Friday, Oct. 27, hosted at the iconic Casa Loma in Toronto, was the live auction portion of the weekend, which raised more than $1 million.
