Jewish General Hospital Doctors’ Gala honours Department of Surgical Services

Once again the JGH did it! Close to 500 glam guests, including physicians, surgeons, leadership, generous supporters and friends of the Jewish General Hospital were on hand for the 3rd Doctors Gala on Tuesday November 20, 2012 at Congregation Shaar Hashomayim, Montreal, Quebec.

Chaired by Martin Schwartz (Dorel Industries Inc) and Peter Triassi (Pava Corporation), this elegant, black tie dinner/dance event was held in honour of the Department of Surgical Services at the JGH. 

The soirée, coordinated by Annette Goldman, JGH Foundation, and beautifully designed by Danielle Bitton and Lorne Levitt (Total Entertainment), began with an upscale cocktail hour featuring various food stations as well as hors d’oeuvres galore. Guests were then transferred into the spectacularly decorated Lande Hall and were wowed by Elsie Morin and Mathieu Roy of L’Oiseaux du Paradis, Soprano, Christine Williams and Tenor, Marc Adolph, who set the stage for a fun, glittering and most memorable evening.

Following this impressive performance, a beautifully presented 4-course dinner, creatively produced by Danielle and presented by Chefs MO, IAN Giroux, RYAN,CANDICE Mitkoff and ALAN Serour was enjoyed by all.

During the evening, eloquent, meaningful addresses were offered by Allen Rubin, Chair, JGH Foundation, Martin Schwartz and Peter Triassi, Event Co-chairs, Rick Dubrovsky, President of the Jewish General Hospital, and Dr Lawrence Rosenberg Chief, Department of Surgical Services.

An inspiring video of patient testimonials, created by Neil Oakshott (Eclipse Productions) was accompanied live by the incredible violinist, Dr (Eugene) Draw. Special guest, Jacynthe performed an upbeat and fun medley backed up by the Montreal Rhapsody Orchestra, the dance band of the evening.
