PMCC logoOn November 20, the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre (PMCC) at TGH and the Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation (TG&WHF) hosted a very successful fundraising gala Toronto's Four Seasons Hotel, in honour of Dr. Tirone David, Head of Cardiovascular Surgery, PMCC. The event raised $3.3 million net for cardiovascular surgery and the highest priorities at the Centre, plus a surprise announcement of an additional $1 million to support a fellowship at PMCC.

Dr. David is one of the world's most creative, dedicated and compassionate cardiac surgeons who operates on patients whose cases are generally considered almost impossible by most surgeons.​

The evening began with a reception, followed by a gourmet dinner and comedy by Canadian-born Howie Mandel, host of America's Got Talent. Master of Ceremonies, Lloyd Robertson, CTV News anchor, guided guests through the evening and The Honourable Pamela Wallin, Canadian journalist and diplomat, led a friendly "Roast & Toast" of Dr. David featuring memorable anecdotes from colleagues, as well as his daughter Adriane David, and figures such as Peter Munk.​

Dr. David reports being humbled by the event's remarkable success and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. For more information, visit​​
