(Wednesday, September 23, 2009 – Orillia, ON) – Elegance, extraordinary culinary experiences and great entertainment are ready to be served during Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital Foundation’s 8th annual gala event, entitled ‘Taste of the Alps’. Set for Friday, October 2, proceeds from this year’s gala event will support the purchase of urgently required equipment for Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH).


This special night will take place in the Silvernightingale Ballroom at Casino Rama, and will transport guests to the breathtaking and unspoiled nature of the Alps. Famous for their mountain ranges, the Alps region is also home to stunning cities artfully intertwined with nature and offering a vibrant and rich cultural scene. A visit to the Alps is sure to revive your spirits and make you want to come back for more.


“Never before have we combined such rich cultures into our gala event,” says Dave Douse, chair of the gala event. “Each one of the seven countries in the Alps region has their own traditions, cultural and culinary experiences, which is sure to appeal to every one of our guests. The only way to experience it is to make sure you are there in person.”


Our gala guests have come to expect the best in food, wine, live entertainment, and silent auctions. This year is sure to reach new heights as we introduce a featured beer tasting, and exciting auction items such as a night out with Robin Williams, and front row seats to Gordon Lightfoot.


But the gala event is not just about sights, tastes and sounds; it is truly about a community joining together to contribute to the future of healthcare for our community and our region.


“Last years gala raised over $50,000 for urgently required medical equipment, which ensures that our community and patients receive the highest quality of care,” adds Douse.


Join us on October 2, at 7 p.m. in the Silvernightingale Ballroom at Casino Rama for the journey of a lifetime, and experience a night like no other. Tickets are $125 each with a $50 tax receipt. To reserve your tickets, secure your sponsorship, or donate an auction item, please contact the OSMH Foundation office at (705) 325-6464 or email us at events@osmh.on.ca.
