It has been so long since we have been able to gather in support of Markham Stouffville Hospital Foundation – we cannot think of a better way to celebrate the fabulous South Asian culture than with a glamorous evening offering scintillating entertainment and opulent charm.

We are very proud to partner once again with leaders from our South Asian community to raise much needed funds for child and adolescent mental health care and MSH at the 3rd Festival of Colours event.

Date: Saturday, May 14, 2022

• Cocktail hour: 5:30 p.m.

• Dinner: 7 p.m. 

Location: Hilton Toronto/Markham Suites Conference Centre & Spa - 8500 Warden Ave., Markham, ON L6G 1A5

With the health and safety of our community remaining top priority, we will continue to follow and exceed all public health guidelines at the event. For this event, we are asking all guests to follow these measures to keep each other safe:

• Prior to arrival, all guests must complete our COVID19 screening for symptoms;

• Provide proof of vaccination upon arrival at venue;

• Masks must be worn in all public areas when not seated at your table;

• Guests shall practice physical distancing and good hand hygiene - sanitizer stations are available throughout the venue;

• We are limiting the capacity of the Venue To 40% capacity

• Hilton staff and servers will wear masks for entirety of event.

We will continue to closely monitor the changing circumstances of the pandemic and follow guidelines from York Region Public Health, as well as from the Infectious Disease team at the hospital. Should there be any changes we will inform guests accordingly.


Your partnership will ensure our Festival of Colours is a continued success for thousands of patients and families who rely on MSH every day! Sponsors benefit from broad media promotion and recognition opportunities associated with the South Asian Ball.
