BMO Presents Glitter in Macau raises $300,000 for SickKids

Macau, possibly one of the most lavish regions in China, a melting pot in Asia filled with luxury casinos and endless possibilities- the extravagant scene was brought to Toronto last Saturday, at the inaugural BMO Presents Glitter in Macau event, benefiting SickKids/ The Hospital for Sick Children.

Shangri-La Hotel Toronto was the perfect backdrop for the sumptuous event. Hundreds of guests gathered on the third floor, which was transformed into a casino, for a night of fun and excitement.
Food stations with delectable Pan-Asian cuisine were available, table after table full of lobsters and oysters were served.

Nicole Leung, a 16-year-old talented singer, a survivor of VSD (ventricular septal defect), paid tribute to SickKids with her amazing vocals. Nicole was diagnosed with ventricular septal defect when she was six months old and received life-saving heart surgery at the SickKids hospital. Without SickKids’ help, guests would not have been able to enjoy her beautiful voice.

Glitter in Macau, hosted by the SickKids Foundation Chinese Cabinet, celebrated the new partnership between SickKids and the Chinese community. The event successfully raised $300,000 for SickKidsNeonatal Intensive Care Unit, the referral site for critically ill newborns.
