Community to show their love for Scarborough this Valentine’s Day as SHN Foundation goes online for the Love Song for Loved Ones virtual concert event
SCARBOROUGH (January 18, 2021) – On Sunday, February 14, 2021, Scarborough Health Network (SHN) Foundation will invite the community to tune in and give back to the Love Songs for Loved Ones event, a virtual Valentine’s Day Concert in support of our local Scarborough hospitals and the courageous frontline health care workers.
“This concert is dedicated to our frontline workers at Scarborough Health Network by a group of amateur musicians who have a real passion for music,” said Elizabeth Buller, President and CEO, Scarborough Health Network. “These musicians want to share their voices in honour of the incredible staff and physicians serving the Scarborough community.”
Starting at 7:00 pm EST, the event will be hosted virtually from Toronto’s Aga Khan Museum, with more than 25 amateur performers set to hit the stage in support of SHN Foundation. Proceeds from the event will help equip SHN’s frontline workers with critical tools and resources to better serve our Scarborough community. It will also support our health network’s ongoing fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, which has disproportionately impacted the people of Scarborough and has seen SHN tackling among Ontario’s highest case volumes.
“It is so important to raise funds from donors and from our community to support our hospitals,” said Alicia Vandermeer, President and CEO of SHN Foundation. “The cost of vital, life-saving equipment is covered by the hospitals themselves, as well as 10% of any new construction, renovations or expansion of spaces.”
The virtual event will be available at shnfoundation.ca/lovesongs on Sunday, February 14, 2021, at 7:00 pm.
